i was going to get a 335 but got a z4 instead.

my preference was:
Black Saphire or Monaco Blue

I like alphine white but the fact that its flat instead of a metallic or pearl makes it not very appealing to me. I really like the lexus starfire pearl white

I have a Z4 now and I'm thinking about switching it for a 3 series. Days of getting away with a two seater appear to be behind me.

SG looks good except when the light hits it just right and it gets that purple hue.

I'm sorry to hear you're having kids. :(

:p

I like the silver/grey color, but since everyone with a BMW has that color I picked Graphite. All of the non greyscale colors just don't seem right to me on a BMW.

I'm having a HARD time deciding between Monaco Blue and Montego Blue. I voted Monaco Blue because I think I'll like it better but I'd have to see both in person to be sure.

It doesnt matter which color Mazda3 u get.

just upgrade to the smoke colored tail lights.

i dont know why, but the dark colored tail lights make all the difference.

<------------ wished he bought his Mazda3 w/the smoke colored tail lights :(

A grey, silver or white since it's a sedan. My favorite is titanium silver though.

If you were going for a coupe, then a blue or red (Avusblau and Emolarot are my favorite).

I voted Alpine White.

Way too many of them on the street are silver, so that color might hurt resale value. (Though white is not any better.)

I like red but then you become a cop magnet.

My next choice would be a darker blue.

I suppose if I were building one...

335i Sedan
Alpine White
Terra w/ Dakota Leather Upholstery with Aluminum Trim
Sport Package
Premium Package
Cold Weather Package
Park Distance Control

All-Weather Cargo Liner
Carpeted Floor Mats
Aluminum Pedals
Rear Deck Spoiler
Smoked Sun/Wind Deflector

In other words...

No automatic transmission
No active suspension
No navigation/iDrive
No comfort access
No active cruise control

for some reason I never liked white cars at all. Dark grey/silver/metallic/gunmental is always my favorite. Either that or very dark, deep blue.
