    Try a auto upholstery shop sometimes dealers use a vinyl/leather repair company to freshen up the interiors, I always used the same vinyl repairman to fix scuffs and tears at my bodyshop, He changed around $75 for a average repair and when he was finished you couldn't tell the repaired area from the other areas.

    Your leather can be "dyed" by an upholstery repair person. They basically get resprayed, like painting a car, to look like new. If you have a good dealer their used car department will have contracted someone to do this on their used car inventory. Ask around the dealer. A service advisor might be able to point you in the right direction.
