Question BMW 6 convertible LEATHER

I have Ivory leather in my BMW 6 convertible 2011 (new model).

I damaged the leather on some places and the color faded away and looks ugly.

I live in Thailand (Phuket) and the dealer can't help me. Where can I buy a proper repair kit or 2 meter Ivory leather to repair my chairs.

Thanks for your help!

Take a look at leatherique.com. You may be able to purchase matching leather dye. Email George, the owner, with pics (his email is towards the bottom of the main page). He knows everything about leather and will give you good advice on how to address.

Quite welcome. I'm inquisitive - would you post a pic of the leather?

e-mail address

The Bimmer Site is a bit complicated for me. ( I am 68!). I can send a picture from my IPhone if you give me your e-mail address. Thanks a lot!

A few of my friends have used leather restoration specialists and the results are amazing. They fill in cracks, fix tears and the final surface is as smooth as OEM.

Check the local online yellow pages there should be listings under leather repair or leather restoration.

Thanks,

I contacted the company Bespoke Leathering already. Seems that they have the solution.
Nice cars you have. I have BMW new 5 and new BMW 640i cabrio. Both brilliant cars. Live in Thailand. Great for cabrio in early morning and evenings.

Enjoy your day,

Fred
