Looking at mineral grey, but I'd quite like silver. I presume you can order other silvers but it'll cost me? Is there another colour chart to choose from?

However, if I could get any color on the M4, it would be individual Melbourne Red or Tanzanite Blue.

Of the available colors, I'd go with Mineral White.

MW no doubt.

I really, really want to like Silverstone, but there's too much blue in it for my taste.

Same here guys, just going with SBM as the body color. I would love frozen black but can't justify the price for that ....

I had the dilemma of a life time with this color. Usually I don't give a shit about these things but this time i really had to think about the options.

If I could choose any color I would have gotten my M4 in red, but unfortunately every time I see a female driving a red sports car all i can think of is that she found the hubby in bed with the nanny. so red was out.

I want to thank you for that smurf poop comment, I will be laughing my ass of every time I'll walk to the garage. Smurf probably will end up being my cars name also. =D

The moonstone is no longer a special request individual color, at least not on the M5. It's a $1900 option that you can order, without having to get approval from BMW like the real individual colors.

i am pretty sold on sakhir. but i find myself going back and forth all the time. my first choice was MW on SO and usually your first instinct is the best. But white BMW's are as common as people w/ iPhones. Then I looked into MG on SO, I like it, and although it looks whatever on the regular 3/4series I'm sure its going to look stunning on the M versions. But I just had a grey car, mind you a lighter/different shade. AY grew on me a lot, but I was Aurm Dust was the color they went with, I love the lime aspect of that color but thats not a choice. YMB is too light for me, wish it was the BMW blues I like which are all of them except Lemans Blue.

So right now its SO on Black. But I might crack out and switch last second before my order is finalized when I get my allocation date. I know whatever decision I make I'll be happy.

I for one am starting to see the yellows potential. I was so proud of my self for being able to pick everything ( excl model) in five minutes, but now I'm starting to obsess about everything. And this forum is a good way to get new shit on my list, Now I'm actually thinking about threads in the seats also.

I'm afraid that everything in my order will still change, and my quite set world will be rocked big time. This is so sad. never before have I even bothered to read brochures above the engine data, model and make. You are transforming me in to a train wreck waiting to happen.

oh I'm hopeless. =D

Wow AW has finally pulled ahead (been a while since I checked). If there were better alternatives, I doubt AW would be in the lead, but that's why I'm picking it.

Now what I'd really like to see is a row on M3/4 cars in each of the colours; I wonder if our colour choice would then be the same. I'm still glad mine in SO.

Same here. I usually own black cars. But, I too have an Alpine White 335is right now. Not sure what to go with on the M4, though. I'll have to wait and see the colors in person.
