There are only 3 builds in the entire US that are non-NA builds

I have one if anyone is looking for dravit or tanzanite in the Northeast

I was tracking January for Tanzanite as well, but now can't seem to find the post where someone said that.

The three remaining German allocations were all for January. I had one for week 1 but it was recently bumped to week 45. I'm also a dealer and got lucky with the German allocation to get my dravit grey.

Week 45....? So does that mean if we want Tanzanite, and don't get the January allocation window, we have to wait until August 2021?!

Talked to Mountain View BMW yesterday. They said they have allocations for tanzanite and dravit builds in November. No waiting till January.

Sales guy had no idea what I was talking about with regard to ordering an individual build or port installed accessories though so take it with a grain of salt. I think I’m going to have to make an appointment to talk to a BMW Genius to place the order.

I saw brokers here in the north east with Germany allocations for tanzanite and dravit. Slots where very limited the most I saw a broker had was 2

Does anyone know if BMW is accepting BMW Individual paint color orders before January?
I was negotiating on an order of an M340i xDrive in British Racing Green when a salesperson at a high-volume dealer told me their rep said BMW is not even accepting Individual paint orders until January. I take that to mean that such an order would not even be assigned a production number until January. I've read most of this forum on the subject and haven't seen this specific issue. All help welcomed!
Thanks.

This thread caught my eye. I'm considering a Dravit Grey order. Was looking at Mineral Grey, but the Dravit is certainly catching my eye, but didnt realize you had to have a allocation from Germany.

I would like to order probably in December. Doesnt sound too promising with regard to German allocations from what I am reading here.

I find this particular issue confusing, San Luis is one of bmws newest (if not the newest) plant. How did they not plan for one of the most advanced and flexible paint shop? One would think the newest plant would more capable of individual colors... not less

I guess demand is small enough that they're happy to have just Germany fulfill the orders and not waste the money tooling up your local plants to deliver individual colours...
