Any chance the U.S. may get this color option? The rest of the world can and I'd love to buy it!!

You're probably the only one so I doubt it.

Seriously, I suppose there are regional costs for every option BMW is willing to offer, but it seems pretty short-sighted to go to the trouble of designing, sourcing and manufacturing options and then not offering them in their biggest single market. Paint is only one issue. There's also interior colors, wheels and of course engines, but engines and body styles are understandably a much bigger risk/commitment to make than paint colors. That's why limiting the finish options in the US seems so penny ante.
