leather upholstery paint

Trying to find a leather upholstery paint (called dye, but really a paint) to match the factory color code. I have a 2016 and none of the aftermarket guys list my code. Called my local dealer and they said MB doesn't sell a dye or paint touch-up kit. Any suggestions on where to go?

A few questions:
What's your color code?
Are you trying to treat a small or large spot, an entire seat, or all the seating?
Have you checked out Color Bond? https://www.colorbondpaint.com/colle...holstery-paint

I have used colorplus (google them )for many years just send them a small color sample even if your original color is slightly faded they will match it.

They are on record by Porsche to do theirs, I have now had 3 different MB color by them since the beginning of the year they all came out perfect

I just bought a 2016 SLK 350 with beige seats. factory code 205. The seats are in great condition with a few spots where the paint is worn on the exposed edges (bolster). So the application is in small area where I just need to work the paint into the cracks where the paint has worn off. When I look for aftermarket paints, no one lists a 205 leather paint code. Not comfortable with cutting a swath out of the upholstery and would prefer to match by code.

I've been working on this project for a couple of hours today (off and on), and I didn't find much that was helpful. However, i just came upon Seat Doctors, and when I walked through the process I discovered that when a VIN is supplied with the color code and a brief description of the color, it looks like they may be able to help. Suggest telephoning first (815.570.9534) to discuss the info you have before buying, but here's their website.

Check it out: https://www.seatdoctors.com/trim-code

Hope that helps!

I have been told that for lasting results non water soluble products should be used?
Leatherique dye is water based.
