Merino leather on F33

I've really enjoyed my current F33, but have always disliked BMW's dakota leather. It feels rough, cheap, almost fake to me. I've been in numerous other brands, including some far downmarket, with much better leather. I thought I would get over it and care less, but I have not.

I like BMW's merino leather, and when I looked at the ordering guides for the last couple model years, I saw that offered on the 435/440 via "individual" options. Merino seems to have disappeared completely on the 2020, missing from the guides and the online configurator. Is it impossible to order a F33 with anything other than dakota leather now, aside from doing "true" Individual with all the cost and hassle that involves?

I saw a reference on another forum to a 2020 "M Sport Individual Model" that includes, among other things, opal white extended merino, but that is the only mention of such a model I could find online. Is that a real thing that can be ordered, and if so, anyone know details/cost/etc?

There are indy shops that can replace the leather in your car.

True, but I am sure that would be $$$$$ compared to getting merino to being with.

You should check the prices, may be lower than you think

I have Individual merino leather in my '18 f33, but the ordering guide did not indicate it was possible. If it's one of the "standard" f33 Individual colors, it's normally $2,500 on top of the high end package leather. Best to call your dealer who knows, understands and is experienced with Individual cars.
