Alpine all the way. The e92 only works in black or white. The rest of the colors highlight some unfortunate lines that disrupt flow. Black and white mute this issue.

The e46 looks good in most colors, except white and yellow. BTW yellow was the promo e46 color so how many of those did you see? I'm not buying the marketing influence hypothesis.

Do the dealers have these statistics?

Do the dealers have access to how many of each color are on order in their computer system?

If so, can one of them give us the production numbers by color?

I know they can do a search and tell you, for instance, how many of a certain color have been delivered to the US (or a region of the US), or even by color an option combinations.

Alpine White for me

White...the new Silver! It does look the best in this, uh, achromatic, IMO.

Space Grey/Black for me. It shows the lines of the car beautifully. Not too dark, low maintenance and a timeless color, imo. Looks menacing when dirty.

I read the poll and was surprised at AW being the most popular. I saw an AW E92 M3 at the Toronto auto show last week and thought it looked terrible. It is the last colour I would order it in.

Maybe it is becuse I live in a snowy area. I got into an accident once driving a white truck on a snow-covered back road. The guy coming at me didn't see me until the last second and spun it trying to swerve out of the way. I've never liked white vehicles ever since.

Maybe I am just taste challenged but when I order mine later this year it will be sparkling graphite. For the interior I am thinking of saddle but may go grey. I think black will be too hot.
