Absolutely Torn On Color Choice!!

Car is an E93 M3 -- both cars have the 19" wheels.


Car 1: Alpine White on Black interior with Carbon Trim


Car 2: Space Gray on Fox Red interior with Brushed Aluminum Trim


Really torn on what to do. With the SG car I would get black wheels so it remains sport with the top down and have trim painted glossy black

On the white car I would leave stock 19s and aluminum trim (sporty and classic look)

Really like both cars.. I have had a few white cars, current car is white.. but also had a sparkling graphite 335xi coupe with coral red interior and this is similar...

I know it's my decision but what would you choose?

Currently owning a black (mustang), white (MDX) and space gray (M3) car I would take the gray in a heartbeat.

The M3 tends to get a lot of dirt/dust on the rear and the gray hides it very well in between washings. I also have the two tone black and fox red interior and while I was initially not sure I wanted any red, the gray and red combo look stunning.

I looked at the photos for a while and I have to say the SG makes that interior pop real nice. I like it. Ray Charles likes it too...

The manager at my local BMW has a Space Grey E93 with black wheels/trim. Looks badass...... Every other M3 out there is a white one.

Those color choices could put a meth head to sleep. C'mon, it's an M3 not a Camry!
