e92 M3 Individual color availability

Hi guys

I'm currently wondering if Aventurine Silver Metallic is able to be ordered for the M3?
I know Estoril blue is a no-go right?

Are there any other nice colours?

Yes, it looks like Aventurine Silver is available. This list is from over a year ago, but might still be valid: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...53#post1400553


Estoril Blue is a no-go. An interesting replacement is Monte Carlo Blue, a new color introduced for the X5 M and X6 M (check the press pictures of the X5 M).
Though I doubt BMW allows that color on other cars for some time.


Best regards, south

In my opinion Aventurine looks very nice, but I would love to see pictures of it on some 3 series coupe. Do you know of any such photos, South?

Thanks

Unfortunately not, you could only check out the German configurator. This links directly to the color choices: http://www.bmw.de/de/de/newvehicles/...figurator.html

Not all Individual colors are listed though.


Best regards, south

Carbon black is the predecessor of Jerez Black. Black with a purplish hue.
