Frozen Black F10 M5

I haven't seen it on here yet so I thought I'd post some pictures of what I found at my local BMW center. Sorry for the bad photos, it's hard to take a photo of...

(own thread jack)

My C.A. was also telling me that they have coming in the 1st (non confirmed)e92 M3 coming in with the Santerini Blue color in the U.S. and also a frozen Blue e92 M3 as well...

Also some other interesting cars they told me was coming in, a Fire Orange F13 M6, a frozen bronze 650i gran coupe

Not feeling the frozen on bulky cars. Stealth fighters ok. boxy sedans, not so much. Maybe I'm just old fashioned but it looks cheaper to me. Like someone forgot to put the clearcoat or gloss in the paint.

I think the other frozen colors look better on the M5. The frozen blue and silver look much better.

Also, there are at least two other Santorini Blue M3s that have been posted on M3post. So this dealer will not have the first or only one in the US or North America.

I think it'll look pretty badass without all those tacky chrome bits! Any idea on the sticker price?

Very different but my beef with frozen colours is they are nice, just not 5k nice. Know what I mean?

+1, but particularly the black.

The frozen colour is kind of cool for a week then I would become tired of it. The dealer where I got my M5 in May 2012, had a Frozen Black brought in for stock and as of a couple of days ago they still have it and can't sell it even at a reduced price. Thats going on 8 months sitting on the showroom floor
