    Dry leather seats - best remedy?

    Hi all,

    I've got some Dover Grey leather seats in my 1991 Saab 900 and the condition is generally pretty good - but they're rather hard and dry and luck lustre. Especially the rear head rests, which are a bit like elephant skin!

    I've attempted to both clean and condition the leather with some Autoglym products, but I'm wondering whether they're having any effect. I've made around 4 applications of the conditioner without much progress.

    Is it a matter of patience for the leather to soften up or should I try a different product?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Karl
