Smile Rare color Meergruen [Sea Green] Metallic?

Hi does anybody else drive a Meergruen Metallic e46? I've seen one other in real life and two on the internet. I don't know much about the color other than its apparent rarity. Someone care to educate me? or show pictures of yours? thanks,

Alec




All i've done so far are euro clears and debadging. The rest is stock sport package

Sea green metallic used to be offered on e46's early in the production (99-00) up here in canada, as a matter of fact, the first e46 I ever saw was Sea green. So there are a few up here.

Don't get me wrong, I totally love the color....but the color does clash somewhat with the blue & white roundel...(mainly the blue clashes)...but still rare!

Some colored roundels would do wonders for your ride.

looks interesting, I wouldn't mind seeing better pics and in the sunlight either.

There is one green that I see every now and then...it is metallic, with yellowish highlights...looks tight.

not to be an ass, but i think that color is rare due to the fact that its ugly... especially on a bmw. But to each his own i guess.

Hi does anybody else drive a Meergruen Metallic e46?
A liitle bit late maybe, but yeah, i just got one - 1999 323ci individual. I must agree, that this color is usually qute ugly on photos (especialy on that sedan posted here), when i was buying that car, i was considering complete paint job (dark blue, grey, black or somethin'). Actually, the condition of the car - like new was the major reason why i decided to take look on it. The interior is also matching color of the exterior. It looks cool.


But when i saw it live - i must say, that this color is ****in' awesome on a coupe. And everybody says, that color is nice, some people told me, that this is most cute color they've ever seen on E46... And I must agree... Another good thing about this color is, that i can hardly meet another e46 in same color...

some photos, some from the previous owner on 18" BBS some made by myself on stock 17" BMW (i dont like big wheels, the car was a little bit slow on 'em as well). Sorry for the quality, i took photos with my cell.

BTW: orange light is alrdy replaced

This is misunderstanding I didn't want to insult anyone, i just said, that color is ugly on photos, especialy if you compare it with reality... This color is beautiful, definitely on sedan too

and btw, i meant sedan on photo from mikko

And thanks for welcome
