Only one in this color. Reminds me Fux's Austin Yellow M2 back in 2016

"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."

I inquired about individual paint on the M2 CS and, if your paint selection is approved, the price is just about $25K. If you remember, there was an Austin Yellow M2 and a San Marino Blue M2 Competition and I believe the cost of individual paint for each was $24,480. 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).

I'd like to see this with black wheels instead, I'd think it would look even better.

Agree . . . this is begging for black wheels.

Yes, black wheels. But what it's really begging for is a third pedal!

$25k for a color is insane, but then again, that's about the going rate to change colors yourself anyways. Sign me up for a Rossa Corsa Red M2 CS!! Or Enzian blue. That's a dream come true for me since I contemplate wrapping my alpine white M2 either one of those two colors just about every week

VERY cool color!

I would not get it myself, but enjoy looking at it on someone else's ride.

As others have commented, black wheels would have been a really good option.

The M2CS suffers the same problem as the Competition. . . the fender-to-tire gaps are enormous and need to be addressed.

If BMW offers an Individual color choice for the M2 CS:
  • E30 M3: Henna Red (052), Cinnabar Red (138) or Brilliant Red (308)
  • E46 M3 CSL: Silver Grey metallic (A08)
  • F82 M4 GTS: Frozen Dark Gray Metallic (U83)
