You might be able to go through BMW Individual and get that color. I think custom colors like that cost around $2500 from BMW if Im not mistaken.

After researching the topic today - I learned that TOPAZ is a discontinued BMW color and cannot be gotten, according to BMW san diego - alas

isn't BMW individual only currently available in Europe?

You have to contact BMW NA and also find a dealership that is will to place a BMW individual order. You can still get Topaz Blue. You can still get Avus Blue if you wanted. Both are discontinued but BMW will paint the car for you for a certain price.

Even if the X3 is built by the 3rd party in Austria, not in a BMW factory? The third party aspect seems like it would add a whole additional layer of complexity to the one-off paint job.
