Enter your VIN here:

this will bring up the BMW color code.

People sometimes respray all the seats and doors if they can't match the color.

Not sure if there is a color code # for beige seats. Most likely it's just called sandbeige. Try www.realoem.com. Enter your VIN, pick the seat image, and scroll down to upholstery. They all say ENDED, meaning they don't make them anymore. Try junk yards, ebay, etc.
There are leather patch/repair kits. Search this forum, I've seen them.
The bottom wears more than the upright portion and you can buy replacement leather (pre-cut) for the bottom. Either give the whole seat to a repair shop or separate the back from the base and they'll take it from there. You can do it yourself; not sure how easy of a DIY it is. If the leather is that bad off, consider replacing the foam underneath, too.
