Frozen White in So Cal

Greetings! Recently picked up a '13 Frozen White, saw the color in person and just fell in love! So far the maintenance on the frozen paint hasn't been as bad as I thought it was going to be. Was in an '11 M3 AW for about 2 months before trading it in for the frozen. Before that, I had an '08 Exige S240, but decided on a 4 seater to cart around the family. Located in Irvine, hope to see you guys around!

And the Exige...sigh...

hey, welcome to the forum....Frozen White is gorgeous. this is the special edition of 2013 ,right? so you have extended black leather plus matching white stitching ...what a great combo.

what else did you get on it...DCT or 6MT?

we do have a running thread here where Frozen car owners get together to tell their real world experiences in taking care of this paint job...as opposed to a lot of the myths out there.

when you get a chance, stop by and tell us your story...

Thanks for the warm welcome. I did a full detail today using the Dr. Beasley system for Matte paint. Few new pics...

Yep! However the extended black leather is hardly visible, but the matching white stitching is a pretty nice touch. I've been in MT most of my life, so decided to try out the DCT...that and I wasn't able to find ANY frozen white's in a 6MT. Thanks, I'll check out that thread. I want to write up a review on the Dr. Beasley matte kit..works incredible and took out several scuffs, hard water stains, and contaminants that the normal BMW shampoo couldn't.

The first pic is in the Woodbury shopping center off Sand Canyon, and I believe the second was somewhere in Foothill Ranch after the Oakley Mfest premeet.

Very cool pics Akioo,

I'm in Portola Springs. It's great to see a unique M3 pop up in the neighbourhood...I think there are at least 15 M3's and 2 1M's in Woodburry & Portola Springs. I've run into a dozen owners over the past few years @ the Sand Canyon Chevron or Ralph's parking lot

I'm at both of those places regularly! It's just across the street, I'm sure we will run into each other. We should get the local M's together for some pizza and beer one of these days. There are 2 other AW's in my community, one is a SA at Irvine BMW and helped me get into my first M3.
