I was going to make a comment about silver (actually bare aluminum) being a historical German racing color, but it looks like it doesn't apply to BMW (they stuck with white).

"Now a traditional color for road-cars in reference to the Silver Arrows, most German car companies have a shade of silver in their catalogues conforming to Silberpfeil-Grau, or Silver Arrow Grey.

However, the Audi and Mercedes-Benz are not the only ones who dye their cars in a silver color. Porsche has also inherited the tradition of silver arrows. But the company BMW still paints its cars in the traditional white color."

All all topics have been recycled. Back to color. That is until the next gen M3/M4 are released.

Give a few days, some new forum member will start a thread "DCT vs. MT, which one should I get...".
