Aftermarket Upholstery: Does anybody do this?

I know people who have added aftermarket leather, arranged through the dealer, on cars where leather was only available as part of a package of stuff they didn't want.

Anybody doing this on a 3er? Leather or fabric mix?

Probably not the input you were looking for but,

If I were to do anything significantly aftermarket with the interior, I'd have the OEM alacantra seats ordered overseas and shipped to the US.

You did read my mind. I can't bring myself to order stock 3er leather and really like the alacantra look but it's not in my DNA to spent stupid money on a car that already specs out at ~$55k msrp. You know the alacantra price, installed?

My alternative was a high quality, rich brown leather on top of a black/black 335. That would get me better leather without having to deal with a 2-tone dashboard (which looks like shit IMO). $2k +/- wound be fine.
