The side bolster has had a repair done in the past and it is clearly not the right colour. I see this every time I get in the car. I have contacted a leather repair company who say that they can respray this piece but they would have to tape off the stitching to prevent this from being coloured.

What would you do?

It can be repaired, but as you say it is going to be sprayed (code word for vinyl paint.) You'll have to have both seats sprayed so they color match. The question is will it last; a friend had his Infiniti G37 Coupe similarly repaired and it flaked after a year of use. Of course, here in Florida, inside temps can reach over 140 degrees so that may have accelerated the breakdown.

That color miss match would drive me crazy (not that it would be a long drive :)
