I thought the wood fence in your pics looked familiar, then I saw you were from Maple and realized that I know exactly where you are. The train tracks are right behind that fence, am I right?

Anyways, congrats! Love that color! Let me know if you want to do a photoshoot with my car (space grey), I live minutes from you, and I have a sick camera (D90).

Congrats!

My folks have a mineral white F01 750i and I have to say it's an amazing color! I still have a soft spot for AW though.

That color looks fantastic. Is this a BMW Individual color, or can this now be readily ordered with the 2011 models?

Do you know the difference between Mineral White and Brilliant White? I know that BW has blue, red and green metallic flakes in it, but I'm not sure about Mineral White. Thanks!

Haven't seen either color in person but in pictures it seems like maybe brilliant white is a more pure metallic white in all lighting conditions whereas mineral white has a tendency to have shades of silver in certain light?

I read that it looks similar to a white that Lexus has. If it's the one I'm thinking, the color is mainly white, but because of the metallic in the paint, it can actually look like a light gray/silver in certain light. I saw this on a lexus IS, and it looked gorgeous. I could be totally wrong though...really need to see it in person.

in the sun it looks almost like a pearl white, even tho it is not. but that is a good explanation. u need to see my car in the sun to really appreciate the color. it is real nice. did not think it would be this nice. ordered the color without seeing it.

I saw a 7 ser in Mineral white a few months back and liked it. On the M3 I love it, yours is the first I've seen. Great choice, sets you apart from the crowd a bit and the metallic just pops in a few of your pics. Congrats!!
