    2010 Leipzig Auto Show: BMW M3 Coupe in Frozen Grey Metallic

    I haven't quite decided if I like this color or not, but it looks pretty cool with black wheels:

    The Frozen Grey Metallic mate finish is slowly becoming one of the most popular Individual colors and our favorite one so far. It is based on the “regular” Space Grey Metallic paint with a special matte clear coat (FF95-0550) added for the matte finish.

    Love this colour. I saw the frozen grey at the Dubai Autoshow. It is really nice.


    Re: 2010 Leipzig Auto Show: BMW M3 Coupe in Frozen Grey Metallic

    I never understood why car manufacturers don't offer matte colors more often. Would have loved to order my X5M in black matte.

    Because their 'focus group' doesn't like it. Simple.

    Had manufacturers invite us here to their focus group, pretty sure they will be making 500hp everything, coupe, sedan, convertible, suv, strollers........

    With exotic colors and also consideration for babies and families.


    Re: 2010 Leipzig Auto Show: BMW M3 Coupe in Frozen Grey Metallic

    Saw both a 997.2 and an R8 5.2 with HRE P40 in matte black tonight The R8 with carbon blade was spectacular! The colour made the overhang disappear.

     jajaja disturbingly true.


    Re: 2010 Leipzig Auto Show: BMW M3 Coupe in Frozen Grey Metallic

    I think the true reason why manufacturers don't make more cars in matte colour is because those paint don't last as long and the maintanence is quite different from regular paint.  In fact when my friend and I tried ordering the TT RS in matte through their individual program, we were told that Audi will not do that for certain countries just yet as they can't guarantee the longevity.

    R8 Matte Black.jpg Sorry for the poor pic. I assume it was matte from the factory as I could not feel any foil edge. Once again, in the flesh it was spectacular
