Priority 1 options for the new M3?

Some of you might be famliar with Priority 1 options such as Lemon interior on the e90 and I believe Jade interior on the e92. Essentially, these are "hidden" options not found in the product brochure, but nonetheless available to in-the-know purchasers, having their cars built to spec and shipped to them.

For those of you in the EU who have either already received your new M3's or who have had serious interactoins with your dealers there... are there any indications as to whether the e92 M3 will also have priority 1 options?

Your feedback would be appreciated.

When I went through my brief "mmm... 550" phase last year the priority 1 options were ventilated seats and alcantara headliner.... good times...

Seems like it might be a bit earlier for this info to surface just yet. But of course I hope I am wrong.

Lemon on the E90 is visible on the online configurator, so I'm not sure if there is such a thing as 'priority 1' here in the UK.

In the UK you guys get lemon but as the OP stated we have to priority 1 order it, dealer cant order and let it sit on his lot. Id be curious to know what there was for the m3, was keto serious about alcantara headliner? thatd be great, love that material.

I think maybe he meant anthracite? I believe there does exist an alcantra headliner for the M5, but not for the 550 (which is what he was refering to). Anthracite would just be the dark color headliner which is also welcome. For example, in the US for the regular 3-series there is no headliner color option. They are all gray which does not look so good. Of course, alcantra would be good too.

I thought all Priority 1 options were limited to European, Australian, and South African markets.

Nope, I know for certain you can get ventilated seats on your 5 in the US.
