To achieve this luster, a special BMW-developed silk matte clear coat is applied over the Black Metallic base coat. BMW Individual’s Frozen paints meet or exceed all BMW standards for durability and longevity, and feature a full factory warranty. Special care guidelines are provided to customers and authorized BMW centers to prevent the finish from becoming glossy.

    Smile Special Edition - Frozen Black BMW M3 for U.S.



    Hello guys, I want to show you some of the new details about this new special edition of BMW M3, namely Frozen Black. The car comes with the current engine from the stock BMW M3, 420hp and 400 nm. Also the car has a Drivelogic M transmission and reaches an acceleration of 4,5s (0-62mph). My opinion is that BMW has done a great job because the M3 was a succesful one in past, is in present and will be in future. So sexy and aggresive!

    I had a black turbo eclipse that had a black primered fender that i just sprayed down with tire wet to make it match the rest of the glossy car. It was cheaper than getting it painted

    I hope this is the special US model BMW has been talking about. Total yawn, since it's been available in the rest of the world forever now.

    Well, this is an unfortunate turn of events. First it was "frozen" gray and now this atrocity. Oh well, I guess money really can't buy taste.

    this is off-topic, but what is your lighting setup, and where'd you get the lights??(heads and tails) cant tell if they're stock or aftermarket.

    Slick, but I'm not sure that is going to age well.

    So for an extra $10-15k you get what? The same motor as any other E9x M3, a slightly different suspension, and a Hot Rod Magazine "dry lakes special" rattle-can paintjob? That flat thing has been done to death in the magazines, and its not as cool as people make it out to be. On a '49 Merc, sure, but coming from the factory like that? BMW has come out with some stunning colors over the years but I guess they just ran out of ideas. I lol'd when I saw that "special care guidelines are provided to customers and authorized BMW centers to prevent the finish from becoming glossy."

    The interior is nice, except for the cliche carbon fiber and the 1980's Jensen-style speaker grilles. And the contrast stitching doesn't look as good without a blue thread running through with the red. Kind of reminds me of the black- or red-accented Roundels people put on their cars. Neat for a few seconds, but then I'm left wondering "why?"

    Overall, this car looks like it should have the decklid replaced with a couple of huge fuel tanks, put in a kiddie seat to hold your Australian Blue Heeler, and don't forget some Dinky-Di dog food and lots of shells for your sawed-off double barrel coach gun. Leather jacket is not included. And, watch out for Wez and the Humongus.

    I like it all and all, but not sure if I like the CF in the interior. Giving you the chance to paint it any color you want!! Its primered and ready!!

    I would still drive the hell out of it.
