Anyone regret getting Silverstone Paint?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Finalizing my M3 build, and after seeing the color in the showroom I thought I was sold. However, after searching the forums, some say it's too feminine or a baby blue.
Current owners, would you get the color again?
Any regrets?
Thanks!!

I dont think its feminine at all in fact I think its fairly aggressive looking. Personally I really like silverstone. Its the best of the standard colour offerings IMO.

Absolutely not! I love the color. It will change slight tints based on how light hits it. If you loved it then get it. Don't let other peoples opinions sway your decision.

That's all that matters! You loved it when you saw it in person and that's what's important! Don't second guess your color choice, stick with it. Silverstone is indeed a sharp looking color!

I have Silverstone and love it. It's classic and yet modern. I have a musician friend who saw my F80 and asked me what color you call it, then stated how cool and futuristic the color is.

I like how most people look past it but all car people know exactly what it is. I get thumbs up and people smiling all the time.

If I had a bright color it would be too douchey in NYC. Only people with bright cars here have dull minds.

I currently have a SSII '13 M3 and have had so many compliments. I even liked it so much I went and rdered a 16 F83 SSII that is on a ship as we speak. It is a classy sleek look with a big surprise under the hood.

I absolutely love silverstone. I think it looks aggressive and also it is easy to maintain. Alway looks good even when it's dirty.[IMG][/IMG]

My initial order was with the silverstone, never seen it in person, when I kept looking at pictures I slowly fell out of it. Now when I saw it in person, it looks completely different and way better!

I have a SS M4 and would order it again. I also have the SS interior, but I would rethink that decision as it doesn't wear very well

It was my first choice, but the truck I have been driving 11 years is basically a similar color and I wanted something a little different...so I went bold...MG!!! Love the SS though!

I have SS interior as well. I am curious how it wears although I'm kind of anal so I think it may be okay. No kids or backseat
passengers for the most part (in fact it me alone 99% of time). When I wear jeans I put a towel down and I keep leather cleaner in the garage and wipe it down frequently. I love the way full SS looks.

Well, I ordered a Silverstone M3 with the zcp. It is a good classy colour and is fitting for a German performance car. The carbon fibre roof is nicely contrasted by the light body colour as are the black grills and side gills. The colour is easy to keep clean, takes a nice shine, and does not show swirl marks. Perhaps it is a bit safe but I am likely to keep this car for ten years or so. Light colours do better in hot sun as they do not soak up the heat. I had a dark blue car once and the paint ended up cracked like an old piece of porcelain. It is a good choice - you really can not go wrong. If I was going custom, I would go for something like fashion grey or Nardo. But I would sooner spend the 5k on an MPE.

Agree 100%. SSII is also an ///M exclusive color, which makes it stand out a bit more. It def pops in the sun or dark.

Here's my contribution...
