May I ask why vinyl instead of leather? Can't see if you have the extended or not, but if vinyl looks rich (can't tell from your photo), guess it doesn't matter that much.
Looks great, but you can only get away with that on a white car, like yours. Very unique. Take care.

Thanks for the comment,
I don't have extended leather interior and the reason why I picked vinyl instead of leather is,
It's cheap ($9.99 for 24"x10FT), self-adhesive and easy weeding,
Also, it has more color choices than leather

The very first picture looks like aluminum trim. But the other pics show the white off pretty good. I like it. What was the sandpaper for?

It looks great! I'm thinking about doing it myself. Where in bay area are you? Perhaps I can buy you a cup of coffee and check yours out first.

it would be sick if you painted all your stiching on door panels and seats to white.
some guy did it on his red M3 with Bamboo Beige interior, he painted all the stitching to red.

Thanks all for the compliement! I'll upload close-up when I have time. The finish looks more like paint than vinyl and I'm very happy with the result.

Good point about the speaker rings. I am also thinking about the steering wheel trim. White makes a nice contrast to my black interior, but I don't want to over-do it and create visual distractions from driving.

Know of anyone to do this locally? I've been wanting to do deviated stitching.
