Hmmm, this one is a head scratcher. BMW decided to classify it as a Special Order color. Is it a borrowed color, like the Nardo and Suzuka Grey?
So it is, post deleted

As others have mentioned Dakar II is not only clear coat based where original Dakar was not- original Dakar was a lead based paint...

Its my favorite color but I'm biased....

https://www.bmw.com/en/all-models/m-...bmw-m4-cs.html

If you go to the bottom, there's a mini configurator and you can see Lime Rock Grey is one of the choices. The M4 CS is a special order model I think, so maybe that's it? It's definitely not a borrowed color or anything like that, it's unique to BMW.

I don't know if it's because its in en e46 M3 but. That Interlagos blue is just gorgeous. And that e46 M3 is even more beautiful. It really shows that BMW had its pinnacle a few years ago. I hope they get back to those days.

But the real issue is whether to pronounce it "her-rez" or "her-reth."

The MotoGP commentators can never seem to agree whether to use the Castilian "lisp."

I don't even know why I am wasting my time Techno Violet and Bright Red are not M colors
