If you could go back and get another color, what would it be.

I know some peoples likes and dislikes change over time, and I was wondering if any of you guys wish you could go back and get you car in another color. For me I would. I got silver and if I could do it again I would get black.

White all the way. My wife just got a new white car, and I washed it for her after a week and drooled over being able to not bother with water spots/spider scratches. Black is horrible to me. It looks great if you never drive it, that's it.

If I can do it again, I would definitely had got Alpine White. I was actually torn between black and white in the beginning but ultimately went for black. Now when I see an AW I notice it shows more detail on the car than black and I learned white is easier to maintain. I regret not getting coral red seats either on my car lol.

I keep telling myself that I'll never buy another black car, but I keep buying them. I love AW but I think that color looks best on E92s. My next car will probably be an AW E92 M3 (or M4, depending on when they are released). I do also like some of the limited edition colors (lime yellow, orange, Dakar yellow, or any of the frozen paints).

If I had to get another E90 I would go for BSM instead of JB as the metallic paint doesn't seem to require as much work (see, there I go picking black again. Sigh).

Id love Alpine white or Mystic blue.. Jet black is a son of a bitch to maintain.

Frozen Black until I convince myself that a Frozen paint job is too hard to care for and the problem of collisions and respraying.

Then I would go with Monte Carlo Blue M5 FTW!

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.
