Congrats- the car looks sick!

Can the frozen (matte) colors have clear stone guard applied to them?
I;ve heard you can not wax them and you have to wipe off any bugs right away or it can damage the finish. Wondering if they make a clear film (in a matte finish) that would help with these issues and protect the paint...?

Thanks for all your comments on the car guys. The photos don't do it justice and it's even more amazing in the flesh.

There's a lot of BS on the boards about the frozen colours. In the UK, there is no disclaimer to sign on frozen and no special instructions on care. Having said that, you need to use the right products to care for the paint.

I've now had the car detailed with Swissvax Opaque and it looks fantastic! This range was developed for Matt paints from Ferrari, Lambo, Bugatti etc and it looks great on BMW frozen colours. I will post a new thread with a full write up when I get back from my Spanish holiday in a few days.

Ok, that car is just badass. I really want the stitching on my MR car! Man with the red/black inheritor I'm getting the stitching would look so hot. I'll definitely be getting my wheels powder coated later and get the black kidneys and side gills.

It's a combination for a special person with special taste.
Excellent choice.

I just saw a car spec'ed pretty much exactly like you are buying at Edmonton BMW. Although it is not my cup of tea it is definitely gonna be a rare car. I especially liked the black interior with the red stitching, I think that looks very good....... I wish I would have thought to order black stitching with my Amarone interior.

Congrats on the new M!!!! Enjoy it in good health!!!!

there is one at Crowfoot BMW in Calgary also, so Alberta will have its fair share of this car.

I was doing some research and they actually make venture shield in a matte finish to work with these flat finishes. Well worth the investment to protect the paint in this case.
