The official statement is Americans use their cars more on the track and they need the extra cooling.
I think it's purely because somebody decided the M-Sport looks uglier with than without them...

Some more pics, but probably not what u guys were out for

This is how it looks after just a few days of commuting due to the nasty saltslurry created in this 4-8 C, half-rainy, shitty nordic weather...

First thing I did when I took delivery of the car was to let it have a paint-conservation treatment (like Mr. Cap) and here I have just sprayed some cleaner on it (degreaser or whatever its called in english). Let it sit for 2-3 minutes and then just wash it off with a HP-hose. Gets its 90 % clean, do it once a week and maybe once every two months i will clean its properly with shampoo n lofa etc.

It really sux, just washed it again for the third time this week. As I mentioned above, that was exactly what I did, paint-conservation kinda like opti guard. All I do to clean it is to spray some degreaser n let it sit for a few minutes then hose it down with HP hose. Looks detailed afterwards, but it will need a proper wash soon cause it doesnt get 100% clean.

Will post some pics tomorrow

I Agreee....I had an e46 Titanium Silver and loved it. Was a "Brighter" silver. IMO i thiink that the Glacier Silver is a lil too "Dull" doesnt have that Pop to it. But i think i am going to get the Glacier silver with the new F30 Mspt. I either already had a previous color or do not like the color options they are offering at the moment (For the F30 Msport).

Have you seen a Glacier silver M Sport, other than in photos ? It looks anything but "dull". I would describe the M Sport in GS as a really stunning looking car with the contrasting glossy black window trim. The very sculptural front facia also stands out.

My wife has a Titanium E93; there is very little difference between the two silvers when seen side by side. Glacier is a bit creamier, and perhaps richer looking than Titanium.

This, exactly this. Had an E90 TiAg and "creamier" is what I have used to describe how the Glacier differs from it.

Silver is, in my opinion, THE ultimate color. It always looks good, hides dirt great, always has a depth to it (even in low light environments), works perfect with black contrasts and it doesnt hide any form, shape or curve of the beautiful M Sport

(F30) Official GLACIER SILVER F30 Photo Thread

Back In February I picked up a 2012 Mineral Grey 328i base model and absolutely loved the car....until I saw the M-Sport photos. I have had 3 previous Titanium Silver BMW's so I was never completely sold on my choice of color and I have also always wanted a car with red interior so I swapped my lease with someone and placed an order for a 2013 M-Sport 328i with Coral Red Interior. The Deliver experience in Germany was amazing, the wait to get the car home however was absolutely horrific, needless to say I survived the wait and just got the car home!

•The entire process from the 1st email I sent to the salesmen, until the time I got the car home was a little over 3 months.

•The car feels like a different model compared to the base model 2012 I previously had. So much smoother, firmer and lux feeling.

•Previously had an e46 M3 and e92 (coupes) and so far not regretting my decision to get a sedan whatsoever.

2012 328i Base model:
•Sunroof
•BMW Assist
•18X8.5 et 35 (Front and Back) with factory Pirelli 225/45/18 tires
•M-Performance Grilles
•Matte black rear diffuser
•Stealth chrome front turn signals
•HID kit (Aftermarket)
•Sportline floor matts
•Sportline dash trim with red accent









2013 328i M-Sport:
•Coral Red Leather
•M-Sport Package
•Rear view camera and PDC
•Xenons
•19X8.5 et35 CS7's front with 225/40/19 Hankook Ventus V12 tires
•19X9.5 et35 CS7's rear with 255/35/19 Hankook Ventus V12 Tires
•Painted front and rear reflectors from IND
•Stealth Chrome front turn signal bulbs
•M-Performance gas and brake pedals
•Black sportline exhaust tips (on the way)
(Coming soon):
-M-Performance rear spoiler painted Glacier Silver
-Eibach lowering springs (just want a very slight drop)

Nice pics, love the wheels! Got my rear reflectors a few weeks ago but havent come around to do it yet, fog hid kit as well. Looks good

Thought Iīd post pics with the winter wheels on, 18" Dotz Rapier Dark, not too pleased with them because they bulge out rather than beeing concave (fooled by pics when i ordered) and all the labels just look tacky but the center cap is now blacked out and the sticker on the outer edge is removed. The tires were prio 1 (cost more than the rims haha) and I just wanted relatively cheap black rims that looked ok/good and I suppose they still do

TreDirtyFive and I just had our OEM Sportline Exhaust tips installed on our M-Sport 335 and 328. For those that have not seen the finish in person, its really nice, almost black chrome looking. Here are a few photos:
