This is BMW’s most expensive paint.
When BMW customers purchase a new vehicle they have more than 230 options to select from. One of them just so happens to be BMW’s Individual Pure Metal Silver from the BMW Individual Catalog and it will set you back a whopping $10,000. The chrome effect of the Pure Metal Silver finish is produced through a water-based paint system and unique-effect pigment that consists of an incredible amount of ultra-thin aluminum flakes. As you can guess, applying this paint is an arduous process.
To give the paint its special high-metallic appearance, reflective properties and light-dark effect, all the flakes have to face the same direction. It’s an impressive process but there’s no way we’re shelling out an extra $10,000 for it.
