Here's a few in SilberGrau Enjoy (and by the way the other color is Titanium Silver TiAg)
Just to let you know, silver gray seems to look a little different in every picture. It seems to really depend on the ambient lighting.

Thanks! Yup that's the ED center. Good thing too, when you first show up you see hundreds of bimmers sitting in the snow. I was hoping mine would be inside and clean - it was.

Yeah Bernhard at Harms took my front plate off for me and made sure I didn't forget it. I'll let you know on the rear plate at the end of the month.

My vote is for silver grey. It nearly looks like traditional silver in direct sunlight, but turns a bit darker under clouds. I love it!

Wow maybe I'm biased, but Silver Gray just looks sexy on the 3series coupe or sedan. Props to all of you for some great pics.

Also one more thing how hard is to keep the silver grey clean is it like black. I have silver right now and I love it because it stays clean and looks clean from far away even if it is dirty.

Thanks again.

Those pics are hot!

For some reason, the 330Ci ZHP looks a little odd - like it should have the M3's wider rear - I don't notice that with the sedan.

Thanks for the complements! To answer your question, polo, I think silver grey hides the dirt even better than just silver. For some reason, the dirt just blends in really well. You really can't tell it's dirty until you walk up to it. For me, the biggest indication of when I need to wash my car is when the wheels start to turn grey.

Silver Gray hides dirt better, but shows rock chips more than TiAg.

Silver Gray pretty much always looks clean and good from far away. And then it looks great when it is actually clean.

Mein Auto: 2002 330CI
I'm in the same boat as you. I'm ordering a 330CI/ZHP for Euro Delivery and I'm not sure what to pick: Ti Silver or Silver Grey. My currrent is Silver/Black and I love it. However I am tempted by Nat Brown interior and that goes well with Silver Grey.

Anyone with Silver Grey/Nat brown? Any picks? Thanks.
