The actual problem is to remove the discolouration - else the seats are polished with leather polish and solution every month or so, so they are nice and supple and well maintained except for this self inflicted discolouration which I want a remedy for. 3M can't do that for me for sure.

Ive gotten in touch with that Color Glo from Kerala and they are supposed to revert if they can serve me in bangalore...

I got a message back from those blokes at Color GLO Kerala
Apparently they have a Franchisee in Bangalore

So this gentleman is coming to see the damage tomorrow at my office. He says has handled this kind of issue several times and is confident that he will be able to solve the problem.
Lets see.

So while I was on holiday the gentlemen came and attended to my vehicle.
My dad oversaw the operation.

And the car interiors looks quite amazing, with those horrible stains GONE!
I never took any photos of the car when the stains were there because I hadnt the heart to.

I will take photos of the freshened up interior tomorrow and share them.

The Rationalist.

Thanks for the recommendation. My seats are refreshed now and as good as they were when I bought the car.

Later today once Mr Rajan sends me the "before" and "after" pictures, I will post them here.

Today, they came to my office and did a moisturization job on all the seats, because it is one week since they did the "seat refreshing" work.

Im planning to sign up with them for an annual maintenance contract to keep my car interiors nice and fresh.

Shankar.balan,
Can you please share the total cost of the job done. I am also in a situation where my Linea rear seats are torn in small patches from a couple of places and a tear in the front passenger headrest.
Also, I am not sure if Linea OEM seats are leather of fake leather. Do they work on fake leather also?

Please contact Mr Rajan whose number is provided earlier in this thread and ask him to give you a quote.
One thing I can tell you is that the quality of workmanship is good.

Ok so these guys have done a very good job overall as can be seen from the pictures.

As a background, my front passenger seat suffered a ballpoint ink stain.
I compounded it by using some hand sanitiser as suggested by someone on TBHP and messed it up by removing some of the original seat dye and creating a dirty patch.
Then I created a further mess by buying some leather seat and vinyl colouring which promised to be of the same shade as my seats and sprayed it on. Oh God! That was a real mess as can be seen.

Then luckily someone suggested ColorGlo and I was able to connect with their Bangalore team who came home while I was out of town and just got on with the job.
The results are clear for all to see.

The rear seat - well, thats another story. I had inadvertently left a fibre cloth on the seat, after polishing the seats with leather polish and then had put the centre seat down to accommodate something. Left the seat down for a while and then when I raised it again, I found the cloth had left a dirty imprint on the lower seat.

Ive lived with this for a year.

ColorGlo sorted it out along with the front passenger seat.

Thank goodness these guys are here to help us look after our leather seats!

Nice find I've msgd them through their website asking if they have a Mumbai office. Would be keen to get some work done. Are there similar services in Mumbai?

Bought a pre owned 2008 CR-V and it has some leather seat tear in few corners and the usual wear and tear. Will be giving to these and hopefully it'll get solved.
OT, I'm looking for a reliable mechanic as well. Have some occasional shuddering in the CR-V (it's an automatic) and Honda says they want to dismantle the transmission to check further! If anyone has any recommendation, please do let me know.
