The M5 Dash pulled apart

Hi Guy's,
I was able to take a picture of my dash pulled apart, almost gave me a heart attack when I first saw it.

I wasn't going to post the picture because I made a mistake on the resolution but you can at least see why I nearly had a heart attack.

The stitching around the leather dash was coming apart. I was really hoping they could some how stitch it up without making a mess.
