How can I find out how many LSB M3's are out there?

Hi guys, I was thinking about this and I would really like to know how many LSB E92 M3's are out there. Who can I call to find this info? I tried BMW NA but they said they can't help me. Any ideas?

Good luck. I know that they have not even released total production numbers for the M3s yet since they are still in production. I have a Sparkling Graphite E90 which was only produced in 08 and I've always wondered how many exist considering the total production of sedans was far less than coupes and the color only around for 1 year. I'm sure someday we will get a production count but don't hold your breath for color.

For E92 M3's the current count is as follows (to my current intel):

1 in Maryland
2 in LA (A possible 3rd one might be on it's way very soon )
1 in Puerto Rico
1 in the UK
2 in Florida (one is an E90)
2 in New York (on is an E90 that splits time between NY & NJ)
1 in Russia (E90)

Is that the same as Sparkling graphite metallic? I think that's what came in 08 only if I remember

Hey, I had the only DAKAR one in LA, until someone else ordered one.

Also, it would be nice if you could briing out on one of our RUNS so I could see it.

I know, need to get out!

I've seen a couple of different Dakars in LA, but who knows if they are factory paint or not....I love seeing LSB 5 series tooling around.

This is the first time I have ever seen a LSB E92. That's an amazing color.

I heard Imola Red is now available as an individual color. I'd really like to know if any of those are out there. It's my favorite M color every IMO. I had it on my E46 ZHP.
