I think it varies a whole lot depending on the car. The color needs to be appropriate with the brand of car, age of car, etc... I think some colors look right on some cars and not on others.

I'm set on Magnetite Black Metallic for my 190E. I think it's more modern, color changing, and metallic (overall more interesting) than the Blue Black Metallic that my car came with, but I don't think it'll look out of place.

Hopefully not. Lots of E30s get ruined by paint that just doesn't work on 'em. a 190E-16 is a lot more rare than the average E30.

If somebody keyed your 323ci, would you repaint it Plum Crazy Purple?

Oh right.

It's still boxed up. Hasn't seen the light of day in awhile. Poor thing. It needs my axles inside it and stuff.

Are you saying you need to stuff it with your parts?

Yeah, I'm a bit worried about getting a color that I later don't like. At the same time, the 16V only came in really dull boring colors...



The Almadine Red and Astral Silver colors never came to the US.


My current color:


What I want to change it to:



Just a weeeee bit more color changing and metallic flake.

Other than an old challenger, I think think plum crazy would look pretty ghetto on most cars.
