I have a couple of friends who in 2016 wanted to order both of their M2s in Sunset Orange Metallic. Even though the M2 is built in the same factory in Leipzig as the 2 Series, which is available in Sunset Orange Metallic, they could not get it in that color. These are long-time BMW people who have ordered Individual BMWs, including Ms, in the past. They were told that even though BMW sprayed 2 Series in that color in the same factory, that they weren't equipped for Individual orders. This is still the case.

Don't hold your breath for an Individual M2. M2s also sell like hotcakes, so there's no incentive to offer Individual paint.

Hi Guys, for those, who are still interested in individual color, it is available, at least in Europe (not sure bout US). I am preparing to buy one and talked to BMW rep who confirmed LSB color for 4,300$ (7 month waiting time).

Also worth to see the link: https://suchen.mobile.de/fahrzeuge/d...e-c073f28a88e4

Congrats if you were actually able to order LSB.Looking forward to seeing an M2 in that color.For that price they will definitely paint the car in the Leipzig plant which is surprising because earlier info said that the plant wouldn’t be able to offer individual paint until next year.

I hope for you that you're right and manage to get Individual, but it's far from evident. Numerous before you asked, some even offered quite some cash, but quickly understood that Individual at the Leipzig factory is not quite for mere mortals. Only very-very exceptional. But if you're no particular VIP customer for BMW, maybe your news suggests that BMW has made changes to implement Individual at the Leipzig factory in the future ?

Only M2C one-offs I know about (and let's forget for a moment that, uh, Futura 2000 M2C): see the dedicated threads: here and here.

The ad (see here) says: "Individual Lackierung ab Werk in Frozen Dark Grey Metallic" (= "Individual paint from factory in Frozen Dark Grey Metallic").

Also very few BMW 1M got Individual (also built at Leipzig factory).
