Freshly Detailed/Washed Mineral Grey F30 & F32 Photo Request

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey Guys

This is my first post on this particular forum. Was trying to get some help from some of you MG F30 & F32 owners

I'm torn between MW and MG for my F82 order

I've looked at hundreds of MG pictures, and seen the color in person several times. I got an understanding now of the particular tone the color displays.

However, in person on some cars I've seen, and in some picture, the color appears flat. I believe the flatness of color I've seen in person has to do with the owners neglect of the car.

I would like too see, clean, freshly waxed, or well maintained pictures of various cars, just to get on idea of how the color shines when properly maintained.

I appreciate any feedback

Thank you guys.

did a comprehensive search through this section of F30 post after I made this post initially, looked at even more pics and yes I am starting to lean even more towards MW

MG just seems to dark, and i like dark cars, but it seems dull at the same time if that makes sense... in sunlight i actually like the metallic pop, even when the blue hue shows under various lighting situations

the cars that i saw w/ the m performance parts, such as the CF trunk lid, from pics its hard to distinguish the carbon fiber accent w/ the MG.. i know this isn't as bad in person that you can tell them apart, but can more owners chime in... lol

unless someone convinces me otherwise w/ a pic I'll lean back towards MG.. it was a 5050 toss up for me, pulled the trigger on MG first, than switched back to MW... MW was my gut pick initially, but i drifted away due to the fact that everyone here in LA drives a white car, white bmw's account for 1/10 cars I see on the road, literally, but grey isn't far off that at all, so justifying picking grey over white due to popularity issues didn't make sense.. but i still like a little color, not a fan on white cars really, but i feel like its the best choice available in the for the first year production F8X generation

You can put opti coat and other similar product to make to more shine. And also more aftermarket parts like aerodynamic parts will make your white car more unique. So... A car can be a special one of kind car my friend. Not even mention the wheels

Gorgeous.. Now that made my decision harder.. Some pics some light conditions i don't like it at all.. Other pics I love it. One thing is for certain, the cf roof will be hidden from a pic stand point, however I agree pics don't do the color justice and it does look better in the flesh.

I agree with u and I lve always realized that. Starting to be happy with my final choice. There's nothing special about it over all.. Over used in models I feel like.. When I saw Singapore I was drooling.. Mg is just like a reg dark grey to me with no pop unless in person (which matters most I know) and well maintained.. At least mw isn't offered on the f32, not as many bmw models, and is a little cooler than the mg IMO because the color looks amazing in person and under different lighting conditions.. Like mw and metallic colors in general they change throughout the day some more drastic than others.. Mw is one of those which is pretty cool cause u don't see that often with a white car. It has a silverish hue unlike the ugly yellow hue on Lexus metallic white. Mg has it's moments where it looks incredible but also has those moments where not so much. I would love to see one with a proper set of wheels.. Finding the right wheel finish on this color will be challenging. Needs like a brushed aluminum finish def not dark wheels

I say go for the MG, think it shows the lines of the F30 beautifully. These pics were taken in low light settings, but the color only gets better as it gets more light. My top two choices were MG and MW, but in the end I chose MG, and I'm glad I did.
