Woodcliff Lake, NJ / Carmel, CA – August 15, 2013 . . . BMW announced today the BMW Individual DesignworksUSA Consultation Program, a new program where clients work directly with a BMW Group DesignworksUSA designer to commission their very own BMW.

This unique designer consultation program is the first of its kind in the U.S.

Particularly discerning customers can now work together with a BMW Group DesignworksUSA designer for suggestions and advice on color and trim creation.


The new program officially launches at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance event in California where clients visiting the BMW Villa will have the opportunity to meet with lead designer Sandy McGill for consultation on a unique BMW design. She will review with them the extraordinary options in leather, interior trim and paintwork.

McGill is based at BMW Group DesignworksUSA in California and has more than 20 years of experience in the field of design.

“At DesignworksUSA, we have a deep understanding of colors and materials because we travel the world studying design trends for BMW Group vehicles as well as for our outside clients,” said Sandy McGill; Lead Color, Material and Finish Designer; BMW Group DesignworksUSA. “Just as people have interior designers for their homes and tailors for their clothes, we are the personal designers for their vehicles. We help clients express their personal identity through their vehicle.”


Clients who cannot attend the event at Pebble Beach can meet Sandy McGill and the BMW design team at BMW Group DesignworksUSA studio in Southern California or via phone for consultation. During the consultation sessions, clients are provided with image concepts as well as color, leather and trim samples they can touch and feel.

In order to take advantage of this unique and exclusive program, clients can contact BMW Group DesignworksUSA or their BMW Center.

The BMW Individual program is available on the 5 Series Sedan, 6 Series, 7 Series and the X6 as well as the M versions of these models. It allows clients to choose from packages or a-la-carte by offering a wide variety of brilliant paint finishes, high quality leathers, sophisticated trims, headliners and equipment to choose from. Every detail is the result of top-class workmanship to make choices truly unique.

BMW Group DesignworksUSA represents the perfect platform for creating a customized BMW Individual vehicle as it provides access to professional designers that work hand-in-hand with clients throughout the commissioning processes.
