If you decide to go with the restoration for problem #2, I recommend checking out this product: http://www.leatherique.com/motor_car...w_leather.html

I am waiting for warmer weather and I intend to do all of my leather in my 98 528. I have read several posts both on bimmerfest and other sites that state that this product is very good.

I just ordered these, front and rear, custom order black/gray combo. Should be here next week! I got them for my old 325i, front only, and was VERY impressed with the fit/finish quality:
