Silver Grey is a E46 color. The M3 E46 aswell as the CSL was available in that color. Attached is a sample from the bmw website.

Blue water is a color that was available on the pre FL X3. It's a silver with a shade of blue. Can't seem to find a picture at the moment...

I have a similar list I posted elsewhere, problem is I dont know what half of them are, well actually, 90%!

Thanks for the pics guys, Mica is nice but I have 2 black cars and am determined to get a lighter, easier to care for one to go with them, I cant hack keeping 3 dark cars in tip top condition.

Maybe I should stick with white. Cleaning isnt an issue, its chips and swirls that take a lot of work to avoid/remove and show up so much on dark colours.

Leg, I've got pics of a lot of these colours. My current car's combo is Ruby Red Invdividual with Champagne Nappa. I'm pretty much set on one of the following, for when I have to spec my M3 Cab:
1) White with Fox Red - the Brilliant White Individual is better than Alpine White.
2) Moonstone Individual with Black
3) Interlagos Blue with either Black or Palladium.

I agree with you, the darker colours are a pain to maintain, and they age more quickly, esp. if not kept in a garage. Silverstone and other silvers are far too common. Lighter colours definitely look better on the M3, and white is definitely en-vogue at the moment.

m8 of mine just got a Sprint Blue S4 Cabrio and I cant help but think the new M3 would look great in Audi Sprint Blue......Santorini is quite similar.

Here's the Brilliant White, Leg. It looks stunning, and has a crisp pearlescent feel even when the skies are cloudy.

Agree with you completely, Lucid. Alpine white has a creamy look to it at times, whereas brilliant-white is very radiant in sunlight.
Do you guys want any other photos of individual cars?

I've attached some photos of my Ruby Red with Champagne 330Ci Cab, as per previous requests.
