That's a really cool promo. If I was in the market, I'd go frozen black or frozen dark grey.

Does anybody know the history or reason behind why BMW Individual paints and Porsche Paint to Sample use so many of the same colors/names?

I think it's because they are taking paint from other manufacturers for some. Like Rosso Corsa which is a Ferrari paint.

Didn't somebody have a BMW in nardo grey, an Audi paint?

As an M2C owner with no option to get any individual paint, paid or otherwise, I would also like to fart in the general direction of anyone who gets this freebie.

With the pricing on the M8 - just about every other option (paint choice, interior set up + trim, wheels, Bower and Wilkins, Driver Assist) should be "no cost"

Anyone know the answer?

Interesting.

I think this is an awesome no charge option on the GC. Would be even more excited if this becomes a trend on new models.
Is it possible they were being sarcastic?

Sepang Bronze was absolutely gorgeous on the E60 M5, I would love to see it on the M8 GC.

It only applies to GC which have only started to arrive. I suppose if you configured an early build you would be unhappy.
