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.

I look at these pictures everyday since this is very close to what I plan to order (but Alpine White).

So just thought I would post to bump it up for easier viewing.

I have the main photo saved to my phone and desktop. It is really the picture that sealed it for me (..along with currently driving an F30 now).

Well my main debate right now is interior color!

I wanted the brown but after realizing Amari is an Individual color have decided to go back to either:

Red or Black

I already have a few white cars with red interiors so really don't another one just like those in the garage so thinking black is my only choice now grrrrr


Unless I go Individual Dakar with Amari but that's probably going to cost me like $10k!

The M4 is sooooo sleek, it's lost it's muscularity and become eloquent and sexy. I guess a lot of women are buying BMW's M's now..? Men are Manly!! (I don't wear perfume, I wear Cologne).

Sleek doesn't mean "hotter" to me.. it means a car is longer than it should be, and they added length to make is sleek.
Sleek = marketing for "longer".


Simply put, the M3 has a much better "stance" than the M4.
you've been on the crack pipe too long - come up for air LOL

I think he's fairly spot on.


The M4 is like a glass of wine while the M3 is like a shot that makes you shake your head left & right, grimace, then follow it with a chaser........and then scream, "Fuck yeah! That was bomb!"

Is the mineral white a kind of Perlamutre color?
I saw a 650xi in white and it looked very nice on the sun - perlamutre white, but I'm not saure that it is Mineral white.

That is not a word common to the West - we would just call it Pearl White. It has a sheen like the pearl from an oyster.
