Estoril blue or dakar yellow would be my choices although you could argue that both colours would be more suitable to the m3 shape.

And pics of dakar yellow: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=741313

Every second car you see on the roads is white with black wheels and a black roof and/or mirrors etc.

Do something more original.

Mineral white is very subtle, but does look fantastic when the sun shines. If done correctly MW is very technical to apply and needs to be built up in several layers. Id have thought it cost more then AW?

Personally I'd have a black roof with either option.

MW





AW




Using the wrong products if you're not getting good depth from the mineral white. I have had both and the MW looks fantastic compared to the AW.
