Default Leather repair?

I'm not huge on having a full leather interior car. However. Thatís what comes with the Turbo. As itís all leather, you get little nicks and scratches in it. What does everyone here do about that? Any common small repair remedies?

Leatherique is a great leather treatment that does a nice job of "puffing" up creases etc. If you haven't used it before, give it a try and see if you don't notice some improvement.

It's available from Amazon (you want both the treatment and the cleaner)

The Turbo comes stock with a sealed and coated leather. It wonít really soak up the Leatherique treatment, but the Leatherique cleaner will do a good job. If you get any nicks, rubs etc an auto upholstery shop can quickly make them disappear.

If you spring for the optional natural leather, it is uncoated, softer, but much more delicate. This is the type of leather that Leatherique treatment was formulated for.

Never had an issue using it on any leather. However, I leave it on for a day or two in warm weather, then use the cleaner.

I had a scuff and a local shop repaired it. If you call a porsche dealer I am sure they could recommend someone if they don’t have someone in-house.
