I got Fibrenew to do some touch up on the my seats. I have the white leather seats which are a complete pain to keep clean and they seem to scuff really easily. I am overall happy with the work these guys do, generally seemed super detailed. I got both my seats touched up quite extensively with scuffs and wear on both seats and parts getting re-dyed. Cost was $200, guy was here from 11am - 2 though.

Here one example of a before and after of the driver side left bolster. (I apologize if my photos or links are crap)

sorry it took so long to respond guys. I looked it up and for them to fix the tear and spray the entire surface it was $210 at the dealership. Its amazing. It even holds up to weekly or biweekly leather cleaning. No dye ever came off


THERE IS NO WAY YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TELL !!! Its an amazing service. I was almost going to drop thousands on a new seat. These guys will save the day
