Nope. My least 3 cars has been silver grey with black interior. This time I decided to go in a different direction. I picked Alpine White with Saddle Brown leather seats. I just love BMW in Alpine White.

I just submitted my order 3 weeks ago with Mineral Gray but changed it to Mineral white today especially after seeing this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/7226418...7630153797690/

Mineral Gray is an awesome color too though :-D

Alpine white msport F31. Without msport the AW colour is boring. I think the metallic colours ruin the sportiness of the msport making it more elegant than sporty.

As others said; everybody chooses White, Black or Grey, so Imperial Blue it is for me

you should also consider lines to better match colors.
have a sport line with many black and glossy inserts, for that reasons i did not opt for black paint, my favorite. i finally ordered silver, as its contrasts well with sport. with a luxury, rather take blue or black etc..

I am really happy with the mineral grey. Does anybody regret their colour choice?

Last 3 cars were Silver and I don't like dark colors, so went with new F30 color for MY2013: Orion Silver Metallic, which, at least in photos, looks like a lite champagne color

What line did you order? That color looks interesting. I am picking up my Melbourne Red Sportline in September.

My 2013 328i will be Jet Black / Black leather (sport) / .Cite. This will be my third Jet Black. I like black cars and do not find the exterior care to be that difficult for me. My 2011 X3 35i is Jet Black / Chestnut Leather / Dark Wave. And my 2007 328i (base) Jet Black / Tan leatherette / Poplar. I like the way the black trim disappears and as a personal preference do not like bright trim. I do wish there was more interior color flexibility on the 3's. My second choice would be Glacier Silver with Red Leather.

Not surprisingly, Mineral Gray is leading. I find Jet Black, Mineral Gray, and Imperial Blue to the best colors for the F30.

I drive a Jet Black on black leatherette Sport Line

Havanna for me! Black is not an option as every other car I see is black. White was an option, however the combination of white and chrome or aluminium trim is NOT ok. That left imperial blue and havanna brown. My last 2 cars were blue, so I now picked Havanna, with the beige interior and the "special" wood trim. I think it looks stunning. Will post pictures when I get her in 5 weeks...
