My wife thinks it looks plain ole bad. Looks like an unfinished paint job. I kinda agree never really fell for the matte look.

I have never liked any of the matte cars I have see in person and pictures for the most part. but for some reason the bmw frozen doesnt look the same as a matte homemade paint job, is it the same?

cause I like it.

Actually, I believe it is the space gray base coat with a satin clear coat instead of gloss.

I have been talking to them and supposedly this car is the same as the 1st one on this thread list, but I have a little conflicting information between EA and the dealer that sold it, non the less EA seems like they are top notch and the guy I am speaking with is also. However, being that, they wont typically give you a "good" deal on the car. I want to buy that car but 73k is not worth it since I can take Euro delivery of a brand new one for 75k'ish as Euro delivery and painted frozen grey with extended leather, so thats what I am on the fence about. let me know how it goes.

This is the FGC Listed as #1 on this thread. It was reserved before the 30 were available to the public for reservation according to Steve Thomas BMW and the original and only owner. The car is in great condition and will not disappoint. I haven't see one of the FGC's with a lower VIN#, as these were not numbered by BMW.

We'll be happy to discuss the car and share all the information with any seriously interested qualified buyers.

Hey, welcome aboard! My CA at Peake told me they had sold one of the Frozen Grays but no sightings. What part of town do you live in? Will be on the lookout for you...

There was one that went through Bachrodt BMW in Rockford, IL. I was there the day they delivered it. it was a few months ago. Then, I just saw it at a shopping mall last weekend, so the owner must still be in the area. Awesome part is that M3's, in general, are very rare here. So this guy/gal with the Frozen Grey one is in very rarified air!!

Imagine their surprise if I can find them again after next Friday and park my Space Grey one next to it!! Can't wait.
