Frozen color list now offered by BMW

So seems like there are five frozen colors now offered by BMW. At the M Festival I saw the following on the Munich exec cars:
Frozen Grey
Frozen Black
Frozen White (on E92 M3)
Frozen Silver on E92 M3/F10 5series (this color is based on SSII)
Frozen Polar Silver on E90 M3 CRT (based on Titanium silver)

Edit:
New one on the list is Frozen Blue (Monte Carlo Blue based).

haha seriously.

I would love to see carbon black in the frozen variety. That is one of my favorite BMW colors of all time!

Does that mean you can order it from BMW Indv? If so, it kind of gets rid of the limited production point..

wow, i'd like to see frozen White and TiAg.

I thought the Frozen Silver (SSII) looked really good, but SSII looks the best with the clear coat and gloss.

It means that Individual has the ability to paint cars in these colors. It does not mean that BMW USA will approve your color choice. It took a year or so for them to approve Frozen Gray requests after the FG special edition, so expect something similar for Frozen Black (meaning that there probably won't be any more E9x M3s in FB in the US).

You might be able to - you could try and see what they say. I don't see any conflict there since that color is not being used for any special edition car in the US as far as I know.

The problem with frozen grey is that when the special edition came out it was only about the paint not the interior so cant do individual Frozen grey. Frozen black special edition is about the paint and the interior so you can order individual paint in FB or that individual interior with red stitching but not both together at once.

No FrozenSilver or Frozen Polar Silver will be available in the near future. Frozen Polar Silver will never be available as individual. It's purely for E90 M3 CRT

Just take a look at any red car that is 10 years old + from one of the sunbelt states, and you'll get an idea of what frozen red looks like.

Okay, of course I'm being facetious; just not a fan of any of the frozen colours myself.

+1 looks horrible to me. Extra $5k to have your car look like it only has primer on it.

I think the frozen silver looks pretty cool. Maybe, it is a bit too similar to Moonstone?

Who says you can order both? I have seen plenty cars at the BMW Niederlassung München with both individual paint AND interiors.

Quite simply... IF you have the money BMW will build it for you. You might have to wait six months or so - for the car. But they WILL build it. Btw... for both individual paint and interior we are talking almost 10k euros ontop of the car's price.

I was only refering to US market. There are no other Frozen Grey (so far) M3s besides the 30 Special Edition E92 M3 which were offered last year. Elsewhere you can.
