Didn’t order this color. However, I have a feeling that a well kept one in ZB will be an enthusiast’s most desired model 10 years from now.

I also predict that that in future years ahead, when this color is no longer a standard option but an individual color, ppl will clamor to get it and others will speak about how amazing it looks…

Agreed. Ten years might be a little premature. I would give it 15 to 20+ years.

I’d like to see someone with some photoshop flair add a wide and narrow Gulf Racing Orange stripe off Centre on the ZB, interested to see.

I noticed this happens with launch spec cars pretty often across the board if they aren't already desirable from the jump. Though one may argue it's a toss up between ZB or TR being the official "launch spec", I certainly think ZB has been photographed and displayed more.

I'd say zb is the official launch spec zb is being released for the first time exclusively for this car. Whereas tr is already available on a bunch of other BMWs

It would be cool to put a Gulf livery on the car. It looks a lot like Gulf Blue.

I do not see that much orange within TR. YMMV. For a metallic paint, I find Toronto Red somewhat flat. I do with Brooklyn Grey as well.

Is the Mexico plant just limited in the colors they can paint a car??

Looking at the BMW site, it's sad the limited number of colors available to the M2.

Don't they make the 3-series there? M3 included?? Why couldn't they offer the same colors as the M3? They offer more colors for the 330i!

Too bad they couldn't offer at least Skyscraper Grey metallic from the 3 palette. That would have been a good color for M2.

I imagine going to be a lot of wrapped M2 on the road.
