I had to take the paint i bought back since they shop wouldnt use it. Since then i am second guessing the colour so i wanted some suggestions and maybe some pics to give a visual. here are standard colours please attach the kind of colour you choose.hers a shot of the car engine out and the kit off ,interior out. They want to paint the kit off the car.

i was waiting for someone to say pink ..thanks. Ya gamites paint jobs is sweet . i know black looks good on a e30 but it is so hard to keep clean. i was going to go techno violet since i cant afford the standox montecarlo magic.. i might be able to get hte same shade without the colour change effect.
this is monte carlo magic

I am more of a purist so I have to say black.
My e30 is Siefari Biege!
I have to wait till later this summer but I am gonna use the JET black from paintscrath.com that is for the 2004 bimmers to get that perfect modern look. I have to wait because I will redo the entire car at one time, black and gray interior with m-tech II body kit and the modern engine(which one is to eb decided)

Well the black is still winning. So i guess i painted it the right colour in the first place?. The car was Delpin metallic from the factory.

I say go with the Purple...It looks sick

I dont want my car to be a factory e30 colour. I figured more people would have liked the purple. I do like the blue it is almost a kandy blue. But i have to consider the interior aswell. I have black sport seats with grey down the middle and grey inserts on the doors.Similar to these
