E82 1M Coupe (2011 - 2012)
In many ways the spiritual successor to the E30 M3. Powered by a M derivitive of the N54 the inline six makes 340hp and giving the 1M a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds.

Which Color

I am thinking of ordering a 1M. I cannot decide which color to go with though. Would be Orange or White as my X5M is already Saphire Black. I realize personal preference and I have seen both but which one do you think will stand the test of time and hold up on reslae better?

leaning towards Orange.

I did not like white - looks to bland
Black will be too hot in the summer

So, Orange for me.
It also unique to 1M that should help resale

I also had a VERY hard time deciding on color. In the end I chose VO. It is the Signature color for the 1M and matches the Stitching on the One only Color seats. AW was a very close second though.

I went with VO. I think in the long run I'll like the uniqueness of the orange.

Ordered it with everything but the convenience package and the apps. I'd like the comfort access and the alarm but I don't want the NAV. I think it looks strange sitting up on the dash like that.

I'm excited so we will see..

Mine is in AW - and it looks amazing. Any of the 3 colors looks good on the car. Each has its positives and negatives, but the way the body is shrunk around those wheels and flairs - wow!
