Yes, the 335 is Azurite, I got the pic from the owner's thread (I forgot the member's name though...)

Whether or not a specific Individual color can be ordered will depend on BMW AG (BMW HQ). Apparently, they will only do a maximum of a certain number in a certain color per year, or something like that.

So I (had originally) put in a request for Midnight Blue to BMW Canada. You have to go through BMW [insert your country], who will then talk to BMW Munich. And wait a few days/ couple of weeks to get the answer. I got the answer a few days later, but then I decided to go with Azurite because I could get a package deal with Individual Trim and Shadowline for less than just the paint color alone if I went with Midnight Blue.

p.s. I remember I also had more luck searching for pics using the German words for what I was looking for. Which I guess makes sense since Individual is not normally offered in the US.

So for instance:
Azuritschwarz metallic (Azurite Black)
BMW Individual erweiterte Lederausstattung Novillo Oxydbraun/Schwarz (Rust Brown)

The UK also has a number of Azurite E92s that I have seen in my searches...
2013 M3 coupe (Azurite Black, Black, Piano Black)
+ miata nut (2 miatas) + Mk6 GTI 5-door hatch (our mini-SUV )
