Cool Where are all the U.S. Frozen Gray M3s? List Inside.

Reported on M3POST HOMEPAGE.


All 30 Frozen Gray 2011 M3 Coupes for the U.S. market should now be built. So, where are they all? The following is a list of where most of them are. Many are members of M3Post. Dealers have also apparently obtained several of them. Of course some of these might end up being duplicates.

Oh sweet. Looks like that video was shot today. I'm picking up my M3 tomorrow so I can take a look at this one...assuming that it's still there. Did I hear someone in the video say that it's going for MSRP?

It wouldn't surprise me if some people are taking a few days trying to decide how best to clean their car before taking pics.

The guy who bought from us plans on rarely driving it, just putting it in his gallery. I wanted to ask him before he picked up the car what he thought about the paint waver but didn't get a chance. I'm sure that it can't be to bad to take care of the car, i mean why would any car company do something that would cause backlash on purpose. I guess we will have to wait and see.

I'm sure that it's really nice but I think I would opt to have the car wrapped just for the durability.

Yup, saw one frozen gray coupe up here in Toronto, Canada. Didn't get to snap a pic of it, but it had license plate protectors from Open Road BMW (dealership in Newmarket which is north of Toronto).

Thanks everyone for adding to the list. So far at least eight people with the U.S. Frozen Grays are M3Post members.

Congrats! I remember you asking some questions about FG on the other main M3 forum, and I was wondering if you were considering getting one. Look forward to some more pics.

Thanks! I can't wait to actually see it in person.

You probably saw me posting about putting a clear bar on the car.

Another FG owner already put a matte bra on his: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=412523

This won't necessarily be a daily driver, but it'll definitely get plenty of use. I love the protection and peace of mind that the clear bra offers, but I can't tell if the appearance trade off is worth it...

I too was interested in how BMW America suggest their customers maintain the paint finish since this finish doesn't allow the normal style of care.

There was one sold at BMW of Mt. Laurel about two weeks ago. I don't know who the buyer was.

It was spotted at the NJ shore last weekend in Longport...must be his summer place.
