I'm currently in Houston and thought I'd share:

This isn't my favorite 6er, but I figured I'd share the pics since I've yet to see this car in pictures other than the press release. They had it marked at $101k. Can't fathom why the left off the LEDs.

I also saw a B7 in the service drop-off. Such a cool car.

Given how much I love Titanium Silver, I would have figured I'd love the Frozen version. Not sure about it, though. (My dealership has a Frozen White M3 on the floor that looks awful.)

Really? I would have thought the frozen white would look good, but never have seen one in person. I never liked frozen silver, but I am a big fan of frozen gray.

Frozen definitely gets points for being different. I think the Frozen Bronze is a cool and unique color, and there's just something menacing about matte black.

I think the Frozen Bronze is gorgeous. I'm not really sure about any of the other Frozen colors, except for maybe the Frozen Gray.

I like it - but such a hassle to own a matte paint job. Any small scratches can't be polished out and can end up requiring entire-panel resprays. Coolest matte paint job I've seen in person was a S550 Designo edition with matte white pearl

Yeah, the maintenance / OCD factor is what would keep me from ever owning one.

I had a frozen blue Mercury when I was a kid. Back then we just called it dull paint.

Hahaha. It's kinda like worn jeans that are faded and ripped. The obvious question is, why would you buy new jeans that are already worn out? Same thing here - who forgot to put on the clear coat before it left the factory?

Who knows what those crazy kids will come up with next...

I already do the OCD thing with my nice cars, so I doubt this will be much different. I will just use touchless washes and more hand washes too.
