Subject: [E36M3] Seats: BMW dyes & leather, Leather-Master dye
If the dealer can re-dye, that might be a very good thing to do.
I bought my M3 as someone's lease ended, and the lessee f_ked up the
center console with a big ass cell phone holder. The dealer
patched it, correct texture/tint and all before my delivery.
On the day I bought it, a light/magnifying glass couldn't help me
find it! I was totally impressed. Three years later, you still can't
tell it was patched. Point is, the BMW dye might well be worth it..
Did you know BMW sells original leather by the yard as well? They do!
Or, call Leather-Master and ask them for a custom Sunsafe tint. Tell
them it is a BMW M3 and that many people have asked for this "light
grey" color...they should know what it is. Someone once
sent them a leather swatch cut off the rear seat (underneath)
and they made up batches for Duane Collie, me, and a bunch of
It's $45 for three bottles and an application kit:
- 140 ml Sunsafe Cleaner
- 140 ml Sunsafe Lotion (with custom grey tint) **
- 140 ml Sunsafe Cream
sponge, cloths, rubber glove, instructions included
My Invoice number was 3466 on 7/7/98 if that helps, but I
think there is an older lady there who'll remember this.
Their phone numbers last I looked were 800-300-2359 or
336-854-5921. They are in Greensboro, NC...right near the
heart of the U.S. furniture manufacturing market in Highpoint.
