That was a bad repair (cover-up?) job. Looks like someone attempted to fix a wear problem. Take it back to Lexus and ask if this is covered by your CPO warranty. If it is not, I'd look for a replacement skin for that seat at a salvage yard or see a leather restoration specialist in your area.

Thanks for your advice!
I visited Lexus today and 2 of the 3 areas will be entirely replaced with new leather! They didn't think the 3rd area needed to be replaced, but they agreed to revisit my concern if the leather further changes in condition in reasonable time. This wasn't the greatest experience, but I'm thankful they are standing behind their CPO warranty!

After reading through the entire thread, I decided to go with Leather Master. I was using lexol and now I realized it better off spending a little more to get the desire results. I have never done a deep clean with my leather and I've had the car for 4 years. I got the following items below. I also applied the solutions in the order listed.

1 LM-23142 - 200 mL. Leather Master Car Interior Rapid Cleaner
1 LM-25598 - 250 mL. Leather Master Dye Transfer Cleaner
1 LM-23146 - 250 mL. Leather Master Car Interior Leather Vital 250 ml.
1 LM-23145 - 250 mL. Leather Master Car Interior Leather Protection Cream 250 ml.

My center console was probably the dirtiest spot in the car from years of sand volleyball. Here are before and after pictures. Hopefully you can tell which is the before and after and I hope this can help others decide on what to get.
