Alpine white vs. Mineral White

Hello all,

This is my first post! I liked the look of Mineral white so I have a 2011.5 Mineral White M3 Convertible on order (week 41 production I was told).

Below are a couple of pictures I took recently. The first shows an Alpine White 335i convertible (left) next to a Mineral White Metallic 335i (right).

The other picture is a closeup of Mineral White metallic paint next to an 18% gray card (for color matching).

Hopefully these will be useful to someone.

-Ray

Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to do other AW vs MW comparison's pics because when I picked up my car at the dealership it was almost night outside...

I will do more and better pics during this week and I will clean the car. As you can see, the M3 was dirty. It's going to be a pain to maintain those ZCP wheels like new
