Red face Jarez Black?

Is anyone aware of an issue with Jarez black finish? We had an M3Cv in Jarez black on order for 6 weeks with no progress, even after missing two production slots, it even went into status 150, meaning no production date at one point. Changed toMineral White and voila! it's on the line...Dealer thought it was because of a shortage of the paint pigment, which apparently comes from Japan. I checked with a buddy that has a body shop and he told me the ALL black paints have jumped thru the roof cost wise... Anyone?

I've had mine on order since mid-March and it went into production this week which was expected since my ED is on July 5. Didn't hear anything from my CA or BMW about any issues.

It could be... BMW also have supply issues with the Navigation system parts as well due to the Japan disaster.

And it is Jerez Black, not Jarez.
