Amazing interior (leather/trim) color change DIY, awesome results!!!

I saw this from a thread on an e46, M3 bmw forum, so far the outcome looks truly amazing, and he's still not done with the project yet. Long story short, this guy re-dyed his interior leather seats, and trim from dove grey, to imola red and black, and in my opinion the results are amazing! It makes me interested in doing this myself! Here are a few before and after pics from the thread and link.
