It is available from BMW. It is available in both smooth and dot styles. Here's the catch.

Pieces come 140cm x 60cm (55" x 24"). I have gotten these before in tanin red "dot" and they look remarkably machine made and are poor quality. This is approx. 9.16 square feet. At wholesale, this means the leather costs ~$42.XX per square foot. This is more expensive than the finest available Ferarri OEM Connoly leather. It's more expensive than any leather I have ever found period. OEM M Nappa leather costs the same price, except it comes in 55 square foot hides. The leather I use on very high end projects is approx $16 per square foot.

If anyone wants Topaz Blue and is willing to pay a premium, let me know and I will make it happen.
