I asked BMW for titanium silver stitching in my last e92 and they did it free of charge... even the steering wheel and shift boot had it... not sure why though... they only thing is the lighter stitching gets dirty quick

I wish BMW would make more colors available, even at a premium. For example, to the poster above me, how did you get the titanium silver stitching order put in? I can't imagine that a SA would just say "Sure, no problem." to a request like that...

Beautiful car and bike. I like the color a lot, even though it'd be hard to maintain a low profile driving a car that color. The contrast stitching on the inside is especially smart.

I would never drive this color but it looks amazing in photoshoots. I must say, the interior is very sharp, especially with the green stitching on the seat, looks fantastic.

I don't like green. The color that I like the most is yellow. But the car is great all in all.

Amazing photos, sick looking M3 and beautiful bike!

I would drive that car every day with a smile on my face!

It's just so different, that's why I like it!

Sadly in Australia both front and rear rego plates are mandatory. Otherwise how else will they get their revenue from all the mobile/fixed speed cameras and redlight cameras! (unlike here in the US where the cops are pretty lenient on no front plate).

I love the colour and really think it depends on where you live.
Here in Pacific NW, no f*cking way would I own it though....the tree humpers heads would pop off and you'd be slung up as an earth killing non-conformist, hipster hater...(personally don't have a problem with that).

But in Queensland, Australia where this car is, the weathers warm /hot and tropical most of the year, and the colour just works.

Also Holden has been doing bright colours on their HSV Commodores (think Pontiac G8-GXP) for years now, so the tastes of people there are more used to it. So a bright green M3 is a nice middle finger to what I affectionately call 'bogon sleds'. (Aussie for redneck)

BMW does offer more colors, BMW individual, just ask your SA to send a request in for whatever you want. From what I understand as long as that plant (plant your car is being built in) has that color in their system (cars made in the US like the X3 don't have many) BMW NA will say okay, but usually the cost of a special color is around $4,000! it used to be $2,500 about 5-6 years ago which I think is reasonable, $4,000 is not. I almost ordered Monte Carlo Blue for my X3 and my SA thought they might be able to do it since the X5M has that color, but decided $4,000 (10% of the cars base price) was just insane.

If I do get a M3 Sedan when the new ones come out and they will do a fire orange with orange stitching for say $5,000 in total, that would be super tempting for me, would have to actually keep it for more than 3-4 years though if I pay that much since you know you are not getting anything back when you trade it in...

Individual M3, what's not to like about it?
Surely, it will not blend in, and it's loud, but it's an M, so why not?
It stands out, in a good way imo!

If this was the color in real life it would be incredible. However, it seems to be a bit enhanced. Still an awesomely bold statement to be driving this thing around. If i get another M after i sell mine I'm going to consider this for sure.
