BMW worldwide configurator 6 Grand Coupe.
Individual colors available, frozen grey, frozen silver, frozen bronze.
The frozen color scheme is alive and well.

Frozen Bronze

As show in following the link of OP's first post, frozen paint was a $5k option as line item on window sticker.

so is frozen gray still a base coat / clear coat paint?

also -- I wasn't aware that "special colors" could be ordered, is that just an extra $5k for any individual color?

It still has a clear coat. It's just that the paint is not shiny underneath.

I like the wheels a lot, but not sure about black on a 7. They remind me of something Brabus did for Mercedes a while ago and they're nearly identical to the ones on the M3 GTS, but in 14 spoke, not 16:

I agree. Those black wheels are nice, but I wouldn't throw them on a 7. Actually, I like the way the chrome OEM wheels match up with the Frozen Grey on that showroom car.
