Definitely an eye turner! the only part I don't like is that the lower section of the side skirt is black, gives the illusion that the car is very skinny.

The last invoice published for individual paint on a comp was just shy of $25k. Gotta pay to play.

The problem with the black rocker panel decal is they always forget to add the body paint-matching M Performance aero blades/skirts underneath. When done properly w/ the painted M Performance aero skirts, it looks awesome. However, that takes drilling 11 holes under each side of the car to add them, and most people/dealers are too lazy to bother. Adding the colored skirts underneath makes the car look lower and aggressive, whereas going with the rocker panel decals alone makes the car look like it's floating on a shadow. Looks taller and less sporty that way.

This car also needs black or bi-color wheels to set it off.

It's close to perfection, but not quite there. This color looks great on the M2CS!

I think that color looks incredible on your GT4, but not a fan on the M2 CS.

I guess its possible. If you have money to burn why not. I know those are ferrari paint prices already.

If ferrari knew how much bmw is charging, they might charge now $100k for a special request paint.

AND yep, he paid a big premium for that but choose DCT and no Ceramics.

"When Steffen Krebs calls BMW Individual, a mixture of anticipation, curiosity and respect for the upcoming challenge should immediately turn on one or the other warning light. Because if one of his contacts in Garching is definitely known, then it is his almost insatiable thirst for maximum individuality and very special vehicles. In recent years we have been allowed to accompany him on several vehicle collections and reported on some unique items, including the unforgettable BMW 1 Series M Coupé in Java Green. The story of the Green Mamba is now being continued by a BMW M2 CS in Birch Green, which combines several special features.

The latest addition to Steffen Krebs's fleet is not just another example of the naturally rare BMW M2 CS, but actually the last one built for Europe. It is also the last BMW M2 of the F87 generation built for Europe, the last European BMW with a DKG gearbox and also the last vehicle with individual paintwork in Birch Green - because at least according to the current status, the paint is no longer produced by a single paint manufacturer in the world offered. The preparations for the painting in Birch Green and the fulfillment of other special requests at the BMW plant in Leipzig took a total of around 18 months.

The many small details that were able to be realized by BMW Individual Manufaktur go far beyond the normal level of individual paintwork. The side skirts painted exactly according to the ideas of Steffen Krebs catch the eye, with an upper part in Birch Green, a surface in high-gloss black and a red contour line. Carbon flaps from the M Performance range perfectly round off the individual look.

The red reference to the work of BMW Individual Manufaktur on the side skirts reminds you of the special features of this BMW M2 CS, which is unique in many ways, every time you get in. There is no question that the 450 hp compact sports car has a lot to offer regardless of the individualization implemented here - but aspects such as the design of the carbon bonnet or the golden light alloy wheels develop a completely different effect in conjunction with the Birch Green paintwork."

So this is the very last F87 M2 produced for EU Market ?! Thats the reason !

It's a lovely colour. But if it was a standard option I would still choose misano blue. Therefore I just saved $25k. This car is a bargain.

I think this statement is total BS (not your comment, they original statement ). Any color can be replicated with the paint code, they are all mixed to spec anyways. You can even do it without the paint code, which is what any reputable body shop would do. As they have a scan tool to do color matching. While the car is exclusive, any paint color can be produced.

Not sure I'd pick that color myself, and I definitely wouldn't pay $25k for it...

...but I am damn glad someone did! Pretty cool.
