Yuck. I would have to get a large discount to take a frozen paint job. Don't see the draw. Different yes, better no.

Are the blue and white M Performance Editions a true frozen paint job or wraps as well? If it's truly a wrap, then that really cheapens the car...

On the F80, they better rectify this since we're dealing with FI, and "performance" ought to imply more power and/or better brakes, suspension, less weight, etc.
+10

Interior's really sharp but not even an M Performance Exhaust... sigh. Why is this called an M Performance Edition?

The real name is ///M Performance Stickers Edition

What's so special.. I like the blue frozen better.. Red looks.. Umm retarded.. The color, dsc+, sticker and door sill makes it as a performance marketing crap? Geez.. iLike but too pricey.. I don't see any a significant difference to justify the price than the current M3!!

Looked like crap when the press photos were revealed, and now in real life shots. I'd rather put my money towards an individual color.

Ok I thought I was missing something but you're right, this doesn't make sense. Don't get me wrong, this is cool and I'm not trying to offend the guy who bought this car but what is going on at M ladies and gentlemen?

With the frozen red it looks as if it has faded paint..

Also..since the red edition is actually a wrap....I wonder what is the original colour underneath?

So... will I be the first to think that the 6 series lurking behind here is more interesting subject matter than the Performance paint upgrade edition?

Looks really clean.
Wow never noticed it, i think id chose that over the m3
