I've had both...

Black will drive you crazy trying to keep it clean, but looks AWESOME at night.
During the day, its a SOLAR heating system guaranteed to make you scream "Holy Sh!T"! when you climb into the car on a hot sunny day.
White stays cool, stays cleaner looking longer,(believe it or not...) and looks great day OR night.
It's your decision.
But it seems that white has more advantages.

White, but make sure you get black floor mats for your cream beige interior, or else you will go crazy trying to keep your beige mats clean.

Imo

I would go black...looks sleek. Just like some of the other posters said, especially at night! White, I dunno. If it were me between those two colors, I would go black in a heart beat. I'm facing the same color decision on a 550i ED I'm doing in March. Execpt I'm trying to decide between Metalic Black, Ti Silver or Gray Silver...

I love my white 745. Dirt shows up more than my previous silver car but so much better than a friends black car.

I like Sterling Grey and Titanium Grey. Titanium silver looks slick, but everyone has it.

On the next 7 we get it's going to be white, Sterling Grey, Titanium Grey, or Stratus Grey.

Black looks amazing at night and when it's brand new, but other than that it looks like sh!t. Get's dirty real quickly and swirls like hell.

I love my black car but it is hell to keep clean. As far as swirling, that can be removed, but can be a pain nonetheless.

You generally need to buff it out w/ polishing compound. Check out the detailing section of the forum.

My choice was and would be again Sapphire black in 7 series. It is the most elegant and stylish color when it is clean day or night. Yes black is hard to keep clean but it is the best when it is clean in 7 series.

I dont know why but white cars remind me of city or company cars. I would take silver or blue over white.
