Interesting, if I were looking at a GC I'd take them up on this n/c offer. What exactly do they mean by double coat? Double base and double clear? I have noticed the paint is a bit thin and can easily chip.

^bump
Anyone know the answer?

Wow. That's a great offer. Too bad it wasn't available for my M8 vert order.

No doubt. Really wanted Verde Ermes and sacrificing my Fiona Red/Black interior for Tartufo/Black but the $5K quoted killed the desire completely.

Wow so many of those I've never heard of let alone seen? Cumbrian green?!

I checked for the up coming Isle of Man green but not there.

Awesome treat for anyone ordering an M8GC.

Well, my guess is sales aren't as good as they've forecasted.

Really? Some of you guys looking at 150k on an M8 were put off for another 5k to go individual?

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.

I think this is why the current color palette on a lot of current models is very limited. It may just serve to give one the impetus to delve into the BMW Individual options.
