Hopefully the wrinkles will work their way out over time. Maybe after it settles some you can take off the covers and add a little foam to tighten them up?

Here is a picture of the seats I did myself, with the leather from Autoberry.

This was before I used some steam to get most of the wrinkles out. It looks worse in the picture because of the shadows.

Looks really good! Glad to see that burgundy can still be matched.
