New member - help with colour choice for 335i MSport

Well this is my first posting on the forum

I have just ordered a new 335i MSport Coupe and am just debating what colour to go for

I have narrowed it down to either Mineral White or Space Grey with a red leather interior

I cannot decide which one to go for... Has anyone seen a 3 series in mineral white yet?

White was great, in 2007 and when the sun is shining down sunset bouvld. Get the Grey - classy for sure, looks great when clean and still looks decent dirty.

Space grey for sure. It is a great colour and looks particularly nice with the style 313 wheels. Go for it!

I recently went with mineral white.... as its a new colour its hard to find at the moment but I was lucky enough to see a M3 .... looked amazing .... has like a metallic shimmer which looked nice when the sunlight was directly on it .... it was different enough from AW .. not seen anything similar out there....

Do a search there are a few threads with pics...

Sapphire black or maybe White but I think that I looks good now but it will soon go out. Black is what I'd go for it won't date

Black is good, can't go wrong there.

it's a little hard to keep clean.. but looks good on BMW's.

I would not get black, white, or red(thats why they are free ) Hard to take care of.
I would get the space grey myself.

White = last year.

Hi,

White or Grey? I am sure you are after personal opinions from members to help you decide.

My experiences: I just bought another new car E90 LCI 2010 Space Grey 335 D MSport with quite a few options (I tend to change my cars every year or year and a half). I have had white, black, blue, red, silver and grey cars in the past.

Furthermore my favourite colour is a "darkish" blue metallic, so since 2000 every new BMW I have had was Topaz or Mystic (not Orient) blue until recently.

I discovered Space Grey! What a colour in the flesh and I believe it does not date as easily either holding good residuals in my experience as I discovered with the sale of my fully loaded 2008 X5 XDrive35 D MSport recently.

White was available but having had one previously, the moment we have a small shower or a minor stone chip, the dirt would show immediately after (similar to Black).

My choice is now grey as it wears well, looks fine after a shower and does not show the chips (I saw some used at the dealer forecourt) to make my mind up.

I would recommend seeing cars in person to help you decide.

Best of luck

The medium hue of space grey + red interior is awesome; the red really sets it off. White + red is excellent too, and while I do love the combo, I cannot deny it has a "daddy's girl" feel to it. I also see the white + red as a beach combo more than a city combo.

White + Red = bold, playful/cutesy, summery, collegiate, a small bit feminine (that's not to say a bloke shouldn't choose it)
Grey + Red = bold, sophisticated panache, adult, masculine (that's not to say a gal shouldn't choose it)

I'm sure you enjoy either combo; I'd certainly be happy with either.
