Color change after status 150?

I have order a AW and SO for EU with a p/u date of 10/12. The car has gone code 150. Anyone know if there is a chance of changing color? I'm thinking Space Grey with SO. Thanks

Doubtful...Call your dealer first thing in the morning. You never know.

Why? I've seen both in person and white looks fantastic. Space grey looks very common to me - like any other bimmer on the road.

I say stick with your original choice If you really want grey, go with Singapore or Silverstone - they are ///M specific colors.

Call dealer ASAP. White looks great but I would have went with space gray as well. One of most common colors for bmw's on the road but rare on F10 M5's. Its the only color that makes the 19 inch wheels look great on the M5

Did you order any individual items? I thought about adding B&O and could not at 112 because of the Piano Black trim. According to my CA they lock-down the individual cars much earlier than those without ind. items. Either way, if your are 150 you are most likely stuck.

How about a photo of AW/SO to cheer you up?

Once your status 150 all dealer can do is swap the car with another car which may be destined for dealer inventory. However given rareness of M5s that is not very likely with exact option config.

Once it goes into status 150 the order cannot be changed. It's cool though - AW looks fantastic on the M cars.

Fact! No change after 150, it's already been assigned a VIN # at this time so that VIN actually describes the car in code... I tried like bloody hell to add in B&O sound and had called everyone under the sun, dealer, bmwna, product specialists talking to factory. I am one persistent dude.... To a fault. I was not able to change after 150 status. You will see that car will be at the port done in like 5 days from 150 status

I then heard the B&O in person after I was told no and was not impressed.i thank bmw's discipline now for saving this persistent boy $3500 smackaroos!
