Is this a individual color?
It looks similar to the Lamborghini Balloon White that IND painted their M5 to.
It's actually a special order color but not sure if considered individual since there are no individual colors stated as brilliant white

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

Stock white color is called "Alpine White"

What color is yours called? Brilliant white?

Didn't BMW used to have another white they used on their M3 called "Mineral White"

yes they had an M3 called mineral white that was very similar to this but this has a pearl effect, not just a metalic fleck like i think the M3 paint had

this is called: Brilliant White Metallic, i think thats what i am reading on the plate on the pic below. if you read my inital post you will see there was a HUGE descrepancy with the name all the way to delivery.

Oh, and i see it now, it is individual

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)
