Individual Leather B-Pillar Trim?

Anyone have an Individual with Leather B Pillar?

Could you post pics?

Curious exactly what they do and how it looks.

Thanks.

Can this even be done on an F80/2? I don't remember this being an option when we were heavily considering going all out on individual options. Then again, BMW is very accommodating when you are willing to pay. Subscribed for the answer.

I was told multiple times it could. It is above “standard” Individual outfitting, similar to leather on leather on steering wheel cowl, leather on the panels UNDER the dashboard and totally leathered doors.

I have seen it on the 5 series as well.

Just wondering how they do it on the F8x or F3x frame.

i doubt it would be a colour matched stripe like above as the door leather pattern does not extend into the b pillar

it'd just be all black by default

I agree that the 5 Series has different contours than the F8x B Pillar.

That's why I was very curious to see one from a forum member(s).

And in USA they are very strict. They require VIN of “Individual BMW” that part is replacement for and often proof of car at Dealership, to order some Individual Replacement Parts.

I know of someone who attempted to order $16k worth of leather and was rejected.

A good leather upholstery shop should be able to work some magic and make it happen if bmw individual can't. Especially if you want black.

Most who order an Individual BMW do not order solid Black Interiors.

Communicated with BMW Individual in Germany. They did confirm they did cover B Pillar Trim in F8x F3x vehicle’s, but could not supply any pics.

No one here has ordered?
