Default ZCP by the cnumbers

I just bought a ZCP in IB and I was hoping to track down numbers by color.

So far this is this best I can find
BL93 (NA-spec coupe, LHD): 26,202 examples produced from 02/2001 through 05/2006

BMW produced a total of 3,011 E46 M3 coupes with the optional Competition Package (ZCP). The breakdown by model type is as follows: BL91 = 326 examples, BL92 (designated as the M3 CS in the United Kingdom) = 275 examples, BL93 = 2,410 examples.

Dying to know how many IB there are in the US, and with dove grey.


Edited to bring findings to the top:

went over to Max Bimmer to get the numbers:
Interlagos Blue
843 US / 54 CA


Interlagos + SMG
366 US / 21 CA

Interlagos + N5TT (Dove Gray)
154 US / 6 CA

Interlagos + N5TT (Dove Gray) + SMG
76 US / 2 CA

Dove Grey was the spec color that dealers ordered without an ordering customer because it was neutral and inoffensive to most potential buyers.

Cool chart!
So if I understand this correctly if there was 26,202 M3's produced for the NA market
and 2,410 were ZCP's

Then of the 2,410 ZCP's that were produced 1,048 were Interlagos Blue (4% of 26,202)

That's a lot more than I was thinking, I thought there may been 400 or so. Based on the Z4 M charts where 1815 examples were created, Interlagos Blue Metallic for under 300.

you sure that chart is the M3 ZCP colors and not the general pool of E46 M3s?
because some of those numbers (when calculated by percent) seem very unlikely. especially since some of the colors were discontinuedz(or being phased out) by the time the ZCP option was available.

His reasoning is that non-ZCP's can't be IB, which I believe is correct as BMW would not approve IB as an individual color back then.

It makes sense to me that nearly half the ZCP's would be IB since it was exclusive to that option.

I thought that was the general m3 coupe pool, wouldn't make sense if that was just ZCP's because like you noted, some of those colors weren't available by the time the ZCP's hit the market. Since IB was only offered in ZCP trim that's how I got the assumed total if all facts are correct. I just can't believe almost half of ZCP's were all IB. But that may be the case.

BMW approved IB as an Individual color for 2 E46 M3s.
