While these might not be the new M 3/4 you can get an idea at 2 dealers near you: Santa Monica BMW has a mineral grey on the lot (I think it was a 335), and if you want to see a car with Silver Stone interior, Beverly Hills BMW has an M5 with the SS interior (black ext.).

I looked at both of these this past week to help narrow my decision.

I have had all my previous M3s in white and while white does look great, it gets boring at some point. It's too… hmm…. "Normal" If you know what I mean.

No.

That picture makes it look silvery. It's much less so in person. A lot closer to mineral white, but with some goldish / greenish tones to it. It's quite striking but subtle. This pic is a decent representation, but not the best.

Hmmm, not really that type of color. It's more white with the yellow and green tones. Not gold / tan / champagne.

You know, like a moonstone. .

Thanks, that's more what I expected and less what I like.
