How is this possible? $15k for Frozen Red!

I'm flipping through CarGurus just daydreaming about the stable of M3s I'll collect some day, and I see this Frozen Red E92. The description says the Frozen Red Individual is $15,400! I figure it's a typo. Then, I see an image of the window sticker.

WTF? How is this justified? Is that level of exclusivity worth that kind of upcharge? I realize there no "right" answer to that question, but I was floored. Just for kicks, here's the car:

It's hard to imagine anyone wanting to fork over $15k for that paint, but I guess to that one buyer "it's special."

This got my attention from your post more than the frozen M3:

What year did you have your Bav? My father purchased a new '72 Bavaria (my avatar), I got my license in it in 1974, and I later bought it from him in 1980. I owned it for the following 14+ years. I had a wicked motor built by Korman in 1981, triple webers, etc, and did the suspension, wheels, Recaros, etc. It was a super fast, well-handling car that I tracked and autocrossed like a mad man all through the 80s.

The Frozen editions are even more limited than the Limerock edition. It wouldn't surprise me that the package is in the $15k range since my Limerock's Monroney sticker quotes the LRP trim as a $10k option.

Either way don't cry, buy!

The, unthinkable, alternative would be a fart can F series fake M and who in their right automotive mind would ever sign up for that piece of shiyat????

I bought the Bavaria in 1976. It was my first non-American car and I loved it. Right up until the head cracked. It was the first car I drove faster than 100 because it was so effortless!

Makes more sense now.

I think they just had black exhaust tips on the standard muffler, not MPE!

I came across this car a few times in my search for a MR e92. Looks great but still can't justify the price. Here's the full listing for anyone interested:

This is just sad. I'd take MB red over this any day. It's hard to imagine someone spending this much on an E9X m3 that's not a limerock. Anyone looking to drop that much on an M car is going to end up with a used F8X M3/4. They need to drop the price by like $5k+. But the frozen red does grab people's attention so I hope the future buyer is happy with their purchase

To each their own. Would I kill for a frozen blue e92? Of course. But as a reasonable human being you have to justify the money. Will someone buy that car? Maybe, possibly. That 13-15k premium over other zcp e92s could pay for a lot of smiles per gallon that's for sure

You need to split that commission with me. I had the link in my first post.
