And here are comparison pics:

Having seen both in person, I would say Alpine definitely looks sportier just because it's "louder", but it's also more monotone. It kind of looks like White-Out, and also like pretty much every other boring white Accord-style car out there. Mineral definitely has more depth and looks like a more expensive paint job (it is, by $550! ) but it definitely prioritizes the classy, luxury side of the M3 rather than the raw, aggressive side. I wouldn't say it goes so far as to make it look like a Lexus as an above poster mentioned, but I can see where that comment comes from. Now, if you were to go MW with a Fox Red interior....
