Talking Individual E92 M3 - Azurite Black/Rust Brown

After months of waiting and (literally) years of planning, I finally took delivery of my Individual E92 M3 at the BMW Welt earlier this week!

I'm still traveling, so for now just a few brief words and a couple of pictures. I'd like to give a BIG thanks to David Aviles at Northwest BMW, he hooked it up and was very patient with all of my questions during the last few months.

On European Delivery:

Brevity is difficult here...if you get a chance to do an ED, don't think twice--go for it! The Welt, Factory and Museum are all incredible. And the delivery itself was extremely special. Every enthusiast should have this experience at least once!

On the car:

What can I say? It's even better than I could have imagined. Unfortunately I took delivery at the worst time of year, so the Welt and Munich in general were completely covered in snow. Spirited driving will have to wait until I take re-delivery at the Performance Center in a few weeks. The wait is already killing me.

On the Individual options:

Azurite Black is absolutely stunning in person. From afar it looks black in low light and a deep blue under bright light...but get up close and it shimmers aquamarine, navy, royal blue, purple, etc. Pictures don't do it much justice. And the Rust Brown/Piano Black combo is, well...exquisite.









A few more...

Very nice indeed!! Your photos really make the interior look orange though I know it does not look like that in person. Congrats on a beautiful car!

Thanks! Yeah, it's kind of hard to get the true color of Rust brown to show in photos. It may have something to do with the lighting...I took delivery in the evening so all the lighting is artificial. It's actually a darker/richer color than I was expecting. The pics are a pretty decent representation of what it looks like in those lighting conditions.
