a little obnoxious for them to be talking individual colors at this point, particularly in light of what I consider to be an incomplete lineup of standard colors.

LOVE the color of that leather! Combined with Alpine White would look great!

The full leather on that one seems to be on the entire lower part of the dash...not just vertical strip just to the right of the shifter as it appears on the visualizer. I hope that is the case as I like the additional leather on more of the dash.

The lack of colors offered seems to be strategy on BMW's part to make you pony up for individual paint.

Very classy combo (ok, not a fan of this wood trim though).

Amazing Amaro Brown leather. Agree with others, such a pisser they are limiting the standard colors (particularly interior) to be relatively plan to generate more Individual.

That color brown is beautiful. YMS with that color and CF interior trim or brushed aluminum would be killer

Mineral White isn't an individual color though, it's a standard option.

I just wish they would make the doors and lower counsel brown as well. The color is too gorgeous to only do bits and pieces.

I don't get these "individual" colors that come from a set of selections on the configurator online.

To me individual is when you are having the car painted one of a kind, not when BMW just takes a set palette of colors and says "yeah we're calling these individual and charging $2k for them even though Tom Dick and Harry might pick the same off the BMW website". A true individual color, sure they will need to track it down and stop production etc., and for that a fee is reasonable. These "individual" colors that you pick right off the website right below the regular colors are just the same as the regular colors, I'm sure they are preloaded at the factory ready to shoot just like Alpine White is.

Seems like an asinine way to price a color, there's nothing individual about them other than BMW breaks them out from the regular colors on the website, adds an "individual" header, and charges like two grand for them.

That Mineral White M4 just looks awkward. I really like the M3 sedan and i will get it as my next car.

I think on the visualizer, that part is leather...it's just black.

You got it. It's ok we with me if it really signficantly expands the color palette in number of colors usually available and includes unique M colors not available on the F30/F32. I wouldn't be keen on paying $2k for glacier silver even if I would like to have it as a standard choice but if Frozen Silver or San Marino blue for example is available I 'd consider them without anomosity for gauging tactics.
