Wrote email to dealer requesting part replacement ASAP... Just like this guy got...

Oh, and here are pics from under my passenger and drivers seats... Shame on BMW! Suggest you check your cars peeps.
I just checked under the seats on my '11 335is and the they look factory fresh with a clean baked on black painted finish. BMW must have changed seat manufaturers.

I was worried because the car is stored in our Florida house garage that gets very humid inside when I store it for a couple of months in between visits.

Current Stablemates:
'12 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet (MT); '11 BMW E93 335is (DCT); '08 BMW E60 535xi
