No love for Alpine White?

I know itís the common manís color...but it looks pretty good on the G20 with the gloss black accents and dark wheels.

Looks great. I had to go with mineral white to add that bit of depth to the paint work. Both look great though.

Do you have the Cooling and High Performance Tire package? And are those the 791Ms?

Yes I have the cooling package (larger brakes), and those are replicas of the 791M wheels. They look exactly the same as OEM but have a bit more of a concave look to them.

Interesting. I saw on the order guide "300 can not be ordered with ZTK". I'm not sure what a certain paint color has to do with wheels and tires and brakes but it doesn't seem to be an issue because my build is Alpine with ZTK. On the the other hand I had to add PDC (which I hate) because of some stupid order rule "ZDA requires ordering 508, ZPK or ZPX"

I'm not sure why you couldn't. In Canada you can order ZTK with any of the colors. The only requirement is that you have to get the staggered 792m wheel package and non-runflat Pilot Sport 4S's (I think this is also the same requirement in the US though).

You guys don't have that ugly orange light strip on the side bumper like we do...such a cleaner look. How is the mineral when it comes to swirls? I really like Alpine bc it's such a pure snow white but it does show a lot of swirls up close.

I have a MW F11. The absolute joy of this colour is that it hides all sorts of stuff that would easily show up on any darker colour. That is why my M340ix will be MW.

Yup no swirls for me either, although I'm Xpel wrapped and ceramic coated. I also don't ever wash the car where swirls might form. Only detailers or touchless washes for me.

Same here, Xpel front end and GTechniq ceramic coating. The Xpel is the best choice I made. Had it on a number of recent cars, brilliant product.

Been looking at an Xpel wrap, how well does it work and does it affect the paint colour by making it darker etc?

It's awesome. You can't tell it's on (I had all my edges wrapped under the panels). No color change at all and it has the slight self healing properties which is nice. With ceramic coating on top it's an expensive but worthwhile investment imo.

Thanks for the info and I will have a look into it more.
