When I had a small bump on the rear bumper of my old 330i m sport touring, I was told that the primer colour was white tinted with blue?

It's white IIRC. Had a few stone chips on mine and they were definitely white.

Aye, of all the fecking undercoat/primers they had to choose the one which stands out the most against blue... white!

I'm c'mon, when using blue as a base colour you always use white on top to make it stand out, just do it on your PC!!. What possessed them do think this would be good for a primer, blue, brown or grey would be much better.
