Default M Texture Anthracite alcantara/Nappa leather

i got the M Texture Anthracite alcantara/Nappa leather interior; very proud of it, as there weren't many like it around here, in Bucharest.

buuut, in time, my ass managed to rip the alcantara apart.

now just look at the pics, it looks small but it messed up my whole interior

anybody has any ideea of how to repair the damage?

Major bummer.

The only thing I can think of is to bring it to a professional shop to see what they can do to stitch it shut.

you can't source the m-alcantara material from BMW. You can source the same square perforated alcantara but it does not have the m-colors underneath.

Go to a BMW dealer. They could do something but it would be very expensive.

How? Do they still make the E46 M3 seats or would he just have to buy a used set and let them do it?
