BMW had a 40 Years of M display for all to see at the Ringwerk during the 24 Hours Nurburgring race weekend. On display was a gorgeous Moonstone Metallic Individual F10 M5 (with Champagne Merino Individual itnerior) and Citrin Black Individual F12 M6 convertible, along with X5M / X6M, an M3, and an M1.
Many M Flight members had the opportunity to attend the 2012 M Festival at the Nurburgring during the 24hr Race (18-20 May 2012), which celebrated BMW M’s 40th anniversary.
The first day started out for the group at Pentagon Car Sales in Ramstein-Miesenbach, which they set out from for the Nurburgring. Upon arriving at the Ring, all members parked their Ms in the M Parking Garage. The M Shuttle then brought the group to the M Gallery where they were received by Brian Watts (BMW … CONTINUED
The 6 Series Convertible M Sport may already be a pretty eye catching car, but this owner wanted to make doubly sure that he would be noticed by ordering his car in Atacama Yellow Individual color.
We have posted some updated photos of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe M Sport in beautiful Black Citrin Individual, from the BMW press drives in Sicily, Italy.
We’re here in gorgeous Sicily, Italy for the BMW press drives for the 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. There’s a fleet of 6 Series Gran Coupes here for evaluation and on display at the hotel is a Space Grey / Cohiba Brown Individual 650i and Citrin Black Individual 640i M Sport, which we’ve posted photos of below.
We’ll be sharing our first drive reaction to the Gran Coupe with you soon, but for now enjoy some more looks at the 6 Series Gran Coupe.
The 2013 BMW M6 Coupe (F13) (official info thread) has also made an appearance at the 2012 Auto China show in Beijing, in a stunning Brilliant White Metallic Individual exterior with Opal White Individual leather interior and Piano Black Gloss trim.

Citrin Black is one of the recommended BMW Individual colors for the F10 M5 and we’ve also discovered that it’s one of the rarer BMW Individual colors ordered as there are not many examples of it on any BMW. Now here’s a shiny new example from M5POST member PeterM5 who just took delivery of this gorgeous Citrin Black 2012 M5.
It’s paired with piano black interior trim and platinum merino leather, making for a beautiful combination.
An M3POST member shares with us his european delivery journal, recounting the experience of picking up his stripped down basic configuration E93 M3 coupe in Individual Fire Orange exterior.
Matt Russell, BMW M Brand Manager, and a BMW Body & Paint Specialist explains the paint guidelines behind BMW’s “frozen” matte paint finishes. The care required is actually much less than most expect.
Only regular shampoo and insect remover (BMW recommends theirs of course) is needed. No other chemicals (sealants, waxes, polishes, etc.) are needed.
* They warn that you can even damage the frozen matte paint by using a microfiber cloth, wax, sealant, or quick detailer.
Congratulations to M5POST member and happy new M5 owner, HHSAM, on the delivery of his F10 M5 in Moonstone Individual, the first such color M5 on the site.
The exterior color is Moonstone Metallic (one of BMW’s recommended Individual colors for the new M5). The interior is Platinum Merino full extended leather and the trim is Auburn Sycamore. The Moonstone Metallic color with its depth and ever changing look in different lights is stunning and even more impressive in person.
This is a Gulf spec M5, so it … CONTINUED
