Actually like the color, but not with the gold wheels. The GT4 with black wheels shows it how it should be.

Can't imagine how much attention that car will get on the street.

When you spend 150k on a 2 series. Woof.

And Fux's car was actually listed at McLaren Boston a few weeks ago. AY looks horrendous on an M2. IDK why these folks keep wanting off piss colored M2's.

There is nothing wrong with Dakar or Speed Yellow.

That paint color certainly "highlights" the M2's curves....

So if this paint is no longer manufactured anywhere in the world, how would you get your bumper touched up? Or a repair after an accident?

Are the owner of this M2, and other Birch Green Individual cars, SOL?

Itís a joyful colour that makes the car unique. But itís too fast and furious for me. Or Iím just too old for it 😁

Porsche still has Birch Green(now renamed Light Green) as an approved color for PTS 2021 GT4's for those willing to pay 13k for it. So not sure where this comment comes from.

Not my cup of tea, but very cool for the owner.

That's super cool BMW allows this, and even cooler for the owner. $25k for custom color is egregious at best. You could get similar results with a $1500 wrap. But I digress

The cost is astronomical because they need to take the car from Leipzig (no individual paint capabilities) to Munich. In Munich, the car needs to be disassembled, painted, reassembled and shipped back to Leipzig. I would have liked Imola Red, but at 25k it was an easy pass. In fact, when Porsche jumped up their PTS price from $5500 all the way to $13k, that pill was already difficult to swallow (and I doubt I'd swallow it again, especially with the typically poor PTS paint jobs, but that's a different topic).
Dude...you paid $13K for a special color?
You HAVE to share pics of the car.

This color looks atrocious on the M4 and M8. That may due to the amount of surface on those two models. But the color on this M2 is absolutely money.

Too much color clashing... for something that loud, shoulda been black or silver wheels and at least the oem blue for brakes... but eh each their own.

Very nice, not sure about the combo with the gold wheels tho. I think black would have looked the bomb as a contrast to the colour. Or maybe push it and get carbon wheels, that would look epic. Nonetheless, very beautiful and bold colour. Cheers

What a beautiful M2. I love the energy the car is giving off. Maybe I should wrap my e92 in that instead of midnight green...

I want to hate this but...I like it. But I think I'd rather ogle it from afar than drive it everyday. Also I feel like being in close proximity without spf might give you melanoma
