BMW Malaysia is now offering more choice to BMW buyers in Malaysia now with it’s BMW Individual product range. Most of us know that in Malaysia we hardly get any choice in customizing the trim levels of our cars perhaps because of an inflexible production line designed to keep costs down. Well, if you can afford a certain few models from BMW, you can now do more than just choose what colour you want your interior to be.
Wolfgang Schlimme, Managing Director, BMW Malaysia Sdn Bhd said, â€œOffering Choice and Availability is and has been our strategic direction in the Malaysian market since we established ourselves in 2003. Now, with the BMW Individual product range, we raise the benchmark a notch higher â€“ allowing BMW owners to define their high performance, premium car to the highest degree of personal exclusivity.â€

- Moonstone metallic which contains Titanium Dioxide which generates light effect that changes colour between blue and white.
- Diamond metallic: VariochromeÂ® paint colour appears to â€œflipâ€ dramatically between red and gold.
- Blue Onyx metallic which contains black pigments that are larger, which makes for an elegant mirror-like effect.
- Malachite Green metallic which contains a seemingly endless number of green hues, reminiscent of the malachite gemstone.
