Call me Frances instead of Frank. I'm picking up a 2014 Alpine today. This will be our second Alpine. Alpine with Black is very sharp.

Black and white BMWs are classic colors, there is nothing girly about it. In my bias opinion, white looks the best on a X3.

I agree with the black and or white looking the best in a BMW. We went white ad in my past experience white holds up better over time and I spend less time chasing swirl marks which I believe are harder to notice on a white car.

+1 on the white being not a girly color. I actually really liked it, but this one's for the wife and she wanted black or space grey, so white was out. I haven't always liked white on every BMW model, but lately, the clean lines go really well with the Alpine White color...especially now that there's rarely any amber coloring on any of the turn signals and the clear signals almost melt into the white exterior.

Another "plus" to getting white...in the south your car will be cooler. Great for comfort, not so great if you enjoy using your hood as a surface to cook food on.

I think it depends where you are located. Here in Canada the majority of BMW's and Mercedes that one comes across are driven by Asian ladies who are poor drivers. My wife is Asian, too. She specifically pointed out this observation and said there is no way she's driving a white BMW. Note that my wife does not have her driver's license, so I'm sure once she does she'll be a poor driver. But at least she will be driving a carbon black X3

I think that's more of a Canadian thing. Cars are cheaper in the US and disposable income is higher, so luxury cars are not driven by mostly Asians.

That makes a lot of sense! BTW, my wife makes more than me and if we were rich we would have ordered the Nav. Not that it's any of your concern, though, clown.

Cars are much costlier in Canada and it doesn't help that we highly taxed, either. Just had to pay 13% sales tax on the X3.

Summer weather right now makes me really glad that I chose white exterior. As for the black seats, personally I think it makes the interior looks smaller and feels much warmer.

You broke the Code. White does not show every little mark.

You are living off your wife and you make fun of her behind her back, who is the clown now? Let me correct that, you formed an unfavorable opinion of a group of people based on their race and sex, in my book, people like that is called a bigot.

I don't think white is girly, but my friend's husband won't drive her white X5 for that reason. So I guess there are some people who feel that way.

I finally got my first BMW yesterday ... an Alpine white X3 with black Nevada leather and brushed aluminum trim. I played with a multitude of combinations and configurations, but nothing looked nearly as sporty and" aggressive" to me. A lot of proud owners post images of their X's here and they're beautiful, but white shows this car'sdesign lines the best. Black accents. Black grilles. LOVE IT!

How did you infer I was living off my wife? I think that you're really reaching there and you have a great career as a politician. Anyways doc, I'm not making fun of my wife. Quite the contrary, I've been trying to coax her for over 5 years to get her drivers permit here in Canada but she refuses to as all the woman in our family are horrible drivers. The int'l drivers permit she has came from a little cash under the table, which is quite common abroad for people who fail their driving exams, Conversely, all the guys in her family who are my age (35) and younger and are machines like tokyo drifting everywhere they go. I wish I had half that talent. But it's great to see you pull so much from my little one liner. You got my vote!
Sincerely,
The bIgoT

Wouldn't the AW M-sport be more girly since it has more white parts than a non msport. I actually think those black plastic molding make the non-msport AW X3 look tougher

White hides swirls but it's hell to clean with pollen, exhaust soot, and other contaminants. I do love how white keeps the car much cooler.
