In Europe, silver is the leading color and to a lesser extent same here in the states...it probably holds true for BMW as well.

Most of the ones I cross on the roads here in the Netherlands are black (sapphire, mainly), followed by titan grey.

It appears that the Alpine White fan base is in North America. I think this is a very interesting issue, while most of the silver,gray and black color variations are virtually universal ,White appears to be somewhat unique in its preference on this side of the pond ! Diversity is wonderful ! Cheers

If silver gray is popular, why did BMW discontinued it? Was it replaced by space gray?

I made this chart, it's from 7060 used 2005+ cars in Germany (source: mobile.de), I think it represents the Swedish market quite well too.
