Well even if you use can spray, it may look better but it will feel different as the fabric will become more rigid and not as soft

Well I took the car to car trim specialist who initially said they could be dyed,so I took the car down and straight away he said nah can’t dye them because there fabric?he reckons you can only dye leather,he reckons that where the sun has damaged the fabric(faded)the dye will set different colour making the seats look blotchy.now not sure how true it is but he seems honest enough,if anyone knows any different let me know

It can be done.
I watched an R32 YouTube video a couple of weeks back where the seats had been dyed as part of the build. Was an ozzy silver 32. Will try and find a link.

On one of the FB groups a guy dyed his seats and they came out pretty good - long process but the result looked great. I'll try find the link and share.

IF you are going to can spray, if possible take the cover off, after spraying and drying, use softener soak it.....dry and then should be close to factory finish...
