Also I love your M3 and your color combo. I actually was on US ebay last week and there were 2 frozen black m3s on, which was incredibly surprising. I believe that they were new models, but their prices had been increased from msrp!

edit: I just checked and they're both gone!
While washing it today, when sprayed with water on clean surface the car looked a little like Black Saphire Metalic.

Your Frozen Black E90 looks awesome. Congratulations! I'm sure you're thoroughly enjoying it on the autobahn.

Chrome grille, crikey, I wouldn't let a frozen car leave the production line without a performance grille.

Beautiful car, congratulations. Somebody mentioned you had a baby as well? Congratulations on that also, now I know why you opted for the E90 over the E92 .

Just wondering - The owner of the Frozen Grey lives in Germany correct? Why does he have the amber reflectors on his front bumper? (Smoked out but you know what I mean)

I could not agree with you more. This was fixed day after the delivery.

Thank you. Yes, we had a baby back in April. You right about the sedan, but I also prefer the looks of E90 over E92.

The owner of the Frozen Grey E90 is an American and also the owner of Pentagon Car Sales (US Military Sales Program dealer). He had his FG couple months before the 30 Special Edition E92 M3 coupes came out. He had the very first US spec Frozen Grey M3. Tha'ts why you see the reflectors. It is US Spec car.

Thanks, but the autobahn about to end for few months. She's going in the garage for the winter.
