They made a one time trial exception and said they will never do it again. I originally requested Frozen Black with black extended and red stitching and for some reason BMW kept denying it saying they won't do it (I know now why - the 20 US special editions are the reason). Then finally Military Sales in Munich got the approval from BMW NA that they can do one time Frozen Black US spec sedan. At least this is what I was told.

Then I met Christina Fleischer at the M Fest in Nurburging and she said she was the one that OK'd it but either the interior with red stitching or the Frozen Black exterior, but not both. Reason was it would make the 20 special editions not special since that would make it 21 (Frozen Black with black leather/red stitchin/black GTS wheels and black accents) Thank you Christina. I picked the paint.
Very nice

Glad to see another M flight member with another 1 of a kind. You and Dave need to do a shoot together! If I was still there I would definitely have liked to shoot both the cars together for free. Enjoy it over there, I know I miss Germany every day.
