Production Stop on all Frozen Colors for 2014 model year!?

I have been trying to order a new 2014 Frozen White M5 from my local dealer in TN and they have just let me know that the inside BMW reps in Germany say there is a production stop on all Frozen colors for the 2014 model year. They are telling me that so many customers are unable to understand how to maintain their Frozen color cars that BMW has decided to stop any further production of the Frozen colors.

Anyone else heard this information???

My understanding for frozen color is NOT to wax it. Other than that, just your ordinary car shampoo & wash are needed.

a lot of orders for 2014 model going through with frozen paint
so your source looks unreliable
why would bmw stop making extra money on paint job? if more people destroy their frozen paint, bmw makes more money on repainting!

They did this last year from October to December. They did a whole bunch of Euro special edition frozen M3s and put the North American frozen colours on hold.

true that
they introduced frozen red, blue, white m3's and m5's during that time (at least for UK)
however frozen red is still japan red with transparent matt wrap on top, which makes car look frozen red
