The M-sportís shadowline black exterior trim does look great contrasting with alpine or mineral white exterior though.
I originally liked the Sport best too, but after looking at a million photos online, I came to dislike the black lower body trim on any color except black and gray. Once I decided to go with white, Sport was out. I’m also not a fan of the Luxury’s lower body chrome along the bottom of the doors, but on white, I like it better than the black trim. I wish they’d just nix that whole concept and keep that trim body color for both models.

Okay, how many of us had the instinct to clap when we read "deep in the heart of Texas"?

I see Mineral White is a metallic paint so I'm guessing Alpine White is non-metallic, correct?

Correct on the white comments. Looks stunning in white, it was our second choice for sure. I'm always tempted to get Alpine White on any BMW being the "official color" of BMW, but the metallic paint looks so good in the sun

I'm with you on that one, I always went with designo Diamond White metallic on our previous GL/GLS 550's and would likely go with Mineral White on our next X7.

Is it a sin to covet thy neighbors Mineral White X7?

We now have two white cars under our garage and I don't think we are going to back. Living Houston especially this time of year we have a lot of pollen and with our previous black cars they would stay clean for about 5min where the white car looks clean a lot longer.

The other thing I like about white cars is you don't have to be an expert to apply touch-up paint and have it look good. I had to touch up some road rash on my Glacier White Audi and the corrections are unnoticeable from 2 ft back.

If I did not get white the Arctic Grey would have been our second choice, the X7 is beautiful in that color also.

Beautiful yes, but as you say, it shows all the dirt and pollen.

Just picked up my Mineral White 50i yesterday, and I traded in a Diamond White GL550. When parked side by side, we were surprised at how different the two metallic whites are. The GL came across a lot more yellow, where the X7 has more of a silver base under the white. The color is stunning in person.

*Iíd post a pic of them together, but for the life of me, I canít figure out how to post a pic here from an iPad.
