The car looks great, but I wouldn't say it is 1000x better than AW. AW is still a classy color. Some people's breath here could start fires. x.x
I think Alpine White looks a lot better, but it's just a personal preference.

Before I placed my order, I was taken to the rooftop at my local dealership where there was an Alpine White and Mineral White Metallic car next to each other in the sun. Mineral white looks shinier, but the color has a slight yellow or cream to it. Alpine white looks more like a pure white. I'm sure most won't notice the difference, but I deal with color every day in my job so I have senses for that kind of thing. Mineral white does look like a more expensive paint job. The difference is similar to comparing Jet black and BSM.
