Space gray with coral red interior. It's like Jesus in a tuxedo t-shirt.

I love the alpine white... was my first choice but i went with Black Sapphire Metallic.

when i was buying these were my only 2 choices. alpine white is just sexy... Black Sapphire Metallic is a goddess when she's clean. even with no mods Black Sapphire Metallic gets looks.

I think space gray is the sexiest... That's what I bought my car in

Alpine white is as equally sexy

What is wrong with red? It's the perfect sports car color.

False! When montage blue is properly waxed it's faster!

Black Sapphire Metallic and Alpine White are my two favourites. Who can say no to a BMW in ANY colour?

The wifey has a black 328 convertible. I spend hours cleaning it and basically have no more time left to clean my ride so easy choice for me, I picked up a silver titanium 330i. Takes me less than half the time to get it cleaned compared to the wifey's car.

Buying a used car usually means you have to compromise. I've got TiAg. I like it a lot and it doesn't show the dirt.

Jet Black looks amazing...for about an hour after polishing it. If I had a garage queen it would be jet black.

But AW is just so dang clean and stays that way for a week (in dry weather). Plus I like the way white shows off a car's lines. Got to give my vote to AW.

AW of course was my choice but I really like LM Blue and Space Grey. Red with black wheels is a great look as well. To each their own. Black too when clean!

When cleaned, polished and waxed, a black car can look so amazing.

Unfortunately though, you can see all imperfections with black and you have to clean it very regularly.

I would probably recommend that a black car should be fully detailed maybe once a year to keep the paint looking as good as possible.
