Does anyone know if it is possible to recondition this type of sratches?

Sorry i dont live in Miami... but I found pages online if ur ballsy enough to DIY this. It involves sanding the leather down with sandpaper and then redyeing the seats.

In Hong Kong, the price to have this done is approximately $120 USD, to have the whole seat completely re-done, re-dyed and re-stretched to an almost new standard.

A good custom car place would probably know someone. Don't know anyone in Miami and I'm kind of a DIY guy (after MUCH research)...
