I am hoping maybe since they aren't offering the "edition" M3s here they will at least add a color or two for 2010 (but they didn't on the M5 or M6). of course if they do they will probably not offer it on the E90 just the E92 (for those wondering I would love to get a E92 but my 6 month old son makes that a little tough, try getting a car seat into the back of a coupe! )

you can get custom colors as some people of the forums have done. i've seen two who have got brilliant white (metallic) and one with dakar yellow. according to a post i read there are 5 m3's per build cycle scheduled to be custom painted. also, the price was close to $5k USD for the custom paint.

right $5K,

I mean does it really cost BMW $5,000 more to use that paint? If they just threw a few more special colors into the basic colors and charged $1500 ($950 more than the other metallic paints) they could make easy $$$. Heck the regular 3 series has like 17 color choices now

oh and how about Oyster leather, LeMans Blue with Oyster leather, hell yeah (Z4 and X6 have it)

+1

$5K is clearly not logical to get one of those unique/special exterior colors. BMW should know better than that.
