John: Thank you! It hadn't even occurred to me to see if the part could be purchased separately. Ordering now ...

Just received more parts from Chris.
He wrapped and padded my door pulls in leather to match the seats and door cards, as well as recovered e46 seat backs. More than happy again and a pleasure to work with.
$25 a door pull and I provided the hide.

There was a large window behind me, they are dark red. The Orange couch didn't help...

Additional kudos for Chris. Just had him recover to stock configuration my old coarse spline steering wheel for the 635CSi. Absolutely top quality work. The leather has a bit more grain than the stock wheel but otherwise it is very, very nice.

Also had him recover two old mushroom shift knobs. Fine grain leather used on those and they look 100% as new. Very reasonable price for the quality of the work and amazingly good communication and turn-around time. Could not recommend more highly. I'd post some photos, but haven't been able to figure that out since KillerPM took away the uploader!

If he satisfied Mike he MUST be good! ;) It's great to find a US-based leather craftsman.
