We all know the story of the infamous Frozen Gray BMW M3 Limited editions, the exorbitantly expensive special color M3 that costs nearly $20,000 more than a standard car while delivering very little compared to a standard car.

One enterprising member of Bimmerforums managed to secure one of the 30 places made available by BMW North America, and like any good capitalist, attempted to sell his spot on the waiting list for $2500 to someone else with more money than brains. Originally, the poster was looking for $83,000, for his Frozen Gray Coupe,  or a $5,400 premium on a vehicle he hadn’t even taken delivery of.

Unfortunately for this gentleman, a BMW dealership employee who spoke with Jalopnik threw a wrench into his plans, by stating that slots cannot be sold, as the owner has 10 days to work out a deal with a local BMW dealership. If no deal is made, the next person in line will be contacted and offered the right to buy the car. Check out the original thread here.

    THANKS FOR THE PUBLICITY! IT IS STILL AVAILABLE, LISTED IN CLASSIFIEDS ON http://WWW.E46FANATICS.COM. DISREGARD THE RUMOR THAT “BMW EMPLOYEES” ARE SPREADING ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO TRANSFER THE RESERVE, DEALERS WERE A MAJORITY OF THE OTHER 29 RESERVATIONS AND THEY WANT TO DISCOURAGE ANY OF THE ONES THEY DID NOT RESERVE SO THEY CAN RESELL THEM AT THE DEALER FOR A MARKUP! MY DEALER CONFIRMED THIS
