Thanks!
I heard that the new M5 will come with the option ceramic brakes, it sounds pretty interesting!

Did the frozen black M3 have red deviated stitching as well?

Yes it did. Budd's has one in their showroom, red stitching, brakes and all. 98k (CDN) list (the Frozen Comp. option was 9900, rest of the car was fully jammed). Beautiful IMO but the upkeep just to keep the paw prints and smudges off of it....yikes!!!

I am sure I am a minority here on the forum, but I really don't see the big attraction to these "Frozen" colors....it's the same fricken car, but with a premium price tagged on to the matte paint...plus I would think it is just a fad. Maybe I am missing something..lol

It has always been my contention that Frozen/Matte is a fad as well. To the untrained eye it just looks like a primer coat. The waiver & discloser and extra maintenance coupled by the wallet reaming is really a turnoff.

Just out of curiosity, what is "the waiver/disclosure", and what kind of maintenance does it require?....a special wax? Can it be clear coated, or does that negate the matte effect?

BMW requires owners to sign a "maintenance agreement" that insists the M3 is never polished or waxed, ran through an automatic car wash or even strongly rubbed. Additionally, BMW politely asks that you immediately remove bugs, bird droppings, tree sap and fuel spills with a soft sponge, and naturally, dealers are more than willing to sell you appropriate products for maintaining the matte finish.

I would like a reciprocal one from BMW when they prep a new car and have it in for service.
