Dravit Gray is no longer offered on the BMWUSA.com website. We tried to order it just this week and the dealer confirmed it is not available.

I am still seeing Dravit on the USA configurator but with a disclaimer about the extended build time. Here is the link:

Thanks! I do still have the S2k and love it! She is far from stock now but still a lot of fun.

It's awesome that you track your S2000... I bet it's a lot of fun on the track!

I can too - it's not a matter of seeing it on the website - it's that most (if not all dealers) will tell you it can't be ordered any longer on a 2020 :-)

ps- I know others can't see it on the website but I think the main issue at hand is that if you want either of the "individual colors" you'll be waiting for a 2021 (production begins in June)

I see. I ordered a TZB2 in November and it took an additional 40 days on top of the typical schedule.
Wasn't sure if it was the holidays interrupting the production or anything else.
I after a month I was told the color was the reason for the delay.

Yup for sure and I'm sure that's why we can't order the colors now - you figure the extended time for the color on top of a factory order - and they (BMW) would be right up against the 2021's rolling off the assembly line. Oh well I wait and congrats on your car!

Not sure if you like Mediterranean Blue Metallic (color code C10) but looks like that is an available color on the 2021 330e. I wonder if that blue will transfer to the others in the lineup for 2021?? Looks very similar to Tanz Blue and may save you some $$ if it's a standard color.

They have in the past never let you order mediterranean blue on m-sport trim on some cars for some reason (you can't get a z4 in it either). I really like that color and would have preferred it on my F30 to estoril blue honestly

The weird thing is the m550i you can order it.

I'm pretty glad my tanzanite car is already on a boat and I didn't wait... I have this feeling they are shutting down american orders for europe just in general and mexico isn't setup for individual paint runs yet.

I read here that the M340 xdrive for North America will continue to come out of Europe. Sooo hopefully that'll help my order a bit in that i will indeed be going with an xdrive

I should have said for a "normal" 330i xDrive it was no longer on the website. It is available as a special order and added cost with the M-Package.

I plan to get Dravit Grey but still considering TB. I could change my mind if I could get a frozen grey (or other frozen options). Does anyone have experience with ordering a paint not on the selector? My guy said Iíd have to get the blue/white interior which I fail to understand why. If my car is going to be built in Germany anyway why canít I get any paint if Iím willing to wait?

Would love to hear if anyone has experience with this.
