Looks like silver is a popular colour on all BMW's. Its looks nice on the 1 series when the photo is taken in the shade, but in direct sunlight, blue looks ace!

i went see a blue coupe at a dealer in the lakes, took my wife and parents. this was the first time they had seen a coupe and they all hated it, the colour does not do the car justice. same goes for black, there is a black one driving around town near me and again, it looks so oridnary, you can't see the lines of the car or any detail around the windows. I like the white but fav is silver (i'm been bias as i have a silver one).

The blue looks very cool - but I would say that !! I think the chrome also improves the lines. My pictures don't do teh blyue justice as it was late - it looks great in the sun !

Very good try jonnyuk06, does look nice, are the brake lights LED or is it just the rear driving lights?

Silver does look nice but its just not a 'colour' if you know what I mean

since taking these pictures i have also polished the car, (well bits of it anyway!!) and when its freshly polished it comes out a far darker and deeper colour, looks even better.. mind you, this is my 5th blue car, so spot the patten.

Everyone knows that white is right.

Honestly, I think white really suits the car, and everyone at my dealer seems to love my car - not that I care what anyone else thinks!

all these lovely colours, lets be honest the coupe looks nice in nearly every colour (the one colour i would not have under any circumstances is black). But like all true patriots, vote silver, vote silver, vote silver, vote silver, vote silver, vote silver !!!!!!!!
