HD F250's 2011 Frozen Black M3

I finally picked up my Canadian 2011 Frozen Black M3. It was a bit of challenge getting everything in order, but I drove it back across the border yesterday. The guys at CBP were great and helped me get all the paperwork done. I am a FL resident and they are very easy to deal with as well for the registration. Thanks to M1zchief for working this deal with me and allowing me to purchase one of my favorite cars at a very fair price.

Below is the purchase thread.

Probably due to satin clear bra.

Either the angle or ppf on the front end like mentioned. Unfortunately, stealth ppf doesn't blend as well on some frozen colors.

Yes, the front is wrapped and its not 100% match. Its 3m and no my favorite. I am considering having it redone since it haves a few marks anyway.

As for cleaning, I got the soap and matte spray from Chemical Brothers. I need something to help get some streaks out of it. I am very tempted to buy the BMW matte wax.

My location is actually Northern VA, but wife is still active duty and a FL resident. I would have to give my left nut for property tax in VA.

Awesome Joe! Been having some issues with mine lately but we'll have to finally make an effort to get together in June or July. I'll bring my camera and we can get some good pics of the cars!

Looks good. Would look great with gold wheels, IMO.

Do you have to make any modifications to the car to register a Canadian car in FL?

I don't think so. California and Hawaii are the most strict with emissions in the states as far as I know.

Sounds like a plan Dan. I am actually going to do some detailing on her today and order some new tires.

No sir, the car actually had a CA emission sticker on it. FL doesn't have testing either.

Beautiful car sir. I have Xpel Stealth on mine and it too has a more grey, less shiny look but I like it, totally worth the peace of mind.

Thanks, much appreciated. I will probably get it redone and try another brand since 3M didn't match so well. But, I agree that it must be done on these cars or the paint will be trashed quick.
