I agree that Sapphire Black looks great. Not so great is the upkeep to maintain it!!

Glacier Silver is the best by far followed by alpine white then jet black.

Of course, Melbourne Red is the best color (or colour as some of you say), objectively speaking!

Nobody likes Havanna? I'm surprised...I thought it the most gorgeous, beautiful colour (in sunlight). The only reason I didn't order it was because I was getting a sport line and none of the interior colours would have matched Havanna well.

I have to admit. The pics I have seen of the Mojave F30s are really quite stunning, specifically the Luxury Line (I found the chrome accents really made the Mojave exterior 'pop' even more). The photos that were posted by our fellow member, Svache's F30, were awesome (with a Beige interior)...of course, the backdrop of his pics were Hawaiian beaches, which made the Bimmer look even more amazing!

I was torn between the Melbourne Red and Liquid Blue. I went with the red. Not sure that was the right choice.......yet.

I was torn between Sapphire Black & Mineral Grey. I must admit the Black rocks but I was worried about keeping it clean. I can see from a few posts here that I'm not the only one. So............ Mineral Grey wins it for me. It also shows up the intricate surfacing of the side panels better than the Black. In the Black the contours get lost as the shadows of light blend into the black bodywork.

I'm going to have a look at Mineral White and Alpine White side-by-side at a dealership on Thursday night, see which one I prefer.

Normally I wouldn't go for white, but Mrs Mattyv likes it and I think it matches well with the Black leather/ red stitching of the Sport line.

It'll be interesting to hear what you think. I ordered Mineral White without seeing it 'in the flesh' first...
Comments I've read have ranged from 'best colour for F30' to 'looks like someone peed in the paint.' But overall, mainly positive.

Proof that the most common car colors are black, white, and grey/silver.

Blue and Red represent! EB II for me baby, sight unseen.

I'm one of the few who got Imperial Blue. So far, I've only seen Alpine White and Black Sapphire on the road. Not sure why no one else wants IB, it's such a nice colour.
