Remember waiting just about forever for tickets to see your favorite band, and then remember the ticket vendor telling you that all of the good seats had already been taken? It wouldn’t be such a horrible scenario if in the back of your head you didn’t absolutely know that ticket scalpers hadn’t come in and swiped all of the good seats just to turn around and sell them for a crazy profit. Yeah, that’s about the type of scenario we are dealing with right now.

Back in June, BMW announced that they were producing 30 examples of their limited Frozen Gray BMW M3 fitted with a 4.0-liter, 414 HP V8 engine equipped with BMW’s M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) which lowered the 0-60mph acceleration time of the M3 to 4.5 seconds from 4.7. That, however, wasn’t the special part. This BMW M3 had a very unique paint job consisting of a special matte-gray paint with a deep metallic luster. It may be a pain to take care of, but consumers just about ate this thing up and the special edition was gone in 12 minutes with 50 alternate names taken within the next hour.

Yep, that baby was gone. No way of getting one. No way at all... except if a dealer hadn’t swiped one up and is now selling it for a $21,300 profit.

Vista BMW/MINI in Coconut Creek, FL has a Frozen Gray BMW M3 in its possession which it is now selling for $98,900, and their including the one day enrollment in the BMW Performance Driving School that was part of the original sales deal. Isn’t that nice of them? So, in case you are interested in taking this one of 30 limited edition models home with you after the world had thought it was all over, then you better give them a call and produce the cash necessary to be one of the elite few.

I agree how does owning like the most revered sports coupe ever make you look like a jerk.

The car was a pathetic excuse for a limited edition to begin with. It’s not like the car was a CSL, GTS, or GTR. And besides, TM is a very respectable BMW tuning/racing shop, they’ll take good care of it. Better a rare car be "ruined" on the racetrack than in the hands of some 18 yo w/rich parents.
