I'm ex Army bud, so anything made of black leather gets the old Kiwi boot polish treatment. I use a product called Renapur once its clean, which is actualy for motorcycle leathers. It moisturises and conditions leather brilliantly. I'm pretty sure the leather seat covers just unzip, so if your partner or your self know any one with a sewing machine, it shouldnt be too much trouble to repair the rip....providing its on a seam?
