Hello NZ_BMW!

Beautiful car. I would like to see more of the interior, for the items on your "individual" list. I recently sold an Individual Touring, but the only item it had was a custom color, Mojavebraun paint. I think a write-up with photos on your Individual, Japan-issue BMW would be great. Please don't be shy, we don't see many Individuals in the US.

Thanks and regards,
