There's nothing terribly new at BMW's Canadian International Auto Show display, but that's not to say there isn't anything worth looking at. True, it's the Canadian unveiling of the new 6 Series Convertible, but it was already unveiled in Detroit over a month ago, and isn't terribly exciting anyway.
What is worth checking out is a very special Frozen Black Competition Package M3. Initially, BMW unveiled the limited edition Frozen Gray M3, priced extravagantly due to its exclusivity.
While there isn't a specific number of limited edition Frozen Black models, the paint color is only available as an add-on option for those who also pick the Competition package, which includes a 10mm lower suspension, lighter 19-inch wheels, a remapped Electronic Damping Control system and more aggressive Dynamic Stability Control. That alone should make it a rare model.
Pricing for both the Competition Package and the matte-black paint comes out to a pretty shocking $9,900 (CDN). The competition package alone is $2,500 U.S., but BMW has never mentioned a U.S. pricing for the paint.
