Mineral White has a pearl like finish. So in certain light it isn't quite white and has the same visual characteristics of a pearl. When you look closely at the paint you can see the metallic finish sparkle.

Alpine white is almost like a flat white, its just white no matter what angle or light you look at it in.

^Your photos aren't showing up. On another note...does the dealer really hold the car that long before its "delivered" to the customer? What all does the dealer have to do to prep the car??

I really canīt believe that BMW will take any profits by keeping track of "S850A Additional Export tank filling". I was told that they calculate the number of start and stop until the vehicle arrives to the dealer, the the amount of diesel vary between 3.4 and 5.0 liters.

I do not understand that they translate the literature, but not the car menus "S853A Language version English" and "S888A On-board vehicle literature Danish"

Thanks, yeah I love it. I get a lot of compliments cuz of it. It's like having a hot wife(car) with nice big boobs(coral interior) lol. It's a plus. Call me crazy but I'm thinking of powder coating the stock wheels to match the interior and lowering it of course

A front bumper spoiler would really make it even more menacing. Take a look at 3d design ones, and take a look at ebay "F30 + spoiler" , the are tons... google for F30 + tuning and you eill see many photos!m
