IMO, if you WANT to see all the lines then SSII is the way to go, but I think Paladium will clash, so it would have to be Black inside.

Fox Red probably would not go with SSII 'cause SSII has a tinge of Blue in it. Comparing the SSII swatch with Titanium will show this.

I hope that this helps!

Ssii/paladium
If you worried about showing the lines Your top choices are Alpine White and SSii (I am acounting night time)
Jerez is very good for day time

Alpine I feel is the best for both.

For me the best color is the Space Grey. I ordered mine in Ssii but when I saw the car in this color I found it too "light". I've now changed my order to Space Grey because the car seems more elegant in this color.

Try Melbourne Red. I was told it looks amazing when seen in person. I thought of getting Jerez at first but changed to red coz the CF roof and other details' visibility is better in red.

Hi, hope this helps... I have always loved black cars and been my signature... However after lots of debating I have ordered my M3 in alpine white with carbon fibre roof, black leather and brushed aluminum....I have seen three in white and one in space gray, and gone through loads of life pictures on this forum except for black and am convinced that white is the colour for this car... If I was going for 335i conver i would go for black, but with that black and white roof, white is the colour, however you must go for the 19's the standard 18" look like they have brake dust on them and are big let down...
