Default Touch up paint and leather

My 2011 has some thin lines in the nougat seat leather that need a color touch up. The bumper needs needs some paint touches as well. How do I figure out what shade of black my car is? Also where would you recommend I purchase these touch up products from?

+1. Find build sticker for your car to find which black shade it is. Hopefully it was attached to warranty/service manual like it should have been, an hopefully you have that. If not, find the other duplicate sticker on the body itself. Somewhere in trunk (under the trim), though on D4's I don't know exactly where.

Look in spare tire well. It could also be onder the carpet area in trunk. Carpet that's not glued down. Could be numbers or letters. Go to YouTube it shows there also. I've used Dr Color Chip for years. Let it dry good then follow instructions.
