I don't get the point of this thread. obviously everyone is going to vote for their color, and hence the results are going to be the same as 'what color is your E90?' I think very few ppl. would vote for a color other than their own. otherwise, why would a non-metallic color such as 'Jet Black' have significantly more votes than 'Black Sapphire Metallic?'

#1 Black when clean (esp. at night)
#2 Sparkling Graphite when clean and Sunny
#3 Silver on all other days (the practical solution)


I'm a practical person.

Jet Black and Black Sapphire are nearly identical, so I would add those votes together and conclude that Black makes the E90 look best

I voted for jet black even though I have TS... but I think it would be darn close.

Well silver is the most popular color for all cars, but black is the best looking.
Like i said before, black makes it looks more expensive and you don't want to be driving around in a cheap looking bm.

While is Sapphire Black less popular than Jet Black? The less shinier, the better?

Thank God - someone else who didn't just vote for their own color.

Alpine White really stands out...not to mention...sportier
It makes the 3 bigger
Darker colors makes it smaller
Darker colors are good for larger cars...to make them look smaller
