Does this 535i have leather or leatherette?

Hey guys, first post here and looking to buy my first BMW. It's an 08 535i and I'm trying to get more informed about all the packages/options before I purchase. I found this one that has sports package and cold weather package, and I just wanted to know if you guys think it has leather or leatherette? Doesn't have premium package but not sure if that automatically rules out leather. I posted the pic below.

If you can't tell the difference, then don't sweat it.

FYI, one could have ordered leather without ordering the premium package, but you do get leather with the premium package. If you have three little buttons on your inside rear view mirror, you have the premium package which has leather. Too, if you see ambient lighting (orange glows on the center console and on the door wells) you have premium package. With premium package you get leather.

Better still, use a BMW VIN decoder.

Now you will not have to worry about anything else, just put your VIN and VOILA!

Looks like leather with comfort seats and sports package to me.
