Color chart

@iloveyou, I am not sure it will help you properly but, you can find the entire color palette of BMW here: http://bmwccbc.org/resources/teile/B...ent-colors.pdf

My suggestion is Stahl Blau / Steel Blue....372 colour code. If you find out the VIN (probably, if that's an ad, the seller can give it to you, you can easily identify it, using a BMW online VIN decoder)....

I think it looks more silver than blue...my car in my sig is steel blue, but I could be wrong seeing as the car is half shade half in the sun

Yes, it is quite difficult to spot the exact shade - for example, my car (as in Garage photo) is electric/Japan red but, in the photo, although taken on a sunny day, it looks much darker that it really is. I thought it is Steel Blue, based on the bluish tint of that metallic grey....However, now that Brickhaus mentioned it, it can also be a grey but, the shade and the environment makes it seem a little bluish...

HUGE oil problem! Need advice

Ok so I drive a 02 325i with roughly 137k on it. It goes through oil ridiculously. I cannot drive 500 miles without the oil light coming on. I've tried adding thicker oil to somewhat slow this down and that hasn't helped(Mobil super 10w-40)

It's an auto/tipronic trans. I drive in tip tropic all the time because I wish it was stick.

I'm gunna be realistic and say I don't f**k around and drive slow.


I've looked through some of the other posts on here and can't really find anything that's similar to my problem.

Help me out guys! It's driving me crazy adding oil once a week!!!
