LOL all that above aside, if the manufacturer won't do properly when they produce the car, and there is a mismatch there is a problem. Painting it because the manufacturer didn't do a good job is not a solution.

AW looks amazing! I've changed my mind again

The air-blades look so cool!

Does the car appear to have accident damage on the front bumper or is that dirt?

Why on earth did BMW not take the leading edge of the 2's hood up to the bumper (as was done with the 1 series) rather than leave that hideous transverse seam behind the badge? In order to save a few bucks in meeting the new pedestrian crash regs would be my guess... Tragic, it really cheapens the appearance of the front end.

This has been discussed ad nauseam and it's indeed due to pedestrian regs.

Look around, they aren't the only company doing it. Virtually everyone is doing it now, and for models that currently aren't, you can be sure the next redesign will incorporate it.

Not sure why it seems to stick out on BMWs so much, as I never see anyone comment on it on any other make but BMW. Look at it enough and you'll never notice it.

Personally I think the blue, silver or red looks best on the new M235i and really accentuates the sporty lines of the car.

A white M235i looks a bit "soft" (kinda like a CLA250) and to be frank, white (along with black) is totally played out.

Any pics of MW on Terra out there? BTW, I used to think AW was better too - a true bright white, but boy was I wrong. The AW is too milky white, whereas the MW sparkles and has more depth.

based off the pics, it looks alpine. MW has a more pearly look to it

Just my opinion but white is a little played out

Go with red or silver
