Default Any idea of the color?

I have a 2002 m3.
I am the third owner.
I cant seem to find the exact color code on this one.
I know it says 490
From what I have researched it says that it was a special to order custom color. And that possibly only around 5-10 in all of the states are roaming in this specific color.
But cant seem to find the exact name of the color anywhere.

Its an individual car. Looks like Stratus Grey from the photo. Can you provide a VIN?

There should be another sticker right next to the sticker you took a photo of, is there?

Yes, very rare and will be a very desirable car someday. Take the stupid lens tint of the front and rear and keep it clean.

I hope this is a weekend toy and not a daily driver. Nice find!
