M4 Buyers - Sticking with White?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
The e92 looked great in white and that seemed to be the most popular color by far. I went with white as well.

For the M4, just curious if the white theme will stay or another color will take it's place. Open to opinions here.

I'm still partial to white, but the mockups in red looking pretty damn good, so that may be an option.

I think black may be the best color for this car. Its a little bit over styled, so black may hide some of the un-needed lines (from a design standpoint).

Well from my Audi background my preference would be a shade lighter than Daytona Gray but with more blue in it like Monza Silver.

I am going to order my M4 in silver. I like how it shows the lines of the car and is easy to maintain.

I'm struggling with color this time. Most likely it will be one of Alpine White,Mineral White, Glacier Silver, Space Grey, Estoril Blue II or whatever they will call the colors similar to these for the F80.

M4 color

I'm tired of white, and not ready for silver again. Will need to see the options. Would like Estoril Blue but I know they typically will not take special color orders for a while after launch.

I had white on my S4 and that is still a great color. I always wanted one of the blues from BMW, as I feel they produce the best blue colors on the market. I went with Le Mans blue and it is truly stunning. I love the color. It might take a little more care to keep up, but it is worth it. Something like that possible metallic Laguna Seca blue that was mentioned in the past (Yas Marina Blue) might really look good and sway my opinion.

Pretty much have the same issue. I like this car in red but then I have to give up the fox red interior. The white with red interior is just such a solid combo.

I am leaning towards a silver color the first go around or maybe black. The next one I will do a indiv order. For the first one I want it right away! the indiv order would take to long for me on the first go around LOL.

This is what David is going with as well. If the color is anything like the concept color(concept color yellow will not be available for production models, however BMW will release a similar color for the m4) you will be very happy the pics do not do that color justice at all. The color in person had a ton of flake to it and really pop'd!

Already got a gunmetal M3 (planning to keep it), so the M3/4 will definitely be a bright color.

Blue, orange (big maybe), and red. This PS is talking to me big time:
