Military Sales is a BMW Division that specializes in military sales. It's a group of 5 people that run the military program for Pentagon Car Sales, Bavarian, and all the other smaller companies that are privately owned who sell to US personnel stationed abroad. These companies can't do nothing to approve individual orders. They can request individual options from Military Sales Dept but in the end it is all in the hands of the Military Sales Department at BMW HQ in Munich, which will automatically deny it. They don't understand how much money it will make them if they opened up the individual program for us. My car was one time deal to see how the process works. It took 9 painstaking months before they said yes and said never again they will approve individual color. One of the conditions that they have to meet is that they also have to get an approval from BMW NA since it will be US spec car. Hopefully things will change for better in the near future.
