At Dinglofin we were told that all frozen colours are just standard colours without the last ply of glossy lacquer. During the visit of the pain shop you can see that all the cars are with frozen colour after 4 plies of colour. The fifth ply is the hi gloss one. On the end BMW paint less and ask much more money to do that.
Frozen Silver = Titan Silver without gloss ply
Frozen Grey = Space grey without gloss ply
Frozen Blue = Deep Sea Blue without gloss ply
etc.
