[Questions]Leather re-paint

Planning on re-painting interior door and seats leather.

First question is how do I find out what leather color I have? I know it's black but there are like 5 black color options.

Second questions is if anyone tried to re-painting leather into another color.

I was thinking about " Imola Red" for door trim and outer seat parts. Not sure how it may turn out

I'm pretty sure any of our regular E46s with black leather are color code N5SW. I know mine is. I'm guessing the other codes are for custom versions of black interiors -- perhaps for the BMW Individual program.

Painting doors seems easy and should stay well. Painting seats, is scary because you get in and out of the car few times a day. Wonder if re-painted seats will wear off

Do more researching. It's a very very dedicated project that can go very wrong.
