Or it can be more simply stated....
  • Alpine White: A more pure white (..non-metallic)
  • Brilliant White: Pearl White (..color flakes)
  • Mineral White: Metallic white with greyish hue (..dirty)
Think I like the Brilliant over the other two, but would really need to see in person. Probably not my choice though if I have to go Individual.
Envision the Lexus IS pearl white and you'll have a pretty good idea about how Brilliant White looks. I don't like it on the M3 personally; one of my buddies has an E92 coupe. It looks too 'luxurious' a color, and doesn't suit the ///M.
