The frozen paint finish isn't clear coated so it's not as durable as a regular paint finish. You're not even suppose to wax the finish. Not as durable, costs more, and since appearance is subjective, my vote is Meh. DCT slush box; this is supposed to make it good? Grow some balls, don't drink $5 lattes in your sled and get a 3 pedal M.

what so wrong about DCT , where I grew up you had to get your driver's licence with a manual,they would take to a incline and you had to use your clutch and gas pedal not to stall, every one wants a iphone 5 new tech. I have a SMG and having fun with it
