Exactly - this is how that guy got into the unfortunate situation in the first place probably. Someone saw Atlantis Blue and corrected to the one-letter-off Atlantic Blue. Paint code always best, but does help to leave the Blue off .

Actually, I'm confused because I thought it was "Atlantis Metallic" too, paint code 399. I see a lot of Atlantis Blue references in that Color Code list but maybe they are all wrong or it changed.

Thank you for finding it Artemis! Maybe they can update the paint list with the additional information that I posted.

Bonus for you: your BMW color code 336 in 1998.

So it looks like "Aegean Blue" got BMW color codes 336 and 557.

Confirmation of Aegean Blue (336) on the current BMW Individual visualizer! I can sleep well now, knowing it's still available.
