A quick way to check is to see if there is the double stitching on the door where the leather is. If you don't see any visible seams and stitching then you have leatherette.
I do have the follow as you stated. The seats just feel tough vs the 335 i sat in last night. I know what leather feels like and now i am double questioning my self. Other than the door what is an other way I could check? I havnt been to my car today yet.
