Fire Orange M3 @ Sterling BMW - Lime Rock Edition?

Saw a Fire Orange M3 with CF bumper inserts displayed out front of Sterling BMW today. I was just driving by so I couldn't see, but I think it's a Lime Rock Edition. On BMW of Sterling's website, they show a 2013 M3 that just arrived, for $79k, with Fire Orange paint.

Can anyone confirm?

BTW all the LR edition M3s have the same badge without saying which exact number the cars is.

I don't think that's #1 of 200, it's horribly misleading.

All the plaques say "one of 200", it's simply stating that this is one out of 200, not #1

^^correct ours has the same plaque and so does all 200.

I wish BMW would number them like alpina or GTS that would be pretty cool and would make it a little more special.

People are paying above and beyond window sticker for these 200 babies. I had to fan off 2 other guys before I can actually touch one yesterday at Shelly BMW .

i don't think it's over priced, just a weird marketing ploy. if you add up all the piece parts for individual color and CF accessories, price comes out around MSRP

yes, at least to me the car looks amazing. Kind of a 70's color, like something you'd see on a 3.0 coupe - in fact I'm pretty sure that I had a Matchbox 3.0 that color as a kid. But the car is gone now. They've got a couple of M3 verts in instead. Actually a whole row of M-cars lined up in front of the showroom. Was just there today picking up some wheels I had straightened (too lazy to drive all the way to Elkridge, it's worth the extra money to me to let them handle it.) I just dropped them off at my local shop that likes me to have my snow tires mounted and balanced (why pay BMW dealer prices? And the guy drives a 5er) we'll find out how good their wheel guy is, Mike will let me know if they're not straight.
