Just to clarify, BMW has never shown San Marino Blue as an available color on their website for the M3/M4. For the (non-CS) M3/M4, San Marino Blue has been an Individual color and must be specially ordered during the order process at your BMW dealer.

For the M4, BMW has "standard" colors, with Alpine White at no cost, and six other metallic colors available for $550. In addition, they have offered a few other "standard" Individual colors, such as Tanzanite Blue, for ~$1800, but at the moment, these are not shown on the website.

All other colors, including San Marino Blue, are non-standard Individual colors, must be approved by BMW, add additional time to the manufacturing process, and about $5200 to the cost.
After the F80 EOP, as your aware, SMB is now standard $550; surprised it's not a $1,800 priority 1 for MY 2020. Tanzanite has been removed for MY 2020 as a Priority 1 opinion. Interesting that the G20 has Tanzanite II exterior option. As M4 CS EOP is June 2019, BMW USA is using the $550 SMB to drive sales for remaining F82/F83 production run.

Your F80 SMB should hold its value as a $5,200 individual option, but not for the F82/F83. PS I know that your F80 has full black with blue stitching as I'm going to inquire with individual next year if I can add blue leather panels, similar to the full leather silverstone contrast with the full black/blue stitching with SMB for a F83– not sure when the M8 will be released.
