Yes it was 5k and adds 1+ month to the order. I really like it

I think it was hand painted and not by a machine/robot because there are areas that are just a little different on each panel, not anything bad but it looks like it has some kind of human touch
Not hand painted. Still done by the same robots as any other color .
As they need to have a minimum number of shells for each color to paint during
production it might take a little longer to go through production as they "collect" the required number of cars . For each color they have to flush the paint system and prep the new color , but this is actually done in just a few minutes.
I'd bet your and my VIN are very close together as my car went actually through production 5 weeks before my pickup in Munich (usually production starts 2 weeks prior to pickup)
