Absolutely hate it. Or love it with a passion. It's definitely an easy color to clean and it always has a shine even when it's a bit dirty. It's a winner to me.

Black BMW's will always get love. I have Space Grey now and I love it. Don't worry it'll def grow on you. I was actually in the same situation as you when I was car shopping. I was interested in a Black/Coral Red E92, but the price wasn't worth it just for the color so I waited a little longer and ended up with my Space Grey/Coral Red and I have no regrets.

Space grey is easily one of the nicest colours you can get IMO, it looks great in the day AND the night. Most other colours only look good in either day OR night (e.g. my Hellrot looks incredible in sunlight, great when overcast, but red always looks lame at night).

SGM wasn't my first choice but it grew on me (quickly). It looks amazing with matte black kidneys and oyster interior.

SG w/ saddle brown interior here. The exact combo I wanted. Took a lot of searching, giving up, then stumbling upon the perfect car.

Black is great for a garage queen, but horrible to keep clean as others have mentioned.

Yeah you don't want black. Definitely a PITA to keep clean. SG is my third choice for best color after LMB and Valencia Orange.

They aren't slinging Kias, they're selling BMWs. A prudent dealer realizes this and is going to wait for the right buyer since it is not a mass market car. The people that look for these cars typically have an exact interior and exterior color in mind, and just wait until one appears. Having purchased a car in a color that you didn't even like, you would be the exception to the rule I guess.

PS- Space Gray is a great color. Enjoy your car!

Space grey was not my favorite when I bought it, but it really grows on you. If I buy another E90, I probably wont buy anything except space grey.

Also If you detail it with clay bar, polish, sealer, caruba wax etc, it just looks awesome. everybody who sees my car thinks its brand new, and its a 2010.

I think your wife needs to get her eyes checked OR you need a new wife.

I'd go with the later ; ).
