Frozen Brilliant White M3 with Individual Cohiba Brown Interior

Hi Everybody, after 7 years not having a car I finally got one again. My last car was a Audi A3 Sportback with 3.2L engine and a few S-Line parts. It was always hard to find something which equally excited me. Good thing about not having a car is that I had a lot of rentals, so I could try lots of different cars over the years but none excited me the most as driving the new M3 and M4. The current 911 GTS was also shortly considered but just lacked the space and was also a bit over the budget. So I still have something to work forward to. At the beginning of the year I decided to buy a M3. First I wanted to order a new one but I had to delay the purchase a bit so no more new orders ware taken in Germany. A few weeks ago I stumbled upon this fully individual one with lots of M-Performance parts in Frozen Brilliant White (I felt in love with the color after seeing it on the IAA) I decided to get it. The car is only 1 year old with ~5.500 km (3.5k miles) The cohiba brown interior looked awful on the pictures so I almost closed the tab on it but I was happy to give it chance, because I absolute love the color in person.
Not the biggest fan on the M-Performance stripes on the side, but they're growing on me. They also look much better in person than on pics.
After picking it up on Friday i already put 1200km on it.

I'll shoot a few more and better pics in the next few days.

That Cohiba is underrated, I've only seen one other car with that interior color.

Thanks, the options are insane on that thing. Way more than I had in my original configuration.

I totally agree, on pictures it looks much brighter than it really is. And it looks gorgeous with the tobacco contrast stitching. I'll try to shoot some better ones in the next few days with a DSLR.

I guess the difference is the base color as the frozen effect is just in the clear coat (as far as i remember, please don't take my word for it). I was looking into it too as i've seen it in the UK visualizer but couldn't find any more details. Even in the BMW Individual Paintwork Guide there's only the Frozen Brilliant White. Maybe someone else can chime in.

Yeah, that’s what I thought, but your initial post title is Frozen White, so it threw me off. I think the difference is the base; Alpine White for FW, and Mineral White for FBW. Thanks!

I'm just lazy and always call it frozen white lol

If I had to guess though, I'd say that's most likely accurate.

The base for Frozen Brilliant White is Brilliant White not Mineral White (see here: http://www.bimmerpost.com/goodiesfor...work-Guide.pdf ). Brilliant White "sparkles" a little bit more and has this slight pearl effect, very hard to describe. Your dealer might have samples for both colors.

...and thanks to other pix, so all white colors:

Non-metallic:
Alpine White - the most white (everybody knows)

Metallic:
Brilliant White = Pearl White - the most white of metallic, a little pearl color
Mineral White - white, silver, platinium

I thought about it but I actually like it more like this, just gives it a little bit more contrast.
