Problem is cars are usually outside where there's sun and sky.

I've noticed it looks purple in direct sunlight. When it's overcast Sparkling G looks sick.

For those SG owners, how bad has it been to keep clean?

Not an M3. But I have it on my 335.. I would say it's somewhere in the middle of the road regarding upkeep. Not as bad as black (my last car), but not as easy as silver.

damn, I should have never seen this...

now I don't know if I want AW or SG. I like AW a lot, but it seems to be such a popular color and SG is slightly different and unique.

i wouldnt call sparkling graphite unique, most 3 series i've seen are that color. ppl keep talking about the violetish hue but i still think it looks really good. one big thing is the color in bright sunlight. I like interlagos but on a bright sunny day it was so intense it looked purple, a lot more so than any i've seen in the SG.
