The only good thing about it is the interior with the red stitching...that looks nice. the matte black is ok

However, the calipers are quite small to be painted a different color, maybe it just didnt picture well.

For some reasons 911 calipers in red look very attractive, are they bigger then our M3s?

Not sure if I like it. Maybe the angle and lighting is wrong? Doesn't look like it is "lowered". Need more pics in different lighting, angle etc,. That kind of paint must be hard to upkeep... can't just spray "BMW Express Wax" on it and wipe it off for that perfect glaze. Probably, as someone previously said here,- this kind of paint must be a biatch to match if you get a stone chip.

Interior stitching is nice, but is it all worth the extra $$$?

I would like to see Frozen Blue. It should be even better than Frozen Grey.

How do you clean that and keep it looking good? Can't you just see the greasy fingerprints all over it?

Don't like the red brakes at all. Time to invest a little time in designing a fresh looking rim. Love the red stitching in the interior.

I might like these flat colors... for somebody else's car. I'll take mine in shiny!

Is this a joke?

Lots of cars with paint like that in dem mountains of West Virginia. I think I'll stick with the Interlagos Blue.

I like matte black on curtain parts the of the car, but everything even the wheels. I think it's too much. Not that it looks bad, that m3 looks good but I think I would get tired of that color everyday on an M.

the frozen colours are not equal to matte colours like on wrapped cars

for example the frozen gray paint looks much more special in person...and from up close


So I`m sure the frozen black looks different in person as well...

looking forward to seeing the frozen sepang colour!!!

Just found these while browsing autogespot. Doubt it's frozen black. Probably just wrapped.
