Should I replace seats

I have a worn leather driver's seat and a damaged leather rear driver's side seat. The rear seat had a solution spilled on it that dried it out immediately and it has been unresponsive to all conditioners and rubs. It has since stretched the leather and stitching.

With the exception of those two imperfections my 2008 G6 GT is near immaculate.

Should I replace my seats in order to up the resale? Or would it not be significant enough?

Have any pics? Your best bet would probably try and find some good seats from a salvaged/wrecked G6. Buying new would be pretty expensive.

I thought you could buy replacement oem leather covers & install them yourself (even so, I'm sure they are far from inexpensive). They may also be impossible to find by now.

Before spending the big bucks to replace seats or OEM covers, I would get a quote from your local trim shop to see what it would cost to repair them. Might save you a lot of money and most the ones I've dealt with are pretty honest and will tell you if its best just to replace them.
