Man those style 42 (?) really set it off! More of that M5 sleeping in that garage!
Thank you. They are Rondell 58's (well reps at least)

The M5 was my brother's, he had it for around a year before a collector made him an offer he couldn't refuse. It is Ice white with a black interior with around 50k miles on the clock.
Can't seem to find my other pics, but here some with it posing with a friend's M5:

I have grown to love Oxford on the touring, not quite as common as some of the other colors (at least not in Houston area).

Really nice pick up, I've never seen a OG touring

My first bimmer was green. E36. I can't stand green now. At the time it was my first bimmer only reason. Black or Red FTW. Other colors can look good too. Not green though.

bmwvin.com - put in your last 7 of VIN and it will give you the build sheet

U can't just take his word for it..check our paint code..they only made fern green in late 1999 into early 2000 for 4 months...it will say 1999-2001, but that just means the 2001 E46 was at the end of the line..for instance, mine is fern "I believe"..still searching for code..can't find it where it should be...anyway, I have a 2000 323ci sport, but was built in 1999..fern is a very rare color..I believe I have and fern...it would be cool to know for fact I have a fern sport package!! That would have to make more rare!!

Check your front strut towers. My M3 has the paint code (430 I think it is) on the passenger side tower.

My Ride: 2000 323ci E46 coupe
So I checked www.bmwvin.com..it says I officially have a "fern green" 323ci sport 5 speed..lol well I knew all that accept color..if anyone wants to know basic info rundown on your bmw, check this site..thanks jdny516 for referral!! It says color of interior and exterior, build date, engine type, etc, etc..Def a handy tool to figure out what color interior you have since there are so many shades to choose from..as far as exterior, j just couldn't find my paint code where it was supposed to be, and I was 95% sure I have a fern green, but with it needing a good 5 stage buff/wax, it was hard to tell..now I am excited to do that exterior recondition this spring and get the fern green metalic popping...BTW, lol I think Oxford green is a nice shade as well..really can't tell much of a difference in pictures..as I mentioned, it's nice to finally know that I have a fern, only because it's rare..

Anyone know of a site where I can tell how many for instance 2000 323ci FERN GREEN ON TAN SPORT PACKAGE 5 SPEEDS were produced?? It be cool to see how rare it is after narrowing it down..
Thank you my Oxford green colleagues for answering my questions!! In the end, whether Oxford or Fern, we all have green machines!!
