Little surprised by the negativity on Alpine White. Color is, of course, subjective and AW was a bit overdone on the E92, but I think it looks great. I will likely get AW for the following reasons:

1) Best shows the unique features of the M4 styling versus a standard 4 series. The dark colors camoflauge some of the grill, slits etc.. I personally like the styling and don't care to hide it.
2) Creates contrast with carbon fiber roof and other black accents. This also comes into play for aftermarketing splitters and diffuser
3) Interior color has to come into play when you choose the exterior. I'm a big fan of red/orange interiors and think the white makes a good combo.
4) Easiest color to maintain
5) Best for keeping car cool in the summer
6) No incremental cost (not a big factor with a $80k car)
