    Is it me or doesn't that one look really short and stubby on the front end compared to other M3 pics? Maybe it's the cropping messing with the perspective....

    Looking at the shading near the nose, I think it's the same Silver one just under a harsh brighter light and overblown exposure.

    May be the silver one but we get a look at white with white rims

    Silver. Just the bright lighting. Look above both of their heads.

    I am with the "it's the silver" crowd. The shading on the bumper seems to show the overhead lighting is bright.

    Elon has on a silver shirt. The prime minister has on a white shirt..... which matches the car. There doesn't seem to be a bright light on the tires though.

    Anywhoo....maybe I'm biased because I'm ordering a white M≡.

    I looked at it some more. I am willing to wager $20 it's silver. I know, I am a real high roller!

    Oh yeah, looks like is a full foot or 2 shorter. I hope that's just a bad crop job, because it looks dorky as hell.

    I could really see this going both ways. We have no idea what type of camera the photo of Elon and Korean Energy Minister (KEM) was taken with. It could have been a cheap cell phone, which has no reliable color reproduction. It looks like Elon's shirt is grey/silver, KEM's shirt is white and the car and wheels are white. The wheels really do look white, which is kinda cool to me but I would not purchase them since they'll be so hard to keep clean.

    Groupon = $100 Unlimited hand washes in Hammond Indiana for a year.

    I did it. I've used it to the tune of approx. $1 per car wash this year.

    It also looks like Elon's head is too big for his body. Could be an inconvenience which comes with being a genius, but more likely all this is just a badly taken picture which has subsequently been badly cropped :)

    Maybe it's the saintly aura emanating from Elon's head? :rolleyes:
