First Real Life Look at Frozen Blue F10 M5 M Performance Edition

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
On show at Canary Wharf MotorExpo in London. I was more interested in the F30 330D personally, but M5POST members might be interested in this one... a Frozen Blue F10 M5 M Performance Edition.

If anyone wants any specific photos, just give me a shout. The car is here until Friday.

Nice color, but at some point I have to draw the line. $5000 for a paint job just so happens to be that point for me but I do like it.

Frozen is so played out.

I think the frozen look is not long for this world. It interesting only because its uncommon. It looks dull to me, and I cannot see it holding the same intersest 10 years down the road. I think it will be a very short fad.

As much as I love the matte look I would never pay the premium for the paint. My car has been wrapped both matte black and matte white, I got very sick of both colors in less than a year, with a wrap that's fine as I just pulled it off, however with paint your stuck... Def not a long term paint option.

Anyone know for us that are ordering in the U.S., is it possible to order those matt black rims instead of the 20's that come with it. Im getting the alpine white and those matt rims would look sick

No offense, but flat/matt paint looks like just washed 20 year old car to me.

Matt clear bra makes more sense than factory matt paint imo.
