Indeed it did :)
In last few months I was still fighting with some issues - car had less power and higher fuel consumpion then it should. Although at first I suspected turbocharging issue, after some digging it turned out to be problem with ignition. Cables on distributor were switched for 1st and 2nd cylinder. Which was surprising finding, because I did not disconnect them from distributor during disassembly - they were sucked in to distributor, so I took that off as one part, and when assembling I put cable with ignition sensor automatically in to spark in 1st cyllinder. Don't know why before engine repair it was working quite ok, but not afterwards. Anyway now I connected them correctly, changed spark plugs (just in case) and it started to work Ok - power is back (approximately :)) and fuel consumption seems also back to normal.

This weekend it also moved to new garage... in Poland.

And today I finally managed to clean the leater with combination of clener + sealant DJ supernatural. I think that the difference is quite visible :)

Thank you both :) Well the drivers seat is in a bit worse condition, but still not that bad :)

As for the update about the car recently I have replaced master clutch cylinder (the one on the gearbox), as it started to leak (despite the fact that the "old" one was replaced two years ago - but I guess it didn't like to lay around during engine replacement without the breaking fluid and it rusted inside.
Also based on my counting the fuel consumption is back to 10-10,5l/100km, which is the same as before the repair - so it looks all works as it should (despite some small and intermittent idle RPM fluctuation...).
