Sure, but I also think of ways to keep tweaking, enhancing, and then breaking things!

Champagne...

...was indeed offered for several years as Ken Meese pointed out. I know it was a color choice at least through 2002, maybe more.

Until the changes to the LT in 2005, all seats were black. Beginning with the 2005 US model year, gray was introduced along with black.

Exclamation K1200LT Paint Color List: ver 3.0 - (added paint codes)

K1200LT - Colors by Year

1999 - Canyon Red, Basalt Grey Metallic, Champagne Metallic
2000 - Canyon Red, Basalt Grey Metallic, Champagne Metallic, Pacific Blue Metallic
2001 - Mauve Pearl, Night Black, Toscana Green Metallic, Pacific Blue Metallic, Champagne Metallic
2002 - Night Black, Pacific Blue Metallic, Toscana Green Metallic, Mauve Pearl, Titan Silver Metallic
2003 - Titan Silver Metallic, Anthracite Metallic, Impala Brown Metallic, Night Black
2004 - Impala Brown Metallic, Night Black, Titan Silver Metallic
2005 - Ocean Blue Metallic, Dark Graphite Metallic, Light Yellow Metallic
2006 - Ocean Blue Metallic, Magnesium Black Graphite, Storm Gray Metallic
2007 - Night Black, Biarritz Blue Metallic, Storm Gray Metallic

(BMW only officially offers 3 colors per year. But many Beemers are shipped over here painted colors from previous years. Champagne Metallic and Night Black are probably the two greatest examples of these 'anomalies'.)


K1200LT - Paint Codes
Anthracite Metallic (397)
Biarritz Blue Metallic (847)
Basalt Gray Metallic (410)
Canyon Red Metallic (343)
Champagne Metallic (417)
Dark Graphite Metallic (919)
Impala Brown Metallic (418)
Light Yellow Metallic (376)
Magnesium Black Graphite (N01)
Mauve Pearl (489)
Night Black (668)
Ocean Blue Metallic (947)
Pacific Blue Metallic (441)
Storm Gray Metallic (N02)
Titan Silver Metallic (354)
Toscana Green Metallic (492)


Trim colors / codes (i.e. dash etc.)
Magnesium Metallic (957)


As expected, I found a few conflicts regarding paint code numbers. I did the best that I could. Perhaps BMW used different paint codes for the same color from year to year.

Hope this helps...

Not wanting to start any trouble, but were these colors the choices worldwide? Were the choices the exact same whether you were in the Europe, North America, or Far East markets?

I think a disclaimer should also be added to the list stating that there were some other limited colors, and colors held over from one year to the next until they ran out of that paint, as I've heard thru the years. This way, any prospective buyer that runs across an uncharted color for a certain year, won't call the seller a liar. (A lot of newbies visiting our site could use this list and think of it as gospel.)
