Great update, full of tips as well as detailed info on what your doing
Looks a good match from the picture you posted.I'm not sure, but from what i understand, capitaseating sells original Recaro material, or works closely together with them, but i might be wrong.
Nevertheless, i think their fabric matches the original seats pretty good. maybe a tad brighter, but really hard to tell.
Note that the capital seating fabric is new, vs my (still slightly dirty and worn) seat. see my picture below, taken today for comparison.
What i can definitely say, is that the EK9 / DC2 original recaro seats often get (from light to massive) bright and pink-ish when exposed to UV-rays / harsh sunlight over many years.
maybe not the best picture, but here's a slightly faded pink-ish seat for comparison. I have seen much worse, but can't find any good pictures atm.
I'm sure you get the idea

I may need to mention here that i ordered my Capitalseating part, shown in the pictures above, a few years ago, so i can't guarantee the material and quality is still the same today, but i hope so, because i'd like to place a big order there soonLooks a good match from the picture you posted.
I definitely see the difference in the bottom pic. I'm going to order a sample first and wash my seats.
My front seats don't look faded to be honest not like the pic you posted.
