A BMW M3 Coupe on the official BMW USA web page is priced at $58,400. A nice Space Gray Metallic paint adds an extra $550. Okay, everyone, get out your calculators. That’s a total of $58,950. Now, let’s add taxes and a little extra for safe measure. That should bring you up to about $65K, give or take. Now we get to the good part. Recently BMW unveiled the Frozen Gray M3 Coupe priced at $77,600. Anyone else confused? Why would anyone buy the Frozen Gray coupe over a standard M3 Coupe that leaves you with an extra $10K in your pocket? Well, it’s probably because the Frozen Gray M3 is a limited edition with only 30 units being produced. That means 30 "lucky" customers will be the proud owners of a limited edition M3 which sold out in an unbelievable 12 minutes!

Now, if you regret missing out on the bids for one of these units then you are in luck. In true money-making fashion, one of those "lucky" people who bought the car is now selling it with an extra $2.5K mounted on the original price. The last Frozen Gray M3 is now on sale on eBay for $83,000. For those people out there stupid.... oh sorry... rich enough to buy it then have at it! Just remember the calculations done at the beginning of this article.

Whoever wrote this article is way behind on their cars and wrote an article that is not factual in any way....I pay attention to every BMW update happening, its my work...yes there are only 30 (US) but it comes as a package (meaning what it would cost to put it together separately would be much higher than the base msrp online) We are talking non-standard options DCT dual clutch transmition, premium package, carbon leather trim, technology package, heated seats, ipod adapter, enhanced premium sound, and one day at BMW track driving school. Add all that in "idiot" who wrote this article....ok so your slow so i did the math for you with those packages... total $74,205 which is not far from $77,600 considering a track day and limited edition as well as custom seats. Obviously you have no clue/ experience about BMW brand by thinking a corp. would overlook such a price gap and think you would be the genius to catch that, guess thats why your broke not working to put out new cars. Having a sales lisence I see a 85k M5 go for 105k with options....if ppl can’t do that get one used or search for a base but compare that to its competition you cheap ba*&trd, a comparable MB CL63 AMG has a base price over 101k without a single option your welcome for your Eur. Cars 101 lesson!!!!

BMW M3 will keep your garage for original will become classic collection will attend to Auto Show event future. I know BMW M and Mercedes Benz AMG are real muscle cars with Supercharger more than 400 horsepower, 200 mph and V8 since 1960’s and 1970’s American muscle cars about I know high performance BMW and Mercedes Benz are real enemy study to American muscle cars. I know BMW and Mercedes don’t tell to Audi and Porsche.

Well, I guess this color represents the Speed and power of a car. To be honest, I like it more if they turn this baby into racing red color.
