I really wish there were good aftermarket options since my leather is messed up too.
If its a power seat, thats probably the most complicated component on your BMW. Acording to BMW anyway. I wouldnt recommend taking it apart persay. Taking it out is relitivley easy though.
Ever hear of Robson Leather? Ive heard that they are the original manufacturer of the leather in BMW's. Their is some aftermarket options, but not much. Depending on the interior colour of the car why not invest in some M3 Vader seats? The seats (front and rear) can be swapped out very quickly. Except the colour of the carpet may not match unless your interior is black.
