BMW special order form

I am working with a local dealer on the details of ordering a 650 coupe once the new version of Idrive is available in the 6er. I have decided on Imola red/Ivory white/fine line oak/LEDs/M sport/Exec Pkg/20" 373's.

And we now know they switched the trim on the M sport Pkg from '12 to '13. Where chrome was standard last year, shadowline is standard this year. I want chrome. Dealer did not seem aware of special order form/process. I know several members here have written previously of a special order form for items like this. Is there a name or form number for the special order process I can refer to?

Thanks.

Just FYI, I ordered the individual package on the gran coupe which comes with shadowline standard and it doesn't seem like they are going to let me get chrome instead. My dealer has already called a couple different people at bmw, some are saying it can be done and others are saying it can't, I haven't got final word yet but it seems like it's not going to happen.

Do we know when this is? I'm ready to order, but wondering if it's close enough I should wait.

Our 2013 640i GC is Carbon Black which requires M Sport Package. M Sport Package came with Chrome Trim. Then I ordered individual leather, Amaro and Black.

This is how you would get to Chrome and Individual on a Gran Coupe.

I wanted Shadowline, go figure. So color of car determines M Sport Package or Individual Package which determines Shadowline vs. Chrome.

Latest I can find is March for the 6 series. No dealer will confirm, but best info out there.
