You could theoretically order this color (as well as really any other Individual colr) too if you have good contacts and BMWNA likes you. It would cost you thousands of dollars, but I'm pretty sure it's possible.

My Ride: E46 M3 & E46 323i
While I like the F30 better than the E90, I just can't get into this whole "sharp lines" thing thats been going on for a few years now with many brands. I saw a white F30 at the beach the other day and just thought..."meh". But I snapped my neck to spot another modded E46 that was passing by. Maybe I just need to see one all "done up" to get into it.

...and PY looks horrible on a stock 3 series. They might be able to pull it off on the new M3, but I'm skeptical.

Wow, those hood gap lines look terrible.

Imagine it in one of the BMW bright blue colors

F30's are too big IMO, my friend has one and I carpool with him, the interior is tiny compared to the exterior.

That doesn't look like Phoenix Yellow, do you have a photo of the build sheet?

I don't have the build sheet but I know 100% for sure it's Phoenix Yellow. I looked at the specs. I'll probably be over at the dealership in the near future and will get more pics of the crazy cars they have in their Individual showroom.

I like PY because I really don't see that color around where I live. Depending on the car I think PY can work. The F30 looks good in PY but I still don't care too much for the increased size and hoodlines of the F30.....it is a major improvement over the E90 series though, I agree with that...
