White stitching

Got the BMW perf electronic wheel and the white stitching has grown on me to the point of wanting to do white stitching on the shift boot, e brake boot and possibly even the seats. I have extended black leather with carbon leather interior. Thoughts?

NO, too much. Probably will look good. Unsure, don't do it, waste of money. Worth every penny....

That's what my mind tells me every time I am about to do something with my car...

That's what I did, the BMW performance e brake has the white stitching and I retrofitted the performance shift boot with the m3 base. Now everything sans the seats has the white/silver stitching

You've basically described the interior of the Frozen White M3's that came out late last year, and a few other ensuing "edition" cars.

I did a DIY on my carbon leather trim to match my fox red. this pic doesn't necessarily show the details but i'll try to find a better one later. It is relatively simple to do yet time consuming.

White stitching gives me shivers.

As soon as color transfers off your jeans. Or coffee spills. Or dust settles in. The white is gone forever.
