White is cool...never "girly". My X3 is Alpine white with oyster colour seats and black dashboard/carpets. I am particular about cleanliness; wash at least once a week or when it is really dirty + Wax every 2-3 months since the car is rarely subjected to harsh condition.

Okay, after thinking about it I admit white is a little a feminine color, just a little. But I think it's still the best color for a car because:
1. Safety. White can be seen more easily by other drivers.
2. Stays cool. White color reflects most radiation and increase temp more slowly.
3. Saves you money. You don't pay for the metallic paint option. And because it stays cooler the AC does not need to work as hard, less fuel consumption.
4. Hides the swirls. A while car will look new longer.

Above are the facts. In my personal opinions I also think white is a more friendly color, people less likely to think you are a show off BMW driver. And because of the great contrast between white and the red rear lights, white can be recognized a BMW more easily. Finally, although it shows spot dirts easily, the whole car still looks clean because the color is so bright.

Color choice could also be a regional thing. It would seem that no one from the southwestern US is questioning the merits of owning a white car. Temperatures in this area have been hitting almost 120 degrees Fahrenheit on a daily basis, for the last few days.

Talking Got my Alpine White X3 today!!

It's okay if it's a girly color....I'm a girl. BMWs look great in white. The blue and white of the BMW emblem looks best against white and the lines of the vehicle show very well. And I too like the contrast of the rear red lights against the white.

What my wife thinks as well. Before going she was saw on silver or space gray. After seeing in person she felt the white looked best, classiest etc.

Same here, we were going to get a sapphire black, but when we saw the black and white next to each other, the white look better. Too bad BMW doesn't make a pearl white.

Well, isn't the X3 already considered a girly car? I'm not saying that's what I think, but that seems to be what a lot of people think

Yes, but Diesel versions of the GLK are just now starting to come out (GLK 250D?). Diesel engine buyers tend to be male (in the USA, anyway).

Correct. In addition, Germany's traditional racing color was white.
