So far:

White (either): 12
Blue (either): 10
Black (either): 8
Silver/grey: 8
Orange: 3
Beige (cashmere), bronze, brown: 2
Reds and Greens: Missing from poll

I'm surprised there are so many Le Mans Blues, given that it's M-Sport exclusive, but that could be a selection bias - there might be a higher than normal amount of M-Sport buyers on a forum like this.

Different countries get different color choices (or did, up until the 2014 models). I wish I could have gotten the deep red version, but they don't sell that here in the US.

I'm surprised I'm the only Deep Sea Blue X1 on the poll so far. It looks especially good with terra interior. Mineral White was my second choice.

Given the look of Deep Sea Blue and Midnight Blue, you'd think the names should be switched.

I decided to go with Valencia Orange because I think it makes the design stand out more on the M-sport, but I like the Alpine white also

I am glad to see that Mineral White was not on the top. I really like this color specially on a sunny day after a wash.

I feel sorry for the guy or gal in BMW who decided to offer the X1 in Marrakesh Brown instead of Vermillion Red...

Agreed!

I also feel like Mineral White is a real sleeper. My parents have this on their 328i otherwise I may have chosen it.

I like Marrakesh brown, saw it on a 1 series and it had great metallic fleck with a lot of gold tones in the highlights. I am not a brown car person but it is actually a lively handsome shade of it.
