Is anybody aware of any problems with the Soft Leather option on the C70?<P>I've come across quite a few newsgroup articles in which people have complained about it but nobody has actually said what the problem is.<P>Scott

People have complained about it getting scratched very easily and also fading in high wear areas like the outward bolster. Feels nice but not worth the trouble, IMO.<P>Yannis<BR><P>

First I'v heard about the soft leather option as I bought my 98 C70 used. I have noticed that my leather is fading around the border area of the seat. I put leather conditioner on the seats every month but this are just seems to fade with wear. I have the light grey leather so it looks a little dirty in this area but it's just the fading taking place. Can something be done to get the color back?
