Spied colors.

How about a compilation of spied colors.

F80:
- Jet Black
- Silverstone
- Sakhir Orange
- Yas Marina Blue
- Alpine White
- Mineral Grey

F82:
- Jet Black
- Silverstone
- Alpine White
- Lime Yellow
- Dark Green
F83:
- Jerez Black

Have I missed any colors?

Questions to those of you who have seen a prototype up close.
1. Is the black Jet Black or Saphire Black?
2. Have you seen Glacier Silver or only Silverstone?
3. Is it Mineral Grey or something darker?

That yellow colour that will reportedly come as an option. Sorry, I know it's not much help, but it is seen here around the doors:

I would love to see a silver that is a true silver without say a blue hue. I have always loved Porsche's GT silver and if BMW would offer something like this I would be sold. I think it would show the lines of the car well, it would be easy to maintain, and wouldn't show a lot of scratches, etc.

M3 colors on E9X were nothing to shout about. Imola was the only "interesting" one. E46 with Laguna Seca and Phoenix was a little more adventuresome. Tired of black, silver and white. Hopefully we get a lighter blue, like Estoril, and a yellow and red.

Estoril II:

I'm hoping for a nice blue color. Something a touch lighter than lemans and more silvery gray in it. A steel blue of some sort. There's blue out there called Azurro blue that's real nice.

That yellow color under the camouflage looks close to Lime yellow

Wasn't there a green (mostly covered) mule as well? I think I remember a thread where it was pointed out, but I could be mistaken.

Yes and no. Yes because Scott the forums BMW insider mentioned that Pure Metal Silver will be available. This is IMO an incredible color that I would get in a heartbeat if it was one of the standard colors or the reasonably priced individual colors. No because it's likely +$10k and thereby IMO rendered irrelevant.

I have tried to get anyone who have seen a silver prototype to comment if it's Silverstone only or if other silvers has been seen but no responses so far.

In pictures the 4 series looks great in Mineral Gray so i think the M4 should look great with i too.
Space Gray looks lighter than Mineral Gray in pictures somebody who has seen both in real world that can explain the differences?

Also Sparkling Graphite looks like a good looking color whats the real world differences vs Mineral Gray and Space Gray?

Space Grey is substantially ligther than Mineral Grey. My E60 was Space Grey and it's a beautiful grey. I saw the new 4-series in the flesh on Sunday and it was a Mineral Grey M-Sport. It's darker than Space Grey. Personally I think it's a bit bland color for the F30/F32 and that these cars tend to be a bit invisible if the color isn't a bit more striking. Looks sophisticated but maybe a bit boring?

Okay thanks for the input.

Please let them offer Space Grey, Mineral is nice but too dark and will show swirls and dust like black.
