i5 M60i in Frozen Deep Grey with Burgundy Red Interior!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Well.. Here it is!! Still can't believe the I5 M60i is going in the top 5 cars I have owned!! After getting an i5 M60i when wife's X7 was totaled , I decided to build one in the specs I wanted - cannot be happier with how it turned out. ONE complaint I still have is for this priced car - no soft closing doors!! Especially with kids, it can be a bit annoying - but humbled to be able to complain about $98k+ cars.

WOW. Amazing! Love and happily jealous of that red interior! That would look so amazing in my M60 Black Sapphire!!

Have you owned and lived with a matte/frozen paint job before?!?! :-O May the odds be ever in your favour

Freude am Fahren!

I really want the frozen grey, but I am afraid of the upkeep and messing up the paint.

Since it is a lease, is there a paint protection plan you can purchase that will avoid financial risk of ruining the finish?

In my head, you could essentially buy the wear/tear insurance that covers up to $5k of damage on the vehicle when turning in the lease - That would cover any scratches in the paint.

Gorgeous build… love the contrast between the frozen deep gray and burgundy interior The carbon fiber exterior pieces are great too! Maybe time to get the remaining items from the full M-Performance CF kit (front lip, skirts, rear diffuser) to match the mirrors, antenna, and spoiler

Do you plan on putting PPF? It would help with the upkeep of your frozen paint.

I did not, SWFL roads are pretty good, and it gives me another reason to pay attention other than the silver hairs on the road

Thank you - I love it. I thought about it, and was going back and forth - I was not totally in love with the front end, and figured that I would need to go all or nothing on the kit - I felt like adding the pieces I did, gave it a nice touch.. Even though it was a lease, and residualized - still extra change a month that I did not want to pay

Yes, I am going to do PPF on the front or ceramic possibly - need to decide how long I am going to keep this one for.

Very nice! Really loving that interior! I’m surprised that there is no soft close option.
