BMW Cloth Upholstery Material Width?

Post by Dale Hedtke » Sat Dec 14, 2019 10:42 am

I am planning to purchase some Marineblau fabric P/N 51921846038 thru a BMW dealer, but they can't tell me how wide it is. I think it's 1.5m but I'm wondering if anyone knows.

Thanks in advance

Rooting through the Wallothnesch catalog they show a width of 1400 mm for vinyl which is 55" if that's any reassurance.

I ended up purchasing a slightly different fabric from BMW as the E12 cloth was NLA. I bought P/N 51921817333.

The color seems a bit darker (than my 40 year old fabric) and the corduroy wale is narrower.

It is 1.6m wide.

Interesting, thanks.
