The first coat looks good already. How many coats are needed? Definitely a cheaper alternative to swapping and spending 2k for a saddle interior swap... Looks good..

Unfortunately, the paint is going to peel over time. Why not save the money to reskin your seats with vat dyed leather in the color of your choice? The "cinnamon" hyde in BMWs are vat dyed & soaked in a dye instead of painted. You can tell if leather is vat dyed if the top grain is the same color as the underside of the hyde. Just my opinion here..
