Frozen Black E92 Individual on show

Hi Everyone
For those of us lucky enough to live on the Goldie I spotted this magnificent Frozen Black M3 at our local dealer. Thought the slide show may be of some interest.

Enjoy

Sure, it would be a real challenge to own a frozen edition, Did you see the yellow E90 @ Motorline?

Looks badass! Not sure I love it compared to the MCB, but think it would look better in person. Feel like it's missing something though...it's just so...black. Maybe fox red leather??

Yes, you are right, it looks very stealth!.It looks better in life than in pictures, quite surprised how much so.
If you did a good window tint, H&R springs, xenon angel eyes and a titanium exhaust it would really look the part.
Surprisingly the red stitching inside gives just enough contrast to make it interesting without taking away from that B2 bomber look and feel it has.
In life it looks as though it should be flown instead of driven

I wouldn't part with the MCB though. Apparently these frozens are difficult to clean and you can't apply any wax at all.

I think the ask is $202K, but can you imagine what our US friends think about that price I think they are paying around $76K.

Yes I did, good looking car but I couldn't live with it. I actually took the carbon fibre front splitters off it and had them put on my new car to finish it off!!

There's a frozen black E92 M3 coupe at Trivett Classic BMW as well.
Not the biggest fan of it though.

I do prefer the Java Green one they had there a few months back. Very unique!

How about taking some pics of the frozen silver and posting. I'm sure it would be of interest to everyone.

Dave, I'm in Frankfurt and have seen a few frozen models, but none of these are a touch on your MCB. I saw a black version that had a couple of scratches - looked horrible to be honest. I agree about the care aspects, a nightmare I would imagine!

I went into one of the dealer showrooms and saw a frozen white...now that looked amazing, red calipers, fox red interior, comp. pack wheels in matt black, carbon accessories....just wished I took some photos now that I think about it again.

Any pics of the frozen white one??


I saw a frozen grey coupe at Trivetts earlier this year and a frozen grey sedan in Hong Kong earlier this year. Wasn't too impressed.

That Montecarlo Blue one looks alright, never seen one in the flesh though here in Sydney...I'm still a sucker for Interlagos. Bias, I know.

Yeah - frozen white would look great I think - not really a fan of that black one... perhaps the lighter colours work better - I like the frozen grey as well.

Hi Damien
Bet the frozen white is interesting. It would be great to get some photos.
I guess a frozen colour would be hard to look after and there are so many good colours to choose.

Anthony at Motorline said that you can not only order an Individual colour, stock colour but also any colour made in the BMW range. The E90 yellow one they have there now is really interesting, and a Z4 colour, won't suit many but personally I really like it
Maybe worth another slide show post
