Fern Green Metallic is the BEST e46 color ever made.... Ask me how I know!

Nice car and enjoy having one of the rarest color e46's around.

Damn, I miss my baby now...

A fern green 330? You sure man? The color was only made for about 9 months on the 99 sedans and for like 4 on the 00 coupes.

They had Oxford Green I and Oxford Green II made available a few years later for 325s and 330s but the only way it could be fern green is if you had it painted aftermarket or did a BMW individual program and got it in that color.

I would check under the hood and check the engine size and the color stamp

Regardless, the car looks absolutely stunning. Ditch the license plate all together and get some painted front reflectors. Leave the trim in chrome man... love the way it pops against the green body and, should you ever get rims with a lip, the chrome trim + polished lip of a wheel looks

Its about time you put some pics up. The car looks great, love the powercoating The hood looks awesome they did a great job, are they my sideskirts too? What are you lowered on?Whats next on the list besides the blacked out trim? Also give me a heads up if your coming up this way. You must have spent some time cleaning cause the car looks spotless also.

Thanks for all the compliments! Very happy the wheels turned out so nice - compliments to Metal Refinishing Systems! They really did a great job. But besides the shadowline trim, I'd really love an MTech rear bumper. Im on Hotchkis Suspension, and your side skirts are unfortunately still Topaz and still in my basement...

Wow dude, that is unbelievable. You must have one of only a handful of 330s ever made in that color !!!

It's an extremely rare color as it is but, to date, the only cars I have seen it on are 328s and 323s. Crazy
