Is this not the green that was on the '1 of 8' version they released (the one with yellow headlights)?

Stunning vehicle, and a beautiful shade of green, need more of it in the car industry.

I like the M8, but the size against the available internal space wouldn't work for me, whereas the M4 is more practical and come to that, so is the M2.

Not usually a fan of green unless it's British racing green. And even then it only works on certain cars. But I like this. I like this a lot.

Hmmm, being a huge green BMW fan, I'm perplexed on this particular Malachite.

The Malachite I know is my favorite BMW color (next to Aegean Blue).

This is what I think of when I hear Malachite Green:
https://www.m5board.com/threads/indi...s.76172/page-2

And here's an actual color reference from BMW:


So there's no way the photography is murdering the color accuracy of these M8 shots that bad, so it must be a newer Malachite green that BMW has released in the last few years? Or the one I like is the 'dark' and the one on the M8 is the light version? Does anybody have the paint code for this individual M8? Man I was talking with my dealer about getting an individual M4 in Malachite, and I would have freaked out if it arrived in that M8's shade of green instead of the one above.

Here's some video of this 'new' Malachite green on an F90 M5:
https://youtu.be/kMJ8pGcNcYU

p.s. I messaged Shmee150 (Tim) on his new M8 Competition in Oxford Green trying to figure out if he got Oxford (1) 324, or Oxford (II) 430... he sadly didn't respond

There are two malachite green colors. One is called malachite green metallic and the other malachite green dark metallic. Two different paint codes. It's explained in another thread, but I'm too lazy to link it.
