Short Video of G80 M3 in Frozen Brilliant White

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Found this short clip on YouTube, and frozen brilliant white is looking really good here, especially with the wheel combo. Makes me want to bite the bullet and get the frozen paint!

I always loved the color of my Mineral White 2011 E92 M3. This Brilliant White seems to be even better?

.. very tempted to get Frozen Portimo Blue... has anyone had experience with frozen paint? Would your average paint shop be able to handle the finish in the event of damage?

I have a frozen white e92. Most maintenance friendly paint out there but hard to match if it gets damaged

Thanks Garret, have you ever had to have a panel repainted?

I'm trying to reconcile Frozen and Brilliant in the same sentence.

I have a M5 with frozen red, and I'm extremely happy with the look of the car,.it's take the car to a whole different level. Taking care of of the paint is rather easy, the car doesn't get dirty as much a regular paint, and most of the time just rinsing the car with water do the trick.
I found the best way to clean the paint is by hand free car wash. You should not rub the paint. Either air dry or gently dry with a regular towel ( I was told not to use microfiber). I spent $300 for a layer of ceramic coating and It's worth every penny. it's give extra protection and and you don't need to dry the car after the wash.
Repair is the different story. I have a friend with a frozen grey M5 and had to repair the fender after he hit a deer. He had to send the car to a special shop, but his insurance picked up the tab. Bottom line is if you have a good insurance, don't worry about it.
If you can afford a M car, I think couple of grands for frozen paint would very well worth it.

If you see a M car with frozen paint in your rear view mirror you get what I'm talking about!

So gas station car washes are a no go then? Lately I've gotten too lazy to wash it myself.

Find a hand free car wash in your neighborhood, they are popping up everywhere. I don't take any car to gas station car wash, spinning pads can pick up sands from other cars, and you are done. I learned it in a hard way on my 2011 m3.

Yes frozen is a satin finish. I agree it's very low maintenance. A really good body shop should be able to fix any damage. I love mine also. Recommend ppf for the hood, front bumber and mirrors. Ceramic coat the whole car also. Makes it even easier to keep clean.

Not a fan, I think the G8x works best with darker colors.

I'm a huge fan of white M cars btw.

Geez I was just posting that matte automotive finishes are passé, then this thread comes along and I'm not so sure. I don't even like white cars!

Hate the contrasting (machined?) lip on the wheels. Personally, I'd have to paint them so they're monochromatic.
