Frozen Grey M3

Gents --

A Heads-up:

I've been told by BMW North America that 5 Frozen Grey Models are allocated for Canada in 2010 (for MY2011). They are slated for May Production/June Delivery. Found this info out today.

When I was enquiring on Frozen Grey a few weeks ago, I was told the price of paint would be about $5K and that production wouldn't be allocated until August. They've now moved on this.

I've opted out as I'm an impatient bugger, so there are still 5 available...

Thanks for the info. I really wanted this colour but changed my mine to Space Grey. After seeing many more pictures of it I think the matte/primer look will get old quickly. Still a fantastic looking colour, I would reconsider it again it wasn't $5k extra. That's a set of nice Brembos right there!

Very interesting. I have ordered my M3 for European Delivery on 1 July. Apparently dealer has the allocation, delivery date is confirmed but is unable to build in their system yet?

Currently Interlagos Blue with Bamboo Beige interior. Asked about Frozen Grey but was told it was not an option. Am reconsidering but difficult decision without being able to see one. I am in Halifax and there have yet to see a matte finish car, so it would be somewhat unique. $5k though?

For those who have ordered Canadian MY 11's, have you gotten pricing yet? Also considering the Competition pack but waiting to see the exact price/contents for us. $2500 with EDC for US, will probably mean $6000 in Canada without EDC...

Forgot to mention that the dealer also told me that the 7MA Competiton Pack would be considered a "special order" with an additional $400 charge.

Here is what they say is in it:

"Package for drive dynamics optimisation:"

- Exclusive 19" M light alloy wheels - Y spoke 359M;
- Front: 9J x 19: 245/35 R19
- Rear: 10J x 19: 265/35 R19
- Lowered Suspension (approc 10mm).
- No EDC mentioned...

I feel kind of stuck having to get all my info through my SA. I noticed that some of you deal with BMW NA directly and some have contacts in Germany. How did you swing that?

I am learning a hell of a lot more through this forum than I am from the dealer... Thank God this is here, at least...

I just got back from UK and saw a Frozen Grey in a dealership, looked very nice. Also saw a Matte Black. Didn't like it at all.

I also saw matte Black Rolls Royce Phantom, Maserati Granturismo Range Rover and Lambo Gallardo. IMO it only looked good on the Range Rover and the Lambo crap on the rest.

Hope this helps....the wholesale pricing on our Comp. Pkg is around $5300.00 but it includes EDC which I took to mean that EDC is mandatory for us. I paid the $400 special order price but it covers all of the Individual items I specified.

As for contacting M Division directly, I guess I didn't know any better and sent the boss there an e-mail a year ago outlining my thoughts for the individualization I was hoping for. Received a reply the very next day from the person responsible for overseeing North and South American M cars and maintained the relationship ever since. BMW Canada was copied on all of the correspondence in order to stay in the loop but allowed me to continue my dialogue with Germany directly. M Division and Individual provided me with 5 or 6 digitized design proposals over the past year before I finally settled on "the right one" and ordered it last week. Honestly, I don't think a dealership would have put up with me and all of the changes I kept making. No matter....it was fun!!

Regards, Mark

To my knowledge, the US price DOES NOT include EDC.

Oh no problem. But I think our U.S. cousins will be paying 2500.00 for the comp package and then adding EDC on top of it. The EDC mentioned in the comp package is the specific EDC "tune", not EDC itself. Therefore, like us here in Canada, EDC is a mandatory option if you choose to take ZCP. Take a peek at the U.S. Tech package. It's 3200 and change w/o ZCP and 2500 with EDC. You still have to add the cost of ZCP. At the end of the day, US retail is about 5000 USD, Cdn retail is about 6000 CDN.
