It was smashed when they didnt offer it on the E46 M3 and I didnt know it could be custom ordered, and now this possibly..... Sad sad sad.
remember those vivid yellow and orange colors from the 70's? They were full of lead which is why they went away for so long. Until Dupont and the rest worked out how to do the same colors with non-toxic water based paint. So yes, its 'just paint' but not paint' you or I want to use.
