i'm respraying my car too this spring, just bored of steel blue *thmbsdwn*

i'd say diamond schwarz or black.

alpine white on a 4door e36 doesn't look right.

i thnk all 4 doors should be any black or shade of black
or midnight blue or some dark blue.
or hunter green.


it may be jsut be but the # of doors on a car really influences what colors are suitable for it...IMO

unless your painting the door jams and engine bay iwould stay the original colour. Although from your picture it looks like your bay could be both colours, then i say carbon black, amazing colour

Alpine white*wave*.............or imola red*th-up*............white is a overall good colour. easy to keep clean, when your shammying the car after a wash its super easy, with black you have to go over it over over over again till its clean and even then with black swirls come so easy.. with white its always crisp. take it from an ex alpine white owner

Since your car is tinted, black will make everything too dark IMO. White on the other hand, with black tints/moldings and diffusers will have great contrast! I say white all the way...(and i used to hate white!:D)

Black, in my opinion a black on black car is the perfect colour combination for a car.

i would like to keep them black...just for contrast. but the bumpers are fiberglass. if i paint the trim on the bumpers it'll look like poopie *th-up*

unless you have a better idea?

i just went from owning an alpine white to now owning a saffire black... to tell you the truth im not a big fan of black, it looks super sexy but maintaining it is a bitch. plus i always got commented on the white.. it stays cleaner for longer..

Also black is a bitch to keep clean!!

Black is superior to every other colour in terms of its gloss and reflectivity. Of course, this in turn keeps people like me in business. It sure does look good on the days it is clean, though. ;)

I would have to say black for the reflectional quality but as was said upkeep is a concern, we all know how Mitch is with his car , however White is the sign of purity , cool in the summer heat , easier to clean and leaving the body trim black adds the right amount of contrast , Alpine White *th-up*

went and got two quotes from small shops in my area...one for $2800 10 days-2 weeks to complete.....the other (which i like more) $3500 1 wk - 2 wks to complete....

this is for Alpine white on pretty much everything. fix everything on the entire body of the car.......

next weekend ill be going to our sponsor to see what they say. My budget has actually gone up so i want to spend the money i just want to make sure im getting what im paying for.

03-15-2008, 10:44 PM
it sure is
but you know when it is clean it looks so damn nice.
+1 if you want to wash your car once a day to keep it looking good then black is your colour.
