Alpine White since I ordered (an F31) m-sport. Otherwise I would not have considered this colour.

Currently mineral grey on my F30 MSport but am sick to death of sliver, grey and black cars so am seriously considering shelling out £700 for Tanzanite Blue.

Please tell me I'm not crazy...

You're not. I'd get it if available stateside. Too much monochrome on the road today.

You need to knock one off the Mineral White tally as I've changed my order to an F10 since I voted.

Hey isn't that a saying: once you go black you'll never go back.

Tanzanite blue. Had not seen it before I ordered it, but I wanted a blue color with M-Sport and Estoril blue was to flashy for my taste. After taking delivery I am really happy with the color.

You guys outside the USA are lucky - you get other colors available with M-Sport that we can't order. Mineral gray over red leather here...car will be in sometime late Feb.

Don't buy an EBII car. Your rear bumper will be a darker colour: EBIII!

Fact is - our cars are manufactured in one area and come off the line with no bumpers. Bumpers are produced in another building and added to the cars, so they are always just a tiny shade off. Found this out when having my front lip spoiler on my E92 painted to match - they color matched against the bumper, not the body. The sprayout sheets were different for bumper and body panels.

I've ordered Havana with Venetian Beige leather and burl trim - should be here in two weeks.

We looked at most of the colors on the lot, both during the day and at night, and wanted to avoid the 90% of the choices that were white, black, or grey, which all seemed impersonal. Bronze looked ok, but too much yellow in the mix for our taste compared to Havana.

EB II. Half of the forums here ordered that color, but I've only seen one outside of the dealership. And, that one belonged to another forum member.

BSM. Looks sick when it's clean, but gets dirty in about 6 hours. Everything shows on it.
