This is what I call a Frozen section....There were Frozen Black, Matte Black (yes BMW actually makes matte black as seen on the M3 DTM race car), Frozen Blue, Frozen Grey, Frozen Silver (SSII based), Frozen Polar Silver (M3 CRTs), and the most interesting Frozen Valencia Orange. This particular 1M was stripped of the clear coat and had Frozen OEM clear coat applied over the paint. It looked very nice and the job was perfect. As far as the Frozen Black and Matte Black there is quite a difference between the two. Frozen Black is very smooth and slick to the touch and has a low-lustre shine where as Matte Black paint is very porous and no shine at all. E92 M3 with BMW BANK stickers is Matte Black and F10 M5 or E90 M3 is Frozen Black for comparison.

The CRT parked next to the GTS belongs to the same guy/family from Australia, who keeps them in Germany so they can enjoy them here.

The other picture with two M3 CRTs (1 and 2 of 67) and F10 M5 in Frozen Silver parked between them were given to press for test rides, and then will be sold later.
