Do we know if Frozen dark grey paint will be available in the US?

It isn’t in the Pricing Guide.

Thanks

It's not even in European guides although it was presented by BMW Benelux. Maybe a lil later?

Nor is Frozen Orange available. I am sh*t outta luck with these color choices. I'm choosing between Frozen Portimao and Toronto Red. I dislike them both lol.

The Toronto Red looks very orange and washed out, does the body lines no justice. Frozen Portimao Blue is so dark for a blue.

Frozen portimao was like $3600ish? Why not just pay a bit more and go individual?

They won't approve it. My allocation is a November/December build. Believe me, I would pay $5,500 in a heartbeat for Fire Orange.

So what are you going to do? I'm waiting for more good images of the TR but based on what I can see on the X4M, I pretty much know what it will look like... and it will have that orange in it. Since it's not my DD, I'll likely opt for the SPY... different for sure, but I don't want a conservative color for my "fun" car!

Check Ronnie Fieg's Instagram, he's the owner of the brand Kith. I BELIEVE this to be TR, although I could be wrong. Seems to be missing the orange hues.

Yeah, I think that's TR. I have not seen this... thanks. You can search for TR and so many photos vary slightly... some more red, some more orange. It's so hard based on camera settings, light, saturation, etc. I'm fine with it... but I wish they would have offered a darker red, like the Aventurin.

Take a chance on SPY...you want an in your face intense color. SPY is the only one of the available colors that fit that bill. Better than to settle on something ordinary and bland as TR or FPB. Then do FO next time

Lucky for me I don’t want to live with an intense color even if I think they look great in the showroom.

I don't mind an intense color. I'm STILL trying to submit a FO individual request. The thing with SPY is I don't like it. I'm happy you do because I wish I did. I f***ing LOVE speed yellow, dakar yellow, but can't see myself in a SPY.

It's funny...i think you're being somewhat facetious haha, but I do consider TR and FPB to be bland color lol.

FO Individual, if they say no then YMB Individual, if they say no then a toss up between FPB and TR. That's where I'm at lol.

If Mexico blue is the same price as YMB, you should have a look at that. Itís a Porsche solid blue in the same spectrum as YMB but better IMO.
