    Hi- I recently got a metallic silver 90d with grey leather seats. Are these seats coated with something to protect them? Anyone tried Opticoat leather and vinyl protectant? I am being offered to get the whole interior covered for ~$350. Does anyone have any opinions?

    I had my white signature leather done a year ago when the car was new. Drivers seat has dye transfer at the belt line on the backrest. I have tried a number of leather cleaning products to get it off but no dice. So far, contrary to the paint treatment which i think is great, i am unimpressed with the leather treatment. My car goes in next 16th December for its annual Opticoat maintenance treatment to maintain the warranty, and i will let the pro have a go at it. if he can't clean it, then i will officially report it as a waste of money and time. The Opticoat glass treatment is also a waste of time.

    Anybody have any more experience with this opticoat? I've been looking at a few of the products out there and am considering a ceramic type of coating but also want to do my interior. Looking for opinions

    I have the same issue as Dborn and am equally as unimpressed on my beige leather seats.

    I can't speak for Opticoat, but I'm an installer for Ceramic Pro and IMO I think interior coatings are a waste unless you get it retreated each year. Depending on usage and traffic, must stuff last around 12 months.
