In those pictures in look pretty bad, but the dealer here has the same color (non vert) with black interior and it looks pretty good. Maybe it's just the pics???

Terrible. The owner of this car is going to take a major $ hit to unload it.

What's the name of that color?? I can't believe BMW Individual even has that color in their selections, what model have they ever offered that on? Or do they let you specify a completely custom color? Given that it costs $5K just to get an Individual color or a standard BMW color that isn't offered on the model you're ordering, I can't even imagine what it'd cost to get a totally custom color.... and I sure as hell wouldn't get THAT!

UPDATE: Apparently it's possibly Power Green Metallic, as seen in this 1er (though this one looks lighter): http://www.bmwblog.com/2010/04/09/po...mw-120i-coupe/

I'd drive that if I had a house in Hawaii.... A big, ostentatious house, that is.

That's never directly comparable. If you compare car prices between here and the UK they usually pay the same number of pounds that we pay in dollars, or maybe a bit less but certainly not the straight exchange rate. That's true of a lot of consumer electronics as well. Hopefully that's partially offset by getting paid more for the same job, but otherwise maybe that's why expensive cars are a lot less common in the UK.

Born and raised in the UK here, consumer electronics can be had considerably cheaper thanks to a booming European grey market and cut-throat competition on the High Street. In terms of getting paid more for the same job, highly debatable and we'll leave that discussion for another day Lastly, I've actually noticed expensive cars being considerably more commonplace there than in North America.
