Just imagine what the " copy " car companies will do with their body lines after revealing this masterpiece. ! ( Lexus yes I'm talking to you )

Some pics of my Mineral White M3 (taken in Nov 2010)

For those looking for pics of mineral white, here are some, including some close-up shots of the paint (hover over the picture and click Original to see full size images if you want). The color looks pearlescent (is that a word? lol) when viewed closeup in sunlight.

Thank you, another set of pictures showing no creamy yellow hues. It really look like what it is a mix of white paint and silver flakes. The less light the more the silver / grey show while in stronger light it looks like a satin white. How do you like it compared to the space grey you mention you had on a 550? Would you get it again?

Yes, it has metallic flakes in white paint. No yellow hue at all.

And I liked MW better than space grey. Space grey was great for not showing dirt but I think it is much easier to maintain a white car. MW in particular has a subtle "glow" to the paint when the sun reflects off it from the metal flakes. White doesn't show swirls or imperfections like a darker car (including space grey) so I think I worried less about it's appearance. I also think that white shows the lines of a car better. This is good for a cars that you want to show the lines off, but bad for those that you don't.

Thanks Ray, I also owned a space grey car, 2008 535i and it was a good looking color that did hide dirt well. That you prefer MW over SG is a good sign

nice colour for those who like elegant and style. put on some svarowski pearls and all russians will love it.

not for me.

maybe M3 meanwhile is too far away from the initial idea.
now we see luxury comfort and style.

also cannot understand why BMW does not offer the seats without electronic adjustments. could easily save so much more weight than Carbon roof and all other high tech engineering stuff.

M3 is now small M5. sad but true

I've spotted F80 M3 testing in Port Hueneme/Oxnard CA now a few times. The latest one this morning. Might be jet black, though it's half tapped up. Haven't gotten a good look since they've all been like a second, but it looks badass in black.

Just wondering, what are all the dots on the front bumper? Looks a little off imo, great looking car, but those little dots are bugging me out. :

The dots are from the camo that was mounted on the car previously I believe. They are the mounting points.
