M steering wheel stitching

Guys I noticed this nice blue and red stitching on the M steering wheel. Is that a standard thing or some steering wheels come with regular stitching?

Would have been cool if they offered the stitching on the seats. Don't even notice it on the steering wheel to be honest.

Just one of the items that are 50% different from the already nice 3 Series BMW ... How lucky we are to drive such a fine automobile
