How rare is 2014 Frozen Gray ext with black/red int.?

Found a car '14 with 42k miles. The stitching inside is all red. Lovely car. How rare is it? How many units made in 2014? Thank you in advance.

I assume that is a BMW Individual build car as you don't see many with the two tone leather with contrast stitching.

Looks like a decent spec. Good that it's got the B&O too.

Thanks for the response. Any way to tell if this an actual matte paint on the outside and not a wrap. Also the black wheels, exhaust tips came with the car and not put on after?

That's a really unique and cool spec. If you're looking at pics online, check the door jambs, the trunk lifter arms, and under the hood for a different color. Those are areas that usually won't be wrapped. I'd be willing to bet it's genuine BMW Frozen Paint through BMW Individual. That looks like thousands of dollars worth of customized leather and deviated stitching through BMW Individual, which is usually accompanied by Individual Paint.

That's the first F10 I've seen with contrast stitching other than white. It looks like different colors was an option. I wonder why more cars weren't ordered this way.

Unless it was ridiculously expensive to do which I'd have no doubts about.

Cool car it is! Would it hold better value than others? The price is around $42 with 42k miles, two previous owners. Each kept it for around 3yrs.

I think it would follow the same depreciation curve as other f10 m5s, but I would imagine (and since I own a Frozen Brilliant White F10 M5 I hope) a Frozen Paint car would sell for more than a standard color. You won't get the $5,000 extra BMW charged for it when new, but at least to me it was worth a little extra vs. a standard paint job.

I guess the value is retained on a higher scale to a retail buyer verus a wholesaler who may not even know or give value to the $5k paint job. In addition I am also thinking that there may be a camp of thought in the used market where people may proactively do not want to deal with the extra work maintaining the matte finish.
