An exclusive body color Pure Metal Silver, consistent of a unique BMW Individual paint layering process embellishes this limited edition. Due to the unique application process, creating a special light dark effect, Pure Metal Silver is BMW Individual’s most exclusive paint job available. Its silk skin and high metal brilliance reflect light more intensely than any other color.

Responsible for this unique metal gleam is the combination of a special effect pigment with a water base paint system. Hundreds of thousands of ultra thin aluminum flakes guarantee a uniform and gleaming surface. Painting

a vehicle in this color is extremely delicate and requires a lot of detailed hand work. The vehicle is completely removed from the regular production processes and the surface of the car is checked three times until the surface is 100-percent perfect.

After the paint preparation, the chassis is carefully examined where any uneven elements are smoothened by hand. To achieve the Pure Metal Silver look the chassis needs a glossy and smooth surface utilizing a Glacier Silver Metal base coat. One more surface check is completed prior to the application of the final coating. After cleaning the vehicle with compressed air, Pure Metal Silver is applied. The finishing specialist polishes and examines the vehicle one last time by hand before the chassis leaves Plant Dingolfing’s paint shop.

The 20-inch M light alloy wheels with performance tires (265/35R20 at the front, 295/30R20 at the rear) highlight the car’s outstanding handling characteristics.
