Which Official 1M color will you order?

Now we are pretty much certain that the colour choice will be restricted to the 3, which would you choose?

I will echo Woland's Advocate's sentiments and suggest that although I would like to order the Orange, I think I will go "safe" and get black.

Jet Black... absolutely... while it may hide some of the car's accents... it's absolutely gorgeous in this color. And of course it also will be a cousin to the E30 M3 Sport evo, one of the only other cars offered in this color.

Any evidence on whether it's Jet Black or Sapphire Black or xyz Black?

Not sure about evidence but judging by the sneak peek shots from the pre drive event it looks Jet black to me?

Perhaps our pre-drive ppl could give their opinion.

At first i thought of taking a white one for sure but after the positive comments from the 12 lucky bastards i am gona wait until i've seen the orange in real by myself. Hopefully this will be in January at Brussels Motorshow.
Black definitively not because i am afraid it will hide to much the model

I would normally choose black but since the black offered is non-metallic, and after seeing it in person... I had to vote for Valencia Orange. Now, if the black turns out to be one of the metallics (Black Sapphire, Jerez, etc.) then THAT would be my pick

I'm going with Valencia Orange. I don't normally like flashy colors, but this car really wants to be orange. Besides, I suspect this will end up being more of a weekend driver and so a little flash won't be such a bad thing.

It's a shame. I was hoping it would be Jerez Black (which in reality is really an extremely dark blue (or black with a blue flake)). But needless to say that, save for the Valencia Orange, they are sticking to colours which the Leipzig factory already applies to 1-series cars....and when it comes to metallic black, that means Sapphire Black rather than Jerez Black.

Aaaargh! I can't decide! Was all set on Alpine White but am going to wait until I can see this Valencia Orange. I like black but a little too high maintenance for me.

Valencia Orange FTW!!!

Orange it has gotta be. Only makes the car that much more unique (isn't the stat that nearly 40% of 1-series are white?) and the orange stitching is only a bonus. I like it that it is not screaming/flaming orange, somewhat more delicate and subdued. Should be a better color to keep clean (relative to black especially), and the black accents would mix/blend nicer than if it were white IMO.

But who am I to opine, I am a orange-crazy type of guy, almost bought the RS4 in Papaya Orange and in fact my entire KitchenAid kitchen machinery lineup is orange! LOL

Hope it's not a ticket magnet, but Valencia Orange is my first choice. Black is hot as H&LL in the California sun, and white is kinda bland...for me.

I have ordered the Valencia Orange, BUT if Mineral White is available, I will change..

Had a Mineral White 335i vert as a loaner this week and it looks awesome.

It is VERY screaming/flaming orange!! A very vivid metallic sunset orange.
