Paint options- 650i color on an M3

Has anyone had experience ordering a paint color other than the standard choices? I am interested in ordering an M3 and would like to have the car painted Barbera red, which is available on the 650i. Does anyone know if BMW is willing to honor such a request?

A) I love that color, and I suspect an M3 would be gorgious with it.

B) For the right amount of money, yes I think BMW would paint the car that color.

I don't think that option is available for you to choose, if the color is not on the chart for M3 list you can't select that option.

not true, you can request it and see if they accept it, but it probably will cost you, i think $5000.

Recently there was a post from someone who ordered individual paint E90 M3 ( if I remember correctly) and got Barbera Red. Everything would be great, except that wasn't the color he ordered. Do the search...

babera red doesn't really suit the m3, imo.
