The problem with fixing the seam is that BMW sewed it from the inside out. Meaning they stitched the inside of the leather, flipped it right side out and mounted it onto the seat.

The proper way is to remove the leather and re-stitch.

BUT, I have had some success with one of these curved sewing needles.
