Cool First Look at BMW Individual Frozen Dark Blue, Lipstick, Chestnut Brown, Byzanz Metal

I wanted to take a little time to write a little about the dealership Iíve been getting my rental cars from, because it is far from a regular BMW dealership. I picked this Sixt station because it wasnít far from where I worked and had flexible hours. It turns out to be one of the biggest dealership in Munich.

This is what you are greeted with the first time I walked through:




To the right is where there are all sorts of Individual 3 Series:




Love this wagon. Something youíll never see in the US unfortunately:



Walk past that and you have showroom just for M cars.
The mighty 1M:


A Java Green E93 M3. Talk about bright!





Hereís easily the weirdest color Iíve ever seen. From the outside of the dealership, it looked like a Fire Orange M3. I knew it wasnít as soon as I saw it inside. The color is called Lipstick, which to me was a mix of orange and pink. Yes, pink.






Head downstairs and they have a whole floor dedicated to Individual cars, sales and service.
Hereís one combo youíll almost never see anywhere. A 535d GT in Monte Carlo Blue!



This wagon was perfect. I did end up renting a 530d Touring and it was an amazing experience. More on that later.




A 650i:



An Avus Blue E93!!! This is an absolutely gorgeous color for this car. There were some awesome colors back in the E36 days!





This color is called Frozen Dark Blue if I remember correctly. This is the first time Iíve seen one of BMWís matte colors. It even feels rough to the touch

Another E93 in Byzanz Metallic:



At that point, I was already late to pick up my car. They had a whole other sections for X cars, 1ers and 5/6ers. I came back a week after, and this is what they had on display at the lobby. Looks even meaner in real life. This world would be a better place with a hardtop Z4 I tell ya.




The next write-up will be about my first time at the Nurburgring. Many wrecks ensue (not me thankfully!).

I think I like the frozen blue much more than the grey and black.

The Blue actually looks good. Man I wish they would bring the 535D over to the US, especially if they let ///M play with the suspension.

I really like the frozen blue. I also like the option of a "d" E93! Why won't they bring these cars to NA?!? Sigh.

Looks like I should head to some of these German dealers before I buy an individual car. Good thing I won't have to worry about that for another 5 years or so lol.

Speaking of odd combinations. Did you happen to see a 3 series hardtop vert with diesel and/or awd? E.g. E93 328/330/335 with d, xi, or even better xd?

I was shocked when I saw it, I had no idea what color it was until I read the description. Really amazing to see a MINT Avus blue car, it's so shinny in bright light.

Actually, that Avus Blue was a 330d E93. I had chance to rent an F11 530xd and it sounded fantastic. Diesels have come such a long way.
