Yes, they will be very soon. (for an obscene price over 4k per set)

Proper owner documentation will likely be required, as these black 220 M wheels will be a limited-edition production OE part.

They should at least put an exhaust or some sort of performance mod on it. It doesn't really matter since it is not available in the US.
Correct, no U.S.-spec version will be sold.

Wouldn't make any difference. Monte Carlo Blue is 'off limits' per BMW's cheif product distribution manager.

If you live in the USA, this color will be available on the X5M & X6M only for the foreseeable future.

Not unless you are moving to another country to buy a Euro-spec 'M3 Edition' car.

Yes, and it will remain that way for at least another 12 months. (or more)
