New BMW Individual M Series Colors (pictures)

After my recent car crash, i went back to BMW to order and M3 as a 2010 model won't be delivered till may/june). anyways, the sales managed hands over a "BMW Individual M Series" box filled with exterior colors, leather samples and trims for 2010 M cars(only, M3, M5, M6 and M Z4)

he said those are color i have to pay extra for just not as much as the usual individual colors, plus in a few months from now they will become standard(like Frozen Grey)

i was shocked since that box hasn't been seen by most if not all staff yet. so here are the pics, didn't bother with wood trims cuz they were all boring, nothing sporty, and all are for M5 and M6:

(it was extremely difficult capturing those colors without the sun's exposure, so i hope they give you guys an idea)

i'm down to those colors:

Aventurive Silver Metallic, Frozen Grey and Alpine white(not pictured, like my previous M3). initially i wantted aventurine cuz it's like frozen grey with a shine and light, but they i decided i don't wanna take the risk, and ended sticking with Alpine White.

i pictured the below colors just to show you guys, i have no interest in them...

on the far right, that's actually a silver color that turns pink/rose very interesting, the color next to it it moonstone, then frozen grey, then aventurine silver and last pearl white.

for M Z4 and MZ4 Coupe (but again all those colors an be had on other cars)...don you guys feel two-tone interiors are out of fashion?

nice, but too luxyry for my taste, plus they're all for the M5 and M6

Although I think it is probably something closer to Interlagos than actual purple.

I'd love to see an Imola E9x M3. Please post pics when you get the car.

Very nice, I think that pearl white will come out well. I've been waiting for BMW to offer a nice pearl like Lexus.

Why can't we get those damn choices here in the US? I just don't get it? The demand exists, now where's the supply?

We can actually. The problem is finding a U.S. dealer who knows how to get an M3 under the Individual program. Most don't even know that it's possible. Of course you have to pay more: the paint is $5000 (over 30+ colors should be available) and the interior is supposedly $4100 (should be at least 4 upholstery colors available).
