Leather Question - 430

Hi, this is my first post here.

I am looking at a black and black 430 spyder but have some concerns on the leather of the driver's seat.

Input on cause and how easy to rectify would be much appreciated!

Cheers,

Stuart

For that mileage, the seat should be perfect. Only things that come to mind are a very heavy driver who sat in it for long periods of time or the seat got very wet.

Price also seems quite high.

People use the side bolster as a slide-guide to get into the cars. It's going to happen and it can be easily fixed. I've seen many guys pass on good cars for this one little reason...

If there's wear on the driver's seat, it means she's been driven and enjoyed.
