You aren't able to see that with a darker color. There's just a huge majority of people who will agree that the M3 doesn't look good in lighter colors, and almost everyone in the know thinks so, I've spent 3 months researching the car and seen every color and option in person and even the salespeople agree by a wide margin the lighter colors look better so overall I think it's a huge mistake to get an M3 in a darker color, and especially to spend money and go out of your way to get it in that darker color.

Exactly why I went with Space Gray. Not too dark, but not too light, just what I wanted. The color changes to a darker or lighter shade of gray at different angles, specifically around the front and rear bumper, wheel arches, and the hood bulge. Gorgeous!
