This is true in general, however, as this thread proves, you can get a custom color on an M3 if you know the right people.

Yeah, it's difficult to judge from that particular picture, but I think LSB could look really, really good on the E9X.

You can order the individual package outside of america. With that you can get any custom color with any series, not just 6 or 7. But people rarely go for an "individual' since they are rediculously expensive. But then again, I did play the power ball this week. So if the number gods are kind to me, expect to see a pearl white M3 with a Burberry plaid interior. I'd throw in 24K platinum rims and daimond coated switches. Don't blame me, I'm just trying to fit in. As clearly stated by rich arabs with their golden rolls royces, "If you are rich, you gotta lack tast".

LSB 997 TT

This guy had a genuine part from a BMW LSB e46m3 sent to the Porsche Factory to Paint match ...... and for a healthy fee .... they built him an LSB 997 TT.

Dealbreaker: its a slushbox

its @ South Bay BMW's used lot, got 10k miles and they are asking a ridiculous $125k

That is either a messed up shot or it simply isn't matched to LSB at all!

Porsche has a color very similar to LSB (the name is escaping me right now) so unless you saw the sticker and it was a paint to sample I'm not sure I would believe that.

edit: Color of that car is Oslo Blue, not LSB

I had a post a few months back with actual photos of the Dakar yellow e92 m3 @ bmw of peabody....it was there when i picked up my AW...i wasnt doing backflips over it....i heard through the grapevine they have a ruby blk e92 coming in ....that ill be curious to see.

the blues yellows reds purples are the way to go if your gonna spend 5,000+..dont drop 5000 on a special shade of silver....people wont be able to tell the diff...however if you roll up to a stoplight in a frigan est blue m3 people are gonna say holy sh$t. ....just my opinion

I agree.

On the same note, Will, do you have any insight into weather or not Estoril really has been killed by BMW?

It just doesnt seem right to me that a color which originated in the 90's is now somehow unsafe... Does this mean you cant get estoril blue touch up paint or anything else if you happen to own a car of that color? Doesnt make sense.

Im planning on ordering an M3 sometime around January-March and if I know Estoril is a possibility I will pay the $5,000 for the color and wait as long as I need to. Please tell me its possible.....

I did check on Estoril and they will not paint an M3 that color unfortunately. They never specifically specified why.

Think again pal. That's 6speed user sie_motor88's old car. It's Porsche paint to sample Oslo blue.

His old fleabay listing.

I was told by my dealer about a year ago that BMW would do custom paint for $3,000 on a 3-series. He mentioned even then that most dealers don't want to deal with the paperwork, or have never done it, and just tell their salesmen that it's not possible. Not to be a jerk, but I'd be interested in seeing the build sheet on that car to see that custom paint costs $5K and not the $3K that I was quoted.

That is a bit jerkish. I assure you the customer has seen the build sheet. With the reputation I have around here - the last thing I'm going to do is let this big thread turn into "will@longbeachbmw lied to me about the paint pricing".

I originally even ordered this car for the dealership, until an E90 Poster snatched it up before I could get it here.
