I thought it looked nice in black but appreciate its a boring colour, white will certainly be more eye catching and it shows the details off better.

Black actually works a lot better on the S3 than the S2 but I've had black cars and never white ones.

Bit like women, I've had lots of blondes and brunettes but never a red head and you have to have tried everything once.

You have a new car?

Yes I know what you mean and I liked my M3 in white, regards the car yes we have swapped the TTS for a 640d and we are really pleased with it, it looks nice for a BMW which is rare and the interior is lovely with leather everywhere which adds to the feel of it.

For a big/heavy car it has a good turn of pace too and its returning 40mpg which is a fair bit better than the TT, its deep sea blue with ivory white leather, thanks for asking.  :)

Not confirmed yet. I'm still struggling to get my head around the extra money needed to make the change and conclude whether it is really worth it!!!

I understand what you mean and your current Exige gives you lots of fun as it is and the rest of your fleet is hardly lacking either  8)
