UPDATE 2:
I was able to confirm that they supply paint for "some" BMW interiors.

I also have a little more information about the product used--this Nextel Coating is a solvent-based system, while the factory BMW paint is water-based.

I have inquired about the water-based BMW paint uses, but I'm not sure Mankiewicz will be able to give me that information. Fingers crossed!


A little more info about the Nextel Coating:
It seems to be much more fingerprint and oil resistant than the factory BMW paint, so if you're up for repainting all of your soft-touch pieces, this could be a "better" solution.

But just a heads up, this paint isn't cheap! The smallest shipment of the Nextel possible is the "Quart Kit"--which comes to:
Nextel Primer (includes primer and primer hardner) - $60 (makes 1 quart)
Nextel Suede (includes suede paint and suede hardner) - $110 (makes 1 quart)
Nextel Reducer (used in both primer/suede) - $16 (1 quart - used in both primer and suede).


I think this would likely be enough to refinish an entire interior!
*REMINDER: this is NOT the OEM paint--similar though. I'm working on getting the OEM paint*
