F10 Individual Program?

Does anyone know when or if the Individual program will be available for the F10 5 series? Thanks.

I am not very knowledgable about this but I think I understand that Individual, as practiced in the U.S., is an illusion. It really consists of a couple of special expensive paint jobs and appearance tweaks, when available. It does not mean you get the European check-the-box access to all accessories.

As others have reported in both these forums and the E90 forums, you can get BMW to give you a non-standard paint color. But it costs something like $5000. So if you have the $$$$ you can get something "individual". Someone posted pics of their E93 335i in Ruby Black. It looks awesome, but not worth it to me.

Not true, the US customers have the same exact ordering options as Europeans do with respect to BMW Individual colors and trims. Please see our interview with BMWNA M Manager regarding the ordering process for Individual options for more details.

The interview can be read at http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=519967

I wanted to get Cohiba Brown Merino leather for my F10, which is a BMW Individual option (at least on the BMW UK website). My CA told me that I could not get this at all.

Previously, I did ask about getting Mineral White Metallic for the exterior paint, and was told it would be $5300. I passed on this...

Bump for any updates on BMW Individual for the US... I have been asking various dealers with no luck so far.

Jason...do you know of any US dealer that is willing to work with paying customers (LOL) to order BMW individual for a new 550xi M-Sport?
