Lumbar support is already available as option, HUD is not likely to be featured in 3series till next generation comes out...

Maybe not 20, but the E46 3 series did have 17:

(click the 3 series link)

So 20 would not be a drastic expansion of the colors. Rather, the current paired down offerings represents something of a change from before. Maybe BMW has reconsidered? Or maybe Leg's dealership is getting confused between the old E46 palette and the new E9X pallete.

Well, according to BMW Leeds and the printout they have given me from the BMW system (which I saw on screen) these colours are all available on the M3which Im quite surprised about.

No word on Individual interior colours but Richard Clarke at Scothall Leeds BMW reckons I can choose from any of these.

That's a heck of a list. Hope that its true that you can really order those colors. It would be nice to see some paint chips for those in the second two groups. Some are familiar, but many are not.

Amazing how they charge so much for what is a normal BMW color like say, Monaco Blue!!!!

I think I'd pass on these- the normal colors are fine BUT...........

I would pay for an Individual interior!

Santorini 2.... Hell Yeah. LSB without the hint of green. Strange how there's Dakar, PY and IR but no LSB at all. Most odd.

Jerez Black is enough for me, thanks... just offer Individual Rust Brown (or even Cinammon) Full Leather interior in the USA and we can call it a day...

Montego is an E92 colour, Silver Grey is E46 M3.

I wonder if they've offered so many colours because people were underwhelmed with the standard choices?

No Estoril Blue, either. That would be my choice.

Hey if you saw it directly on the computer screen of a BMW dealers computer I totally buy this as valid. Sure would like to see some of these really interesting sounding colors. More than that I sure would like the chance to be able to order these in the US.

You'll notice the first 6 colors or so you've listed are actual individual colors. The others you've listed are not. For the most part, these are recycled normal line colors. Any avid bmw enthusiast will recognize the vast majority of these colors as non-individual colors. Point and proof: imola red, carbon black, montego blue, monaco blue, midnight blue, stratus grey, silver grey, dakar yellow (from the e36), phoenix yellow, sepia, steel blue, techno violet (e36 again), etc etc etc. Most of us are quite familiar with these colors. They are not "individual" colors per se.

Montego Blue is my favorite... I wish you could get that for the E92 M3 as a standard color.

Draw your own conclusions, I have a print out that says they are available and a dealer saying I can order any of them. If I cant he is in for a shock cos if I do order one of these colours and he lets me down there will be hell to pay.

Leg, trust me, among all those colors, the color you really want is Phoenix Yellow. You don't even need to see it. Just order it. It's that good!
