Well, after much debate I have decided to lease a 2007 BMW 328i.

I know that I want the remote start, Bi-Xenon headlights and the black interior with the burl wood.

However, I **cannot** decide what exterior color I want! It is seriously driving me nuts!!

The ones I am debating between are:

1-White

2-Black (but what in the heck are the differences between the two shades of black they offer?!

3-Sparkling Graphite (charcoal)

Heeeeeeeeeeeeelpppppppppppppp!!!:rolleyes::graucho:

My husband has the BMW Oriental Blue Metallic. It is a gorgeous color ! If they have that I say go for that one ! I have a silve suv and I love it because it seems to deflect the sunlight and drinks stay cool in my car lol !

Pros and cons about each color (IMHO)

White:

Pros: something different for me (never had a white vehicle), stays clean, cooler (I live in AZ!) and I LOVE how the blue and white emblem stands out!

Cons: some people I talk to say that the 3 series in white looks identical to a new VW Passat??


Black-

Pro: soooo classy and timeless...much like my beloved Speedys! LOL

Con: looks dirty the day after it is washed and I have a black car right now.



Charcoal Gray:

Pros:

Sexy, glittery, probably easier than black to keep clean

Cons: $500 extra (not THAT huge a deal, but still...), not sure how the metallic paint will hold up under AZ's intense sun, have had both silver and dark gray cars in the past. PLUS my cousin's wife just got the new Camry in dark charcoal and I DON'T want her telling people that I copied her! Argh.

Black or the Grey.

White honestly does NOT stay clean. The black would most likely show the most water spots though, if it is not dried properly. It has been my experience that it also shows the most paint swirls or cosmetic imperfections.

If we had a choice for our 330, we would have gotten the charcoal!!!! It is really pretty and classy :yes: Alas, the only car available for us then in 05 in the specs/options DH wanted was a black one. Otherwise we would have had to wait til the next shipment arrived! Second choice is white! I love white cars!

The 2 blacks you are talking about is the Jet black and the Black Sapphire Metallic. The latter is sparklier, the former is a solid black ;)

I have black vehicles. I love them but there is a lot of maintenance to them. You have to keep it clean and dried off(water spots are not an option).

I can't even believe that this is a question!

WHITE:

It literally shines in the sun! It's clean and fresh. It absolutely turns heads. It hides a lot of imperfections in the paint or on the body. It will stay cleaner looking and not show dust as much as the other colors. I have had white cars and they were one of the easiest things to care for.

HOWEVER, DH is in the background screaming for you to get the charcoal grey. lol
