Leather damage

Hi guys was cleaning the car and saw this on my passenger seat

I'm 100% sure it's not a *** burn as no one is ever allowed to smoke in it

Q1) What do you reckon caused this ?

Q2) how do I make it look like normal again ?

Q3 ) it won't get larger will it ? ( iv looked its only like a little bit of top colour that's changed like a skab)

I'm thinking of a coral red leather touch up paint of eBay but before I do anything ill seek you're advice guys

Have you tried wiping it with a damp cloth? It's not a burn as the surface is still in tact. Looks more like biro or dye from a clothing garment but hard to tell from the pics.

The E93 leather have a coating to reflect the sun so this may have some bearing on the cause.

I personally wouldn't try touching it in. It would probably stand out more...

looks like the surface has been caught on something, finger nail, button something like that. It shouldn't get worse as it only looks to be surface only
However personally I would get it professionally repaired especially if it is a wear area.
