#1 First US Spec E92 Frozen Gray M3 delivered!!!!!!!

Hey guys just wanted to post a couple teaser pics. A customer(i cant disclose his name sorry) of ours was granted the first FG e92 M3 is the US due to his ridiculously large collection. He has almost every M car bmw has ever made in his collection. He was granted by bmw to receive #1 due to his loyalty. I am please to announce that Steve Thomas BMW located in Camarillo CA will have his car on our showroom for viewing for a couple of weeks in till the owner comes back from vacation and picks it up. So if you would like to see it in person please feel free and stop by.

As soon as it gets done going through the shop ill post some more pics.

Cheers
Jimmy

Agree with the "eh" comment, nothing special about this color except how special you'll feel sans $5k in your bank account.

Agree with the black wheels too

2010 BMW M3 E90  [5.00]
I'm underwhelmed with the look. Reading the other posts about the BMW advisory concerning care of the paint and that only BMW can repair damage makes me like it even less. I love my space gray metallic and can wax it too! I remember seeing a post a bit ago that showed this film adhesive protectant that could be applied to the entire vehicle and it gives the paint a similar look. That might be a better way to go if you want to tone down the shine some, and is much more practical. Ah well, variety is the spice of life...I've learned over the years though that exotics (cars, goods, services, women, what ever...) tend to be much higher maintenance and lead to frustration.

What happens when some smuck in a parking lot brushes up against this paint? I'm too anal for this paint.

That's a very good point. According to BMW, someone should be at the ready with "a moist sponge" in case of such an occurrence.

where do you guys come up with this info on the paint? any BMW authorized body shop will be able to fix any mishaps with it. in fact I bet it stays looking good much longer than jet black which will show swirls and scratches in no time.
