Space gray / black. Perhaps a bit boring, but very elegant and hides dirt well

I thought she wanted silver or gray. When she saw the white she thought it looked the best. Not a $$ selection for us.

LOL. What is it for other colors? 500? I spent 54k on a car. I got EXACTLY what I wanted.

I had couple of blacks before but wanted a different color and thought space grey was quite elegant. So I found one with black interior ( :-(( ) and bought it. Now I do think alpine white with light brown leather is really good

Blue water with oyster. It is my wife's, and her color choice, but I think it is really nice. I have only seen one or two in Blue Water, and when I was on the factory tour I only saw one.

I am not too diligent when it comes to keep the exterior of my car clean. I am planning to buy a X3 soon. Does anyone know which color looks least "dirty" from daily driving?

My experience is whites, silver and light color cars hide everyday road dust better than darker cars. I also think nothing looks better than a swirl free, high shined black car. We chose white
