Aw. Makes car look bigger and wider than darker color coupe.
Also shows body shape better with aw.
With darker color, it's harder to notice 335is body kit like unique rear diffuser and front grills.

i feel the same exact way about how the darker colors hide the details of the car
pulling the trigger with the aw
btw i would love to see some pictures of your car

That's a tough decision. I had to choose between the two and I went with space gray. Space gray is not that dark so you can still see the details.
Both look nice, but its personal preference. I would just go with one that has all the options you want if you're 50/50 on the color.

I've got space gray with black interior... Absolutely love it!

Biased answer, but I'd go space gray. I see way more AW's on the road than I do SG's.

Although at the end of the day, it's really what you want!

I have neither, but I have seen space grey in person and feel that it is light enough to still show all the details of the car. The only problem I have with alpine white is how dirty noticeable dirty is on the car, and when buying aftermarket body parts Alpine white is the hardest color to match.

AW is a very nice color specially if you go B/W theme. I just thought that there's too many AW on the road. I have not seen too many SG on an 'IS' though. So my vote goes to SG.

Go with SG. You won't regret it. I've had mine for 6 months now and it totally rocks! I have not seen any SG on the road besides mine so thats ur best bet.

Nah its really not, I have a DD SGM and its stays pretty clean, also my dad has a Silver Grey Met 5 Series and his is the same way, stays clean.

I had a Mystic M3 and that thing showed everything fast.

Just order a car exactly how you want it and you will have it in 6-8 weeks. Done.

Bmw of Escondido has an AW but I am not sure of the interior color because it is not listed on the website. I got mine from Sheri Martinez. She was great. You might want to call her unless it is too far. Also, some dealers do dealer trades.

Space gray but only because I like darker colors. Mine is Black sahpire, and it is true as most pointed out it hides 335IS details.

If you go with SG, get two tone light interior. Black interior will get old soon! Mine is Oyster/Balck, and it really brightens up the interior.

With AW Brown/Black interior looks incredible..
