Question Orbit Gray Wheels without Track Package on 2016 GC?

Hello all! I have tried searching and reading, so I do apologize in advance if this has been asked elsewhere and I did not see it.

My wife and I are about to lease a 435i Gran Coupe M-Sport and we have opted for the 19" alloy wheels. We like the Orbit Gray variant better but have been told that for 2016 the Orbit Gray is only available with the Track Handling Package. The Build tool at BMW seems to confirm. We aren't interested in the Track Handling Package, but wondered if there is a way to order with the Orbit Gray as a solo option that our salesperson might not be familiar with. We ran into that situation before, so I thought it was worth asking.

Thanks!

That appears to also be verboten. If I find a solution, I'll let you know.

The 442M Orbit Grey is listed on the 435GC MSport as part of the track package only. In the accessories section for wheels they're not even listed.

Thanks! Is there a sourceI could look at? Maybe there is a different wheel that IS available that we like better?

Edit: found it. No dice.

Aside from purchasing the wheels yourself there is no way around this. I just picked up my 2016 328 MSport with Track package. The 328 cannot be ordered with 19's. I bought the 19's myself and had the center put them on the car before delivery. Now I am left with a set of brand new 18" track package wheels and tires lol.
