When I was looking for a CPO manual 328xi coupe in 2009, there were only like 8-10 listed nationally at any given time. So I wasn't going to be picky on colors.
But I'm damn happy I landed a Space Gray. I never wish or second-guess it was another color. It's not that I don't like other colors like Alpine White (like my 02 325ci vert) or various shades of blue, but SG on an E92 is perfect. This marketing picture just nails it for me.
07 328xi coupe SG/Dakota leather, 6-speed manual, sport/premium/cold
02 325Cic vert AW/Montana leather, 5-speed manual, premium/removable hardtop
93 850Ci Oxford Green/Parchment, auto
71 Buick Riviera, 455 V8 land yacht
