F30/31 - Which color would you buy?

More than asking which is the nicest F30 color (many would probably answer Melbourne Red or Estoril Blue II...), it would be intersting to see which color people would actually be ready to buy The paint names are in German but I guess everyone understands.


Alpinweiss uni (available on all trims) :




Mineralweiss metallic (available on all trims except M-Sport) :




Schwarz uni (available on all trims except M-Sport)




Saphirschwarz metallic (available on all trims) :

I am really intrigued by the Mineral Gray Metallic. But my problem is that I intend to order one as soon as I possibly can (hopefully by the end of this week), and I'm a little afraid of ordering a new color I've never seen in person. So, I'll likely end up going with Black Metallic.

You can search picturess of the the new 1 Series in Mineral Grey. It looks quite like Space Grey (which it replaces) and will probably be again the most sold color, at least here in Europe... A little boring IMO compared to the other colors but kind of neutral, goes with any interior (except maybe Saddle Brown leather) and definitely the most practical color as it makes the dust invisible

Thanks advantage20, but that would still be pictures. I wish I could see the color live and in person. I don't like blue cars and some grays have a blue tint that I don't like. Although I definitely like the the hiding dust part. :-)

0 for havanna no surprise there. It looks like it will be a horribel color along the line of Sonora on the early e90's. I would get mineral white or Estirol Blue 2. I love red interior so I would more than likely get the Mineral white because red with Estirol is not going to be the nicest combination. We will see if I can afford one of these when my lease is up in over in year on my 328i. I doubt it and will most likely be getting a Mini Cooper S since I sell Mini now and not BMW. Its a real shame because I always wanted a turbo BMW.

I'm surprised there aren't more people voting for Imperiablau... IMO it is the most beautiful color, all in all and also concretely on a car.

If I get an F30, I may end up ordering a custom color like I was going to do on the F10 M5. I've decided to wait on the M5 until I see the F30 in person. If it looks just a good, I will most likely wait for the new M.

If I had to pick between the colors above, it'd be between EBM, AW or MG.

I was hoping the new restyle would get rid of those stupid white eyelids on the headlights but it seems they're now a BMW signature across all series. They ruin the lines of the body -- especially on dark colors -- and there's just no point to them.

But it's all moot for me because I want a 6MT NA 6cyl F31X, which it seems will not be available in the USA.

Sorry for all the repeat posts, but I just wanted to say that one color that I miss dearly is the Tasman Green.
