Can anyone recommend a good leather cleaner & restorer?

I have a Tuscan with cream (or magnolia) seats, the bolster is worn on the edge (common), the seat back etc has lots of cracking lines which are filthy plus the interior could do with a general good clean. I've seen some images previously of seats that have been properly cleaned and they've come up beautifully - any suggestions?

Thanks
Richard

These guys are very good http://www.furnitureclinic.co.uk/

I used the Leather Care Kit on mine - using the cleaner with a sponge, squish to create a foam and apply to the seat (foam gets into the creases), then applied the condition cream. Cleaned up my leather seats a treat in the RR and Griff.

They sell some repair kits and colouring balm - not sure how bad your scuff might be, but worth calling them for advice.

I use BMW Leather preserve kit/cleaner with UV protection on my 1999 magnolia/cream leather. £16, Works a treat. No scuffs.

Are you sure it's leather? TVR craftily cut costs by using vinyl on some of the bolster's.

Thanks HH. What a pity! Can make a price difference of £500+ to Tuscans, T350, Cerbs & Sags. I am lucky, so far with my 50K, 1999 Griff. See before and after using BMW cleaner. BEFORE BEFORE

The Magnolia top paint on leather is beginning to flake but not bad for 13 years and 50k miles.
