Frozen Orange USA?????

Wanted First Edition Frozen Orange but it was never available in USA. Dealerships offer no help and BMW customer service is useless. Got frozen gray, couldn't wait any longer. Can someone please explain?

I'm not in the US but there's not too much to explain is there? You said it's not available in the US and custom paint isn't a Z4 possibility so....no frozen orange :

The frozen grey is classy colour but I know what you mean, the frozen orange looks great.

I'm in WNY and obviously wouldn't be driving this in the winter but, is the frozen grey still a rather difficult paint to maintain? I saw things when the frozen palette first came out and you had to use special soap, couldn't do this, that, etc. Still the case?

Frozen gray is satin not that flat. Easy to take take of so far using Dr. Beasley's Matte paint care. Regular car shampoo with no wax is fine.

So nobody knows why frozen orange isn't available in USA. Z4 gets no love on forums

Yes i tried to order it a year ago. Never available in usa. I wanted first edition frozen orange. No US allocation. Plenty of other first editions here in the US, but not Z4

I'm not being a complete "D" by posting this...that would be my first choice in ext. color. Gorgeous.
