Interior Leather Trim Question

i'm about to retrim my interior in another colour and have been looking thru all the interior photos

I realised that

1) cup holders are black for extended leather, but for individual leather they are painted same colour as the seats?

here is a individual leather shot


extended leather:


for the individual leather guys, are the cupholders painted to match or somehow wrapped as well?

2) I notice some seats have the double stitching that runs through the middle of the seat up from between your thighs up to your headrest. But haven't been able to figure out what option this is/ was? mine has the full double stitching all the way, some have only between their thighs and some only on their backs. anyone has any ideas on this?

this is my car:


this one doesn't have it, although its extended leather too.

Maybe it's a market thing. Your car is RHD, so maybe they do it differently for the places it's sold.

US E93 has the thigh extension like yours and its sewn to the lower cushion.

And I think with individual you can have whatever you want if you pay for it and are willing to wait.

You have the Euro/AP M3 seat bottoms with the larger side bolsters and different stitching. The US cars get the sport seat bottom(non M3) like the 335s and all have (sucks but its what we get). The US E93s though get the real M3 bottom with stitching for whatever reason. Individual or normal order doesn't seem to have any relation to what bottom portion you have... Determined by market.
