I didn't think Individual was available on the 2 series. The matte black M235i was a dealer that used matte black vinyl wrap. Not really the same.

Nope factory will refuse special order colours even if the colour is offered in the 228i range for a m235i.

Yep....can't even get VO on a 228i MSport....Had to come up with this config to get a "feel-alike".....sport seats and powertrain are the same, and DH package brings in steering and chassis. Hoping VO opens up to MSport for 2015!

BMW indiv is not available for the 2 series yet however David said he has no problem asking for any color combo when a buyer places an order with him.

I didn't. I'm either deciding on Melbourne red on red in manual or waiting for M2 in VO, I'm just guessing but there has to be a reason no msport or m235 can be VO

As far as the body-in-white (sheetmetal), there is no reason. However, the fascias and sills come to the plant from an external supplier, in-color. It is most likely that there is either an ongoing complexity issue with assembly plant end item count for the sourced painted parts, or the supplier of those parts had not mastered VO for 14MY. I am keeping my eyes out for the 2015 order guide. It would be very reasonable to see VO availability spread in the second year of production. Keeping VO to a limited production actually creates waste for the paint on-hand at the plant, which needs to be kept fresh/stirred until used....or discarded.
