White, black or mineral grey for me. Personally, I think they look sharp in white...

Wasn't sure if the matt black would look OK on my car but your looks great.

Thanks
Best I've got I'm afraid, front splitter is Maxton Design in gloss black, side skirts & rear diffuser are OEM parts in matt black.

That San Marino Blue is very lovely.

Never been a great fan of Estoril Blue myself. Too light.

And Fridge White never does it me I'm afraid.

I love Tanzanite Black too and thought about it when ordering my car, but Carbon Black (available on the GC only from memory) was a no-cost option and itself very nice, and Tanzanite didn't seem worth an extra £845 given they are both very dark blues.

Coming from a black E90, white is so much easier to live with. After one day, black paint will have a visible layer of dust. Go in the rain with this dust and it looks terrible. On a white car, this dust does not show. Sand/mud will of course show off more on white, but on London roads this is only really an issue during the winter months

Yea during the winter months my silver e90 gets pretty dirty but always happy to get the power hose out! I think the thing that scares me about black cars are the bad swirl Mark's are very visable. I'll obviously be getting it detailed but would bug me if I seen them.

My car is carbon black and my wife's car is white. It certainly shows the London grime - it goes a sort of cream colour if left unwashed.

Mark, I saw it on BMW used approved website. There was something else in the spec that confused me. Something that I didn't see in the brochure. Can't remember what it was now. But you are one lucky guy.

Did you manage to get negotiate any money off?

Thank you! It might have been the Innovation Pack that confused you - it did me - because it isn’t in the latest brochure as the contents of that pack are now split across other packs that are available (hope that makes sense!).

I got £500 off plus a set of plates to transfer my number across. Doesn’t sound like much but I had to work pretty hard to get that. I’d been looking at various cars for a long time and dealers (no matter where they were, or the spec of the car) weren’t budging on anything in terms of cash. The most you were offered was a little discount on ‘products’ such as GAP insurance or things like Autoglym lifeshine etc. None of which were of any interest to me.

Thanks again.
