2013 BMW M3 Frozen Edition

The BMW M3 has long been heralded as the mother of all driver’s cars; and with good reason, they are brilliant. The new M3 got some knocks from the purists for having a V8 engine, weighing too much, and being overloaded with gadgets. Under all of that though, is one great drive.

So the BMW M3 Frozen Edition at least sounds interesting. So what is it? Well it starts with the competition package which adds more sportiness to the M3. You’ll get your choice of three colors, one obviously being an icy blue looking thing pictured above, and matte black 19 inch wheels. The suspension gets some goodies in the form of electronic damper control, a slight lowering, a more aggressively tuned ECU and traction systems and oh yeah a six speed manual. No stupid DSG gear box here. Of course you will get your traditional smattering of carbon fiber and other goodies. All of this will run you about $76,000 and some change before options. I think it sounds interesting considering most special editions are nothing more then some badging and maybe an aero kit.
