These photos were taken by a lease company (prices 2005).
This is a fairly small cigarette burn (6mm across)
and incured a recharge of £45+vat which was charged back to the
driver. It's probably not cost effective to have this repaired at a trimmers,
but by dealing
with all other damage on the car, you could still avoid paying for this as most lease companies have a threshold of around £100.
If you have a cigarette burn similar to that shown on this page and you are wondering if and how it can be repaired, and how much it will cost, upload a photo to Ask the Experts and we'll advise you - no obligation.

We carried out our odour kill service on a Range Rover, and as usual gave the customer a call a week later to see if everything was okay - we always make a follow-up call with our odour kill services because it doesn't always work the first time... this was one of those cases!
