2017 Individual M3 finally got real...

My custom alcantara ///M Performance shift knob [with IND"s tri-color stitching modification] is finished, and it's the last piece of my interior modification puzzle. I previously installed the non-electronic ///M Performance alcantara steering wheel, e-brake/boot and armrest. IND did a great job modifying the knob for me. It went from this:

Have you actually asked your Military dealer why they cannot place Individual orders? The only thing that I can think of is that BMWAG found out that Military/Diplomatic sales overseas used to place Individual orders and most were not actually delivered. I mean, an Individual order is no big deal if you have abundant patience. If you are time-limited then Individual is not for you.

^^
I missed this.

I called every BMW-MS outlet and expressed my intent and desire. Two followed up with BMW-AG with no success.

I think attitudes are changing about the discounts offered to this demographic. I suspect things won't get better. Also Porsche stopped altogether.

BTW those pics are sweet! Is that mural in Europe or the States?

You can visit the M Studio at Garching and ask them directly about an Individual order.

My M3 was redelivered stateside at the end of December. Photos are taken at the Miami Art District in South Florida.

This is your actual car in production, correct? If so, how did you get a picture of it from the factory floor 3 weeks before ED...friends in the right places? Drool-worthy color combo with Atlantis.

Long story not-so-short:

- final approval of my Individual configuration was back in July 2016.
- production scheduled for week 43 (October 30th) + 2 weeks at Individual in Garching for custom fittings
- ED was scheduled for November 23th
- received VIN by week 40 (October 9th)
- ran received VIN on bimmer.work VIN decoder to confirm my Individual order
- VIN decoder shows the full Individual work order in factory detail: dash was to be built with a Golden Brown stripe like the "hockey stick" in the Silverstone Full Leather version. Golden Brown Individual Full Leather has the complete bottom half of the dash in GB. I requested only the glovebox and the "wing" that connects the center console to the dash in GB.
- I freaked out and started sending emails to BMWNA and Individual in Germany with what the VIN showed to ask if what I was seeing in this VIN Decoder was correct.
- Individual sent me that photo from Garching to confirm that dash was correctly configured
- Incidentally, they also fixed what the VIN decoder was showing about the dash description at the same time

Once you request an Individual Manufaktur order you start seeing a lot of people "CC" in the emails from the back and forth communication for months. The direct Individual email for Garching is posted on www.bmw.de as well, so they will answer if you send an email especially if there is unusual production issue like this. They sent the photo quick because this was really confusing very close to delivery.

They pretty much know each customer that request their work as they are a very small and tight team.
