Is this a Real Limited Edition Frozen M3

https://www.carmax.com/car/14997674

As the post title says. is this a real Frozen m3?
Carmax said it was a limited edition 2013
But according to the registry there weren't any frozen gray 6 speeds ever made?

Hard to say, the car have the frozen interior trim where the carbon leather have color matching stitching. But on the outside it doesn't look right as the frozen edition have black exhaust tips, side grilles, front grilles and hood vents are all black. Also the wheels are supposed to be black too.

Edit: on a second look, the seats don't appear to be frozen edition. If I remember correctly the frozen gray have a gray stripe down the middle of the seat.

Yea... my guess is this is actually a custom paint with a ZCP package. I put a hold on it and will take a look in person tomorrow.

Edit: With the low miles and the color I like with the rims I like I figure it's still a great deal especially if I can get the carmax warranty.
Anything I should look out for as big red flags on this one?

Real frozen
Vin comes back as SONDERLACKIERUNG 490

Which is frozen black! Rare care in general but having a manual makes it even more rare!

according to a free online vin decoder, its just an individual frozen grey paint. doesn't look like one of the 1 of 30 cars or whatever.

That could be it, just an individual paint not the frozen edition. Either way, frozen edition or not, it is the same as the ZCP. Only thing with the frozen is you get color matching stitching and extended leather, not a deal breaker.

A red interior/speedcloth would've made this car perfect... The black is nice too. :-)

That's a beautiful car! Just a FYI on price for comparison. I have a 2013 frozen silver E92 M3 with 37K miles. Individual order with speedcloth seats, ZCP, DCT, dealer installed MPE. It's wrapped and in pretty much pristine condition. I asked my dealer for an appraisal as I was debating buying an extended warranty versus moving onto a new car. The stealership offered me 36K for the car. I kept my car and bought an extended warranty. Not sure if 45K is priced right for that car although I have an interest in high value for these cars.

Dealer offered you 36K because they want to sell it for +46k. After overhead they want to be make 10k profit.

Yeah. 10K mark-up is solid. Wonder if that's what they usually get for used sports cars.

What do you mean about the maps? Split screen is on and so is perspective view.
