Real world Mineral Grey M2 with 19" factory wheels

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Real life pictures of the M2 in Mineral Grey.

This time with the stock wheels: black 19" 437M wheels, doing the M2 more justice than the 18" winter wheels seen earlier this Winter.

Source: 1erForum (here) and 2erTalk (here).

EDIT: further to an express request earlier today, the four pictures of the M2 in Mineral Grey have been removed.


It seems that these also have been removed at 1erForum (original source) in the meantime (here), but are currently still online at 2erTalk (second original source) (here).

Doesn't mineral grey have a blue hue to it in bright lighting? Only reason why I wouldn't want that color.

Nice. If they didn't offer LBB then this would be a solid color choice.

MG is such a classy color! However, for me, LBB will make the M2 more of a candy sporty summer car! There are the 2 best colors offered IMHO.

This is what I'll be getting. Actually I don't think it looks like a beast or overly aggressive at all. It has an understated look that de-emphasizes any boy racer bits. Agree that any and all CF bits will look good with this car though I'm not one to bolt anything on after purchase.

Thanks for posting. If there were any lingering re-considerations at work, they have been put to rest.

No, not really. It is very neutral by itself, but it can look slightly blue-ish when the sky is reflecting in it.

I would say it is more against purple than blue. I hate it too.

Sure you're not confusing Metallic Grey with Sparkling Graphite Metallic? The latter was on the 1 series and had a strong purplish hue to it. Metallic Grey on the other hand is a very neutral grey.
