E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

128i m package best color?

heard black shows dirt too easy. and other colors are hard to keep clean as well and show marks and scratches moreso. most are saying white is the best color.
advice, thoughts?

White shows stains much more than other colors. I traded a white Miata in on a Red 128 I, Red hides errors quite well. I have a 10 year old MINI that still looks good.

Looks like my car: 135i convertible in Titanium Silver with Coral Red leather. I am glad I got it since it does not dirt like the other colors albeit there are many Silver cars on the road....the Red interior livens it up though.

I really like Deep Sea Blue. Particularly with one of the two-tone interiors.

Personal opinion, of course, but the full-on single-tone beige interior is a little weird, but I do like the two-tone "Savannah Beige".

This is my "Lemon" interior, the Savannah Beige is much more brown, but the two-tone effect is the same.
