So the answer is yes it was residualized. I had thought about wrapping it too, but the price of that would've been practically the same as the residualized price of the individual paint color($4500 MSRP) and I would've had to pay the cost of the wrap in one shot. Also, the paint is just so much better than a wrap anyway..in my opinion

I had seen an M4 on the forum in twilight purple and fell in love with it, I wound up placing my order in mid October, and just took delivery today.

Here's a few pics my lease broker who's a good friend of mine took today when it was dropped off.

A few more exterior mods to come when I get to drop off the car at oneighty, and I'll update my original post with it.

The color is absolutely stunning and beautiful in person and it pops in the sunlight perfectly. The front of the car with the color looks super aggressive and I love the way the color looks at all angles..very excited to be part of the G20 community.[IMG][/IMG]
Congratulations on the car!!!

How much more comfortable is the M340 over the F80?

I'm on 18's and Continental DWS 06

Gorgeous. Makes it look so much better than those "earthy" colors they have on the standard pallet

What mods with the leds did you code on your g20? I want to get the amber headlight blinker to stay on as a DRL with the led DRL's

Thanks for the mostly positive feedback everyone..I know the color isn't for everyone and that's completely fine and it's not meant to be everyone's style, which is the whole point of the individual process in my opinion. Would've never thought it'd make it to the front page but, I'll be updating with more pictures soon once I get my car back.

Yeah the car wound up being just under $73K MSRP after the paint, as I also ordered every option besides the cooled tires. I know it was hovering around M3 pricing, however I couldn't have waited for the next gen and from the pics not sure how big of a fan I would've been of it.

Just as I thought. Just wish BMW would stop this "over sizing" fetish. Anyway's, if you're going to do individual, you did it the right way. Good luck & enjoy the ride

Hope you donít mind a little respectful criticism from a fellow purple car aficionado. I think purple is great when itís more dark and muted, and waits till the sun hits it just so to flash its brilliance.

Your pics seem to show the car as just being excessively bright from all angles, in some cases even looking somewhat like a candy color. Thatís the part i didnít like. Although i suppose it could look somewhat different in person.

Anyway, congrats on the car. Itís always gratifying when you take delivery of something unique and built to your spec.

That's completely fine! You're right, these pics were taken by a photographer at the leasing company before I even picked it up..so I'm sure it's making it look a lot more candy purple like you said in the light. When it's not so light it looks more of a dark purple..I'll definitely post up more and better shots eventually.

All criticism is welcomed, there's a few posts on here of people who just don't like it and that's completely okay with me. Thank you though for the comments, i'll keep that in mind before I post my next pictures

Another unique / individual car. Kudos! I also wanted to excel with my car and its individual paint, I think it works pretty well.
