What color has grown on you the most?

You know what I mean - the one you didn't even consider when you ordered your car, but now you think it's sharp and would maybe go for it were you to do it all again...

Me? I'm thinking Interlagos Blue w/ fox red or bamboo beige.

Still diggin' my JZB but it shows every speck of dust as you guys know. Speaking of, if anyone has a good rec for an indoor E90 car cover I'd like to hear it.

I actually like all the colors but I won't ever buy another silver car because the color difference between metal and plastic panels is much more visible on silvers and light grays. But I actually really like all the color choices and that's a rarity for me.

Space Grey/Fox Red
or
Silverstone/ Fox Red

Truth be told, I did consider Space Grey though, so I guess the only real answer is Silverstone (because I never even considered it) but it is a sick color!

+1 for Space Grey / Fox Red (but Sparkling Graphite was even better).
I'm really liking blue alot more now than 2 yrs ago.

At the M schools I've attended I always thought Silverstone was the most attractive color.

Fuschia with purple and brown striped interior.

Seriously, I like all colors and always have. It's just that I feel red and white draws too much attention and I'd rather blend in than stand out. Other than that, some days I prefer one of the silvers, others days one of the blacks, and still on other days, blue.

Cheers.

+1 this has grown on me. Also like MR (maybe because the memory of Imola is falling away...)

I used to think the same thing re: Sparkling Graphite and was bummed it wasn't available for 2009 since it was my first choice. However, now that i have my Space Red / Fox Red I've completely changed that opinion. The lighter Space Gray shows off the contrast between the CF parts better than Sparkling Graphite would.

You mean Space Gray/Fox Red? Or Melbourne Red/Fox Red?

I usually love blue cars, but I don't really feel that much for any of the blues available to the U.S. market. I'm sticking to my original choice of white.
