GS, MW or MB? Please help me decide

Ok have just ordered an F30 Base model 318 D SE (I'm in the UK)

Glacier Silver is the colour I've gone for but now thinking should I have gone for Mineral White or even Melbourne Red!

The car comes with the standard black cloth.

Car has not gone into production yet so still have time to change the colour.

Please let me know which colour would look best out of the 3

Thanks

Out of all the cars I've owned, I have never gone with a white car before because its just not my style. However, I went with mineral white on my 335i because in person the car looks really stunning in that color. My first choice was EB which is only available on the M Sport but I think white is the best second choice.

*this is just my opinion*

Glacial Silver, though if Space Grey Metallic is an option, I think that's sharper then all three of your choices. It's all a matter of personal preference. Pick the one that You like the most, it doesn't matter if anyone else thinks it's the right option.

I have owned more than one Glacier Silver or equivalent BMW and now own Mineral White. If my last car had not been GS, this one would have been. MW is great though, in my book a close second.

Of those 3, I'd definitely go with Glacier Silver.

Great choice! I have a bunch of photos of my mineral white matched with Everest Grey interior if you'd like to take a look. See the link in my signature.

The gray leather looks awesome. I wish I could have gotten it on my estoril blue. Odd the y don't offer that combo.

agreed. I would have probably gone with an MSport if it was an option. But the grey was by far my favorite interior.

My brothers 2003 C230 coupe has a similar grey interior on a similar blue exterior and its a fantastic combo.
