I'm biased. Alpine White is my favorite. Black will be very hard to maintain.

He guys, a side note. I noticed some of the 7's have a chrome strip going over the doors/roof area on each side and some don't. What does they denote?

THe ones that have the chrome strip are the sedan models. The ones that dont have the chrome are the sport models.

Just to quibble, the official name of the color is "black sapphire." This deviates from the standard practice of having the modifier ("alpine," e.g.) appear before the main color ("white," e.g.).

Nothing looks better than a newly washed black 7. Nothing looks worse than a dirty black 7.

I guess you are referring to the strip on the roof. A car with this strip (no matter if it's sport or not - if it's an sport-Li, it's still there, just painted in that case) is an Li, a car without it is the i.

Favourite color - well, just look below!

Both colors are amazing! I have a Black sapphire 745Li and my neighbor has an Alpine 745i. Both colors will look great.....the white seems a little flashier (in a nice way) and the black has a very strong presence.....you have narrowed it down to the two best colors IMO.

It depends on your chose bout if you don't what a color that all the other people have then get a white one you don't see them and when you do it is a eye catcher.

Our next one will be white - classy as black, cooler and easier to maintain.
