Frozen black feedback?

Suitable for everyday ? I really like this color a lot, and want to order it with a e92 competition/fox red extended competition with carbon bits, but want to hear people who heard or has experience with the paint. Thanks !

Frozen colors are easy to maintain and looks even better in person than in pics! There's a recent thread discussing frozen paint care

Yeah frozen colors are much easier to maintain overall and much more convenient to live with overall. I used to work at a shop that sprayed several matte cars like lambos etc so I say this from experience. There was a crazy rumor running around that frozen colors were an incredible headache to deal with because BMW published an advisory for frozen color owners essentially saying don't try to shine your non-shiny paint and then included some universal care instructions that are true of all paint. Because of the legal pedantic overly specific and German way the common sense advisory was worded people got the false idea that frozen colors were a nightmare to deal with.

Hope that helps.

not a fan of frozen colors. it reminds me of the old beaters i see on the road whose paint is faded from years of neglect.
