How much was it to add the leather dash?
Any dealer should know how to submit the Special Order Form to do an Individual order; your electronic order gets coded specially and your dealer submits additional paperwork that gets tied to it on the backend.

Yes, there's an approval process that they go through with BMWNA and BMW AG, both to make sure they can accommodate any special requests you have (very old paint colors, special interior treatment requests) and also to make sure they're willing to do so (e.g. getting the M3 GTS' Fire Orange paint on a regular M3 was almost always denied, but a few have been made).

The option for a leather dash and upper door trim (I believe code 4M5?) doesn't seem to be available for the US. As to what Individual would charge you for this, let us know if you ask!

Individual Interior

Can you order any individual interior color interior available, or only the listed colors for that model? It is clear regarding exterior choices, but unclear regarding interior.

I wanted the cohiba pretty bad, and the plastic dash looks like shit and would have probably been a deal breaker. Also pissed that there is not a carbon fiber option for the M5. I have the carbon fiber on my X5M and I love it. The piano finish is the best of a bad situation.
I'm exactly with you. Love the Cohiba personally, willing to pay for the added option, but a deal breaker if I can't get upper dash in leather as well. Kindly keep us appraised of your order, you will likely be the pioneer/precedent, would love to know if indeed it is possible to spec a custom interior while still preserving upper black leather dash board and upper door trim.

BTW, I believe you can spec the color of your alcanatara headliner, did you consider doing it in brown faux suede or will keep the factory black?

+1 on the lack of CF interior, but I suppose through the BMW Performance line you can get it after the fact.

As of now it is a go. I will get an exact cost. Hopefully I can get the upper door trim too. I heard also that you can spec the headliner in the individual color, I am a bit worried that it might be too much. It would be nice to have a reference.

Interior can be any color, including custom matched to a sample you have (e.g. favorite T-shirt). I haven't seen anyone here post about getting that done so I have no idea how much it is, but it's definitely possible -- though considering how much even things like color strips on the seats or contrast stitching are just when choosing from officially offered colors, I imagine the cost of a fully custom interior color will be substantial even by Individual standards.

Finally got pricing on the Cohiba Individual upgraded to full.

Z1XX-Cohiba Full Extended Leather (Piano Trim) $9,500.00 (CAD)
ZSP- Special Order $400 (CAD)

I am little shocked actually, since Individual already has some of the full leather bits.

I guess a good news-bad news deal. Good is one can order it, bad is that it costs an arm and a leg.

What is the CAD pricing on (regular) Full Leather and then on the Cohiba alone? Since the Cohiba option has a good amount of extra leather relative to stock extended leather, I wouldn't have thought basically adding the dashboard and upper door trim should add up to a whole lot.

Still dunno if this would even be an option for US cars, dealers here have shown relatively little flexibility in working with a customer on custom orders, and the US spec guide technically doesn't allow/list a specialty leather in 'full' form.

OK, if Cohiba Full is $9,500+$400, then that is just nuts! This is basically a 'go-away' price from BMW as they clearly make every effort for the customer not to disrupt the 'factory settings'.

You may be better off just doing Cohiba and going to a custom upholstery shop for the dash and upper doors. Funnily enough, as I type I am having a set of Euro Recaro RS 4 seats fitted to my Audi tomorrow by a custom upholsterer, the projects he has done are simply magic, and by the time he is done you would think the car came as such from the factory.

Here is what he did last month on a Panamera Turbo, literally every single panel (and seats of course) was wrapped in custom leather and stitching. You can see the intricate details and how many pieces there were (small vents, tiny trim around floorboard, etc.), yet it really looks like it rolled out of Zuffenhausen that way. Just something to perhaps consider rather than pay such obnoxious price BMW is demanding.
