The white is a very nice one. You've probably seen white on other cars that look plasticky and lame, but the BMW one is one of the best I've seen, along with the white on the newer Volvos and Mercedes. It's a very bright, glossy white, but the gloss is probably due to the clearcoat. I'm very pleased with how it looks. I'm not sure if the white is the same for the '99, but it probably is. The name is the same, at least, and usually when they change the color, even slightly, they give the color a new name.
Also, the white doesn't look dirty very quick either. I saw a guy with an Alpine white 328 at a gas station, and by the brake dust on his wheels, it looked like he hadn't washed the car in a long time, but the body still looked pretty clean.
