That would be a disaster.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Nick- No way. From a lighter color to black, probably, but not the other way. And you have to dye leather, not paint it.

Good leather in a 2 seater and the dash will be around 3.5k i guess to do new leather on the seats... Then you get the best result, painting is not working, i know from experience with my old Peugeot 308 CC, it was white interior, let it paint in black... Total disaster, never again!

Nick, if you're daring there are products that can do what you're asking. The one I've used in the past is Surflex Colorant & Finish. It's good on leather and vinyl. Disclosure: while I am a man of many products I have not used this on Ferrari leather. If you have heavily soiled, cracking or worn leather you'll need to degrease, restore, condition and treat before applying the paint. Contrary to what I was thinking initially too; it's actually a paint which in theory can be stripped and reapplied if it cracks in the future. Sounds to me like a mess 10yrs from now but I have no data supporting the durability.

On the topic . . . one time, in band camp, I stuck (applied) a strong cleaner to a leather seat and used a soft brush for a deeper clean. Off came a cheaper product like that of Surflex and whaaala, a hidden treat which turned a 30min job into a weekend project to restore a seat that was painted to hide dry, cracked and dirty spots. Maybe be a trick of the sales trade for luxury cars?

Nick, if the car has new leather and in very nice condition IMO I'd let it be or look for a car that the interior needs work. Painting carpets - can't offer any guidance there, not sure I'd attempt it.
