    Peeling leather?!

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    The seats in my '02 A4 is losing the topmost layer of 'skin' for lack of a better term. I'm not even sure if this is leather or leatherette. I'm getting little piles of flakes down in the seams so I'm thinking this seat will probably rip open if given enough time. I know I can't magically make this go away but is there anything on the market that can at least stop further peeling?

    That doesn't necessarily look like the leather is dry. Rather whatever was used on top of the leather is peeling off. Maybe something that was tanned into the leather or a lacquer-type/finish product.

    Although I'm sure some conditioner would not hinder the situation any further.

    Is there any particular brand of conditioner I should try? I'm looking at Connolly's Leather Care kit and I figure if it was good enough for Connolly then it has to be the shit, but holy moly is it expensive. Certainly more money than Auto Zone's leather wipes!
