It is. You just have to pay for it. On top of that you need to do a lot of research and data-mining and know what you're looking for.

BMW's online TIS database (it's like $300 for a week's access I think) has a VIN decoder that can tell you what color and options are equipped on each car. So if you have the money, time, and patience you can actually run the entire series of VINs for the production (if you know what the range of VINs are) and get each and every 328iT and its actual color and option package.

Someone did that for the MZ4s, wrote a script to enter every single VIN into the TIS DB and extracted a list of options for every MZ4 roadster and coupe ever built. Apparently I have 1 of 3 Interlagos Blue MZ4 Coupe with Dark Sepang interior AND manual seats ever made. 1 of 2 sold in North America.
