White stitching on Carbon Leather

Saw a fellow forum member post on the same topic recently, and thought I'd give it a try. Although I purchased nylon thread in all the colors of the ///M rainbow, I felt white was the best match for my 'OEM +' preference. Took about four hours over the course of three or so days. Happy with the result...

Looks bloody awesome Iceman! I'd love to have the carbon trim but have to settle with my alu...

Good job!

Did you replace the original stitching or just loop the white around the black?

I would like to know the process as well, a loop around, or stitch replacement.

Second, do you have some sort of bubbling/ defect in your carbon trim over your driver's AC vent in the middle, or are my eyes messed up?

OP has to be commended for taking this on himself...nice job!
From what I can see in the photos, it looks pretty legit, too.

I ordered mine from BMW Individual with light grey contrast stitching in 2013. For reference, this is how it looks from the factory:

Thanks for the reply. I'm thinking the lighting of the picture is playing tricks on your eyes. Carbon leather is in as-new shape.

Regarding the technique I used, here's a link: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=938914

Finally, if anyone needs red or blue - I purchased thread in all the color of the M rainbow, but decided to stay with white.
