1. Sparkling Graphite Metallic
2. Montego Blue
3. Arctic White and Mineral White (I only added the MW to be nice to Sara so she will post her butt pics )

I have a problem with black on the E90 because the car has so much curves that you don't see when it's black (unless it's really really clean that is)

Frozen Grey M3 is the best.

Space Grey, Arctic White, and solid Red (Imola?) are my favorites. I like a good black car but it's too hard to keep clean. I like the blues & TiAg on an E92/3, but not really on an E90.

What is even BETTER looking than montego blue and HARDER to find. The ultimate best color on a 3 series... LeMans Blue

Before I had my 3 (no bias yet established) I wanted AW, Space Gray was my second choice.. I love jet black also, but I hate the time needed to keep a black car clean/swirl free.
