SS. I sometimes wish I had gone for SS. I had SG on my 335 and got sick of it. looks great under direct sunlight, but it looks very dull in cloudy conditions.

At first, I was dead-set on silver (my 328i is TS) and wasn't happy with SSII because it wasn't just a plain silver color. Planned on AW instead, but after seeing SSII in person a few times, I'm really liking it because it seems to have a lot more "depth" to it. I'm now planning on SSII when ordering in Sept.

I would do space gray, never really thought silverstone is that great in the pics I've seen (never seen it in person though). But some of the space gray cars I've seen on here are just incredible looking IMO. Its definitely one of my favorite colors.

SSII FTW.

Add some black bits (gills, grilles, logos), gunmetal or black wheels, and it really stands out from all the other grey and silver cars out there.

That's my "unbiased" view of course!

SSII if you like Silver or SG if you like Grey. I like Grey.

ooff! tough call. Those are my top 2 choices as well. I went with SSII, but would have chose SG if it was available.


SSII has a more blue tint than standard silver, it's nowhere close to the old TiAg.

That's my sedan and I love SG.... It really is metallic and when clean looks amazing and definitely holds it longer than black which I don't think I'll ever go back to, but SS is dope too... To be honest, this car is soo much fun to drive it could have been pink and I'd still love every moment of it

I like space gray but SSII is awesome and very unique-looking, plus I think getting an M-only color is just cooler, it's one of the subtle differences that makes an M car stand out without being shouty. You won't pass any SSII 328's on the road...
