BMW M Brand Manager Matt Russell on the availability of Individual options in the USA (see full interview here)

Quote:
Is it more difficult to have BMW Individual paints or trims ordered in the US, compared to Europe?
Can you please explain the proper ordering process?
Are there any limitations?


All BMW Individual options available to European markets are available to North American customers. Ordering is available through every one of BMW's dealers. There's an order form dealers can put together for customers interested in having Individual work done. The dealers submit that order form old fashioned style (via fax) or they can scan and e-mail it to BMWNA's automotive sales department where there is a contact who receives individual requests and special orders all day long. That contact has a bridge directly to Germany and she'll find out how long it'll take to do whatever the customer is requesting, and she'll reply to the dealer with the timeframe and the price. If the customer is satisfied with the response, they can then go ahead and order the car. Individual is most popular on the 7-series and the M3 and is growing in popularity.

Just make sure your dealer knows about the special order form. If they don't have it or don't know about it, it's available via a quick e-mail to the BMWNA automotive sales department, which every dealer knows how to get in touch with.

The only limitation is what can the factory actually do. For example, Leipzig is not able to do Individual orders yet, but this may change some day in the future (so models produced there, such as the 1M coupe are not able to be ordered currently with Individual colors or options).

Also have a look at H2's post for the current list of Individual colors, courtesy of BMW UK: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...27#post6693727

Thank you so much for this thread. Do we just post our own pics, or do we have to send it to a mod?

Great idea!

Is there a difference between "Individual" colours, and "custom" colours? I believe the Individual colours are a fairly limited number of colours from which you can choose, if you live in an area that can avail of them??

Just my OCD tendencies coming out... pedantics, for sure, but is there a distinction? For example - Laguna Seca and Dakar Yellow - are they truly "Individual" colours, or simply colours that were custom ordered?

On the inside of the engine bay, check the tag that names the color. If it says "BMW- Individual" I think it counts!

Every color that's not a standard color for a specific series is considered being an Individual color. The reason behind is that the Individual GmbH is responsible for that business. Though there are different types of Individual colors: Some are "standard" colors offered from Individual (like Azurite Black or Moonstone), some are colors that are available because they were used in a former series (like Dakar Yellow) which are more expensive and, lastly, some are real custom colors (most expensive).

So, even strictly speaking, all of these are Individual colors.


Best regards,
south

Titanium Silver

I've got a 2009 M3 coupe in Titanium Silver. If someone could take a descent picture of it for me perhaps next to a Silverstone II, i'd appreciate it. I'll be in San Clemente starting July 2nd.

P.S. It says BMW Individual under the hood , but BMW considers it a "special order paint"
