I don't know much about leather finishing, however it seems that seat bolsters wear out quick across makes. The outside driver's bolster is the one that gets it hardest from getting in the car.
In my 93' Taurus SHO, the material covering the bolsters is shot. I also have a 2005 Saab 9-5 Aero and the driver's bolster is showing some wear around the stitching.
It could have something to do with the way you get in the car. I'm guessing your a big guy from the 430 model and big guys (or women with side/back boobs), are hard on seats. When you get in the car do you probably slide across the bolsters and butt drop the seat. When you turn, the body rubs on those bolsters. Over time they wear out. Aside from getting a seat cover, and keeping the leather supple with conditioners, I dont' know what to tell you.
