Color question!

Just wanted some opinions on 3 color combos for a 3 series sedan!

1. Black sapphire w/ saddle

2. Monaco blue w/ grey

3. White w/ saddle


Does anyone have any pictures of the Monaco/Grey combo? I have yet to see that!
Thanks in advance

I'm a big fan of black sapphire w/ saddle. A friend of mine has a 328i coupe with that color combo and its gorgeous. The others arent bad, but I like the first one best.

Not a fan of white or gray - go for the black/saddle. Like VTE said - the two-tone interior is hot!

Here's a question: I have always gotten grey cars, it is my ultimate color. I would love to get AW, but I just am not sure if I will begin to not like the fact that it isn't a metallic. Has anyone ever gotten tired of their AW car?

IMHO, white is not a color, but the lack therof,contrary to the physical nature of white light . Black is really impossible to keep clean for more than 15 mins. If you have been used to silver and gray cars you very well might curse the day you got a black car. Monaco would be MY choice between the 3 combos but I actually like Lemans Blue better.

I just bought a Monaco Blue - Saddle. I saw the coral red in person and thought it was too bright. The fox red in the M3 is a much nicer red in my opinion.

Has anyone seen Space Gray with Saddle, that was another consideration for me. Easier to keep clean than the Monaco Blue.

I'm going to disent on the blue/gray combo. I have something similar - Montego Blue and Dakota Gray interior. I love the contrast between the interior and the blue exterior. Also, there is quite a bit of contrast inside because the black dash sets off the gray accents.

The gray has a blueish hue - almost a quartz color. Its pretty easy to live with.
