Try searching the archives, I believe this topic has been covered before. (search function in top right of screen) Your car should have leather. Some wrinkling or friction discoloration happens over time. Once the leather has been well cleaned several conditioning treatments may help. Everyone has their favorites (Lexol, Meguiar's, Leatherique, etc) I've tried just about everything but one product that can really wake up old leather is called Lederbalsam. It is a german leather condtitioner made for equine tack. It does not dye the leather but it will condition it as well as anything I've seen. If you can't find any locally or mail order I can put you in touch with a couple sources.

Hope this helps...Lee
