: It's not worth spending the money on a new boot. Leather should be able to be cleaned and/or dyed to it's original condition. Once reconditioned, you probably won't be able to tell. John Be had mentioned that he used some WD40 on his to take out white marks from concrete, etc. There are other exterior car cleaning products which may also do the trick.
My 98 2.8 boot doesn't fit properly and BMW is expected to issue a service bulletin and replace them soon. Perhaps you could get in on that if all else fails.
I agree with Janet. Hiding this from your husband would not be a good thing. Good luck...
