These photos were taken by a lease company (prices 2005).
Another photo of the cigarette burn from the previous page, better showing scale and position. 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.
Worth remembering that if you smoke in a lease car, you can also be charged for the smell. Cigarette odours devalue a car -- many people would refuse to buy a car with smoke smells.
If you have burns (or smoke odours) 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.

Eleminating Cigarette Smells
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!
