So now that my car has almost 11k miles it seems like my driver's seat is more comfortable than it was when it was brand new. It seems like it is a little softer and the side bolsters hold me in a little better.

Anyone else notice this or am I just imagining things??

i put meguiars leather cleaner/conditioner on my leather once a week. I bought the car used about a month back and could tell the previous owner didnt take car of the leather at all. Now after regular care its starting to look better.

My cloth seats got a lot harder over time.

Yay for my racing seats!

Interesting. I have the '05 SE, so only the bolsters are leather. The mesh cloth stuff in the middle seems to be loosening up a little over time (which is a good thing).

I also use Meguiars on all the leather parts--but I use the wipes.

had mine since '03..mine has definately softened up and are very comfortable. They have the leather wrinkles really bad now but no cracks ( i condition them quite often)..the middle section i have replaced with a colored vinyl (pink obviously) but it feels the same to me as the original leather.

I lexol the hell out of mine and they don't look that bad, especially the passenger seat. My driver one has a butt fold in the bolster, but they still look pretty damn good after almost 100k miles.

And yes, I have noticed that my seats got a lot softer after they got worked in a little bit.
