SS vs. SO vs. MW

F80 with CF roof, of course.

Black 437Ms

More than likely SO interior, full leather

but if SO paint then probably a shade of tan or brown interior.


Just as the title reads lol

Which do I pick??

(Pictures won't hurt)

(DCT because apparently this is a factor)

I ordered YAS with Full SO, but I was choosing between YAS/SO and MW/SO imho it is the best 2 combinations for F80, so from this 3 I will choose MW and nothing else...

My conundrum was similar after I had to reorder due to a snafu with the original build (TZB/SO/ZCP).

I was MW/SO, SS/SO, or MG/SO.... ended up SS/SO and have been _very_ happy with the decision. Miss the TZB, but SS with the CF roof and SO full leather is a great combo.

Good luck with your decision.



Cheers,

I recently went through the same debate. In some light I love SO, but other times it's too red for me.

I went with MW, full black interior, CF and black wheels.

Thanks for the replies, obviously it's going to be what I like, but I like them all, albeit for different reasons.



I just see so many white bmws, especially with red leather down here.

Although right now MW/SO is probably going to be the winner

Silver stone shows the lines of the car so well, and I'm sure it's easier to maintain.

I kinda want an M specific color, because its special. So that's my conundrum.

Both beautiful shades of blue. SMB is a stunner. I pass a SMB M6 almost daily going to my girlfriends house and it's gorgeous.

I'd rather not have to pay the individual price however.

It will be a lease though, so may not make a huge difference in payment.

If you always wanted an M color you should bail on the MG option.

Just my .02

Silverstone & Sakhir were my two choices initially. Good luck! Can't go wrong with any of the options really.

Had MW on my e92 M3 and loved it but it was common on other local bimmers.. there are times I look at SO and love it but then there are times I look at it and feel meh about it.

I've never once looked at Silverstone and thought ehh it's ok; I absolutely love Silverstone so that's my answer

Silver stone is so classy and sporty at the same time. I really do like it.

It's edging ahead. Lol

Thanks for the feedback on MW.

I kinda feel it hides the lines a little.

And coming from an F30 335, I want a car that's different enough looking and feeling so that I don't get bored like I am with this one. Lol

I'm not sure I could live with YMB, I see it around and it looks great, very sporty color... but for my car... I don't think I could pull the trigger. Lol

I can tell you that Silverstone is a great, great color. I do love the Mineral White, even tho my M4 is AY i just needed a change all my cars my whole life where Whites/greys/silvers and AY is Beautiful in person.
So IMO you should go with either SS or MW,(SS really) I've had MG and it AWAYS looks dirty!

I also wanted M color and toggled between SS and SO (with full SO interior). Opted for SS and have been very happy. Both are very strong options.
