It doesn't seem to be in the main literature in the UK. Also has anyone actually seen it on an F10 M5 (up close), if so thoughts?

Thanks

If it helps, my dealer said he just received a frozen black one and thought it looked awful. In the UK I would stick to 'unfrozen'. Chavs up and down the country are wrapping their fiesta xr2is in these frozen colours. They are terrible. I am sure in some countries, they are still only used on quality cars, but in the UK no.

I agree the Matt wraps look nasty now, the novelty element of these has well and truly expired. The frozens IMO do look a tad different and I saw the M5 concept car (albeit in pics) at Shanghai I think where BMW presented it frozen or shadow silver I think they called it and it looked cool and pretty mean. But in the flesh these things can look different and you need balls of steal to spec one either way! Knowing me I'll go for the silver or black (yours looks great btw without the chrome side surrounds. I'd like to get a forged look on the 20" wheels, shame BMW just do the shiny metal wheel...

Also is anyone aware of a performance pack on the agenda for the f10? Have heard a rumour...

Agree, the matte paint took off in the mid-decade, been overdone. I saw a matte silver F10 M5 at the L.A show, made the car look too plain in my opinion. The F10 M5 looks great in; azurite, alpine white, and the blue color which I have no idea what its called, and I am sure other colors which I have not seen in person state side.

The other day I saw a frozen black C63 AMG coupe, it was real stealthy looking but didn't have that luxury/wow factor.

In Italy it costs €3300 so a wild guess would be around 3000 in UK.

Frozen Silver L.A Auto Show

Saw it in person! For me I prefer a more vibrant color but its really up to preference of the person buying the car. Its a 50/50 kinda thing if you get what I mean.

These are two photos of an F11 Msport in Frozen Grey I saw in Germany.
Not bad.
I am sure that Frozen Silver looks awesome on the M5.
