Post Anyone else interested? Bambo Beige Manual Shift & E-Brake Boot?

Since I have a '08 E90 M3 with Bambo Beige Interior, I wanted to get the matching Manual shifter & E-Brake Boots from LeatherZ. Well I spoke to Andy there & he said he does not have that material in stock & would only order & make them if there is a min. of 4 orders. SO, I was wondering if anyone else would be interested in ordering them for their Bambo Beige Interior?

He said it would be:

$355 with M Stitch
$305 without M stitch

PM me if your interested!

Also, I am in no way offiliated with LeatherZ but have their product & like their work & quality especially since they did a custom job for my Red Alcantera interior on me E46 M3. I really want to get this for my E90 M3!

Jon being the other brother at LeatherZ

So I have a third person interested :thumbup:

I guess a possible no go! Here is a quote from the e-mail back from Andy:

"Marshall,

Here is a reply I got from my brother. Someone misquoted him when they said he could get OEM leather. No, I did not. He is misquoting me. I tried many spinney samples and none will work. One guy thought he had a match, I sent the same sample to that Technic guy (who I trust, really detailed audio mods) and he said it was close but it clashed. I will reply to the thread if you want. Let me know what you guys want me to do.

Andy Maddux"

So I responded telling him that I would like a sample sent to me in FL so I can see for myself how close or not this is. I know this takes some of the guys off the list. Also, Andy stated that a DCT set would cost $395

Yes, take me off the list... 4 people saw the samples and all of them said it clashed.

I'm looking into another option as we speak...my BMW parts guy is looking into possibly getting a 1m x 1m swatch of the leather from BMW (a company I'm part owner of has a wholesale account with them)& see if that's possible. Then I would just have to send LeatherZ the material & have it made (cost prohibited of course on material from BMW), especially if more than 1 set can be made out of that much material!

I hope so... if LeatherZ can't get it something must be going on at BMW.

So I have a third person interested :thumbup:

1. mrtm2008 - Bimmerfest/M3Post/M3Forum
2. Technic - Bimmerfest
3. Camaross305 - M3Post
4. ?

Is this through Jon? I ask because he sent me quite a few swatches trying for me to compare to my Bamboo Novillo and we never did quite get a match...so he must have gotten a match thorugh someone else? I'd be very interested in the Novillo set with the M stiching (but it needs to match). PM me with more info if you can.

thx

I have been e-mailing with Andy his brother & I believe it is Andy who does the physical sowing himself. He's sending me some samples too, but as I mentioned, I'm waiting to hear back from my friend at BMW Parts to see if he can get the a 1 meter x 1 meter of the leather from BMW, but he's not back in until Tuesday of next week.

Can they do it in Fox Red? Brake+DCT? I'll probably give them a call.
