Which Color for E91

Hi,

I actually have an E91 since 6 weeks, but unfortunately I had an accident last week and now the drivetrain has some deformations.

Now I am looking for a new E91 335d, but I don't know which color to take.

So I am asking you, which of these 5 colors would you take:

Le mans blue (this one I had)
Black
Silver
White
Sparkling Graphite

I want the E91 with the M-package, so there are no so many colors available.

THX for your help

I also have seen one with the sparkling graphite color with blacklines yesterday on the motorway and it looked amazing.

I also will put Ac Schnitzer springs on it and I have ordered the 101 M rims, but I didn't get the chance to put them on.

Thanks for polling more, since tomorrow in the afternoon i will hopefully sign for the new e91.

Years ago (pre-internet), Mercedes-Benz did a safety study of the relative visibility of various car colors.

The most visible were combinations like a white body with a chartreuse or orange hood and deck lid. The most visible solid color under most conditions -- snowstorms excepted -- was white.

White reflects more light than any other color.

Do you know where I can find some pictures of an E91 in sparkling graphite with an M kit, or with an E9x with the M-package, or even better can you post some links?

Some of my friends say that I should take white, which I also find amazing, but the thing that worries me is that it maybe will be hard to sell the car after 5 or 6 years (perhaps then white will be out of fashion).

For a 335d E91 in Euro, LMB. I like white, but it's too close to a refrigerator. LMB is unique to M-sport.
