How did you get that strip at 12 o'clock to be blue?
Did you dye it?
I want to do the same thing but dye it red
I know it's leather so it will absorb the liquid dye

I carefully painted it using the BMW matching touch up paint. The strip at 12:00 is literally a yellow rubber band, so the paint adheres really well. You may need to touch it up occasionally, but no big deal (I have once since doing it). You will want to use a fine detail brush around the stitching and use a very steady hand. I suggest you do this before installation to get the wheel positioned where it is easy to paint, especially around the stitching.

It looks really good to me and looks like it's factory. Good luck!
