Here's to hoping Space Gray becomes available by the time 2013 F31's are released for ordering!

Yes, they were all announced at the launch of the F30, but delayed until more factories came online.

With Rosslyn South Africa coming online 2 weeks ago the colors have been added.

I posted the colors because the OP did not have this info.

IMO, alpine white has a cleaner, Japanese-import look. The classic Evo paint. The contour and edges will be more bleached out so the whole body will look cleaner, yet with less contrast.

Mineral white gives off more contrast so the lines of the car 'pop' more. For a car like this I think Mineral white works better. (Mineral white was the color of the E92 M3 on all promotional images from BMW)

Mineral white will reward you more after a good wash as well.

I saw that today at the dealer. It's beautiful. The problem is 90% of the cars on the road are some variation of grey, silver, white or black these days. They all look great but they all look alike too...

I miss the days of Techno Violet and Le Mans Blue and Helrot Red....

Is there no sparkling graphite as per thread title, or was that a typo?

The new colors add some interest. Too bad they didn't also update the interior selections, particularly with the Sport line. You still have to wait for the M Sport package to get tan sport seats.

I know the sparkling bronze is suppose to look lighter than mojave, but when I do a Google picture search they look exactly the same (at least on the internet). Do it, if you don't believe me.

What do people like more, sparkling bronze or mojave? (Mojave is called havana elsewhere in the world).

Sparkling bronze is lighter and more sparkly. It has some Xirallics in it
You have to see them in real life


1)Havana ( Mojave)
2 Sparkling Bronze
