There have been 3 Alpine White versions. Each one has replaced the previous rather than been a different option.
Alpineweiss - 1981 -1989
Alpineweiss 2 1989 - 1993
Alpineweiss 3 1994 - present
Alpineweiss - 146
Alpineweiss 2 - 218
Alpineweiss 3 - 300
I've now had 2 alpine white BMWs....I looked hard at mineral white this time but it really didn't interest me. It really just smacks of BMW getting annoyed that so many people are choosing white and not paying extra for a metallic finish.
Personally if I was respraying a car I would consider using Ford Frozen white. My Dad has just bought a new Focus in that colour and it is the brightest, whitest white I've ever seen on a car, I really like it. (The colour not the car!)
