Hoping to order this color, what is it?

Read through the thread, one person suggested it, Francesca at Steve Thomas BMW also believes it is Frozen MCB. Just want to be certain, love the color and don't want any surprises when I order and pick her up. Original thread:

I wonder though if that's more a description of the color and not the actual name.

On the window sticker..it just lists "metallic paint"..anyways this is something that can be firmed up by a phone call or visit to a dealer//

Well he did talk to Steve Thomas who has seemed to confirm so not really sure why he's posting a thread about it.

I don't think you can get "just any" colour in frozen finish. I would imagine "frozen blue" should be enough of a cue that you want the same colour as the M3MP...

But if I had to guess. Yes. Definitely MCB. I don't think Estoril II is in the mix yet for the E9x. And it's much brighter than IB/LMB. So it must be MCB.

Sorry, it didn't say it anywhere on the thread and dealer didn't sound certain. Just wanted to make sure, thanks everyone.

MCB = Monte Carlo Blue

Normally only available on the edition models. Here is a pic of mine, metallic though, not frozen

^^Nice I have MCB as well

I am pretty sure its MCB but either way there is only one frozen blue color available through BMW right now so the color you see is what you will get.
