The CA I've used always seems more than happy to order any other color I've suggested for a $5,000 premium. Maybe some dealerships are easier to work with when plied with cash!

Considering going from 335i to 135i

This is all great feedback, thanks! One thing I'm concerned about is that it only has 6,000 on it. Should I be worried this this might be a track-used car?
