Big Decision need your help with paint colours
man i cant decided, my cars due into the paint shop at the end of this month and im torn between 2 colours!

i cant decide if i want my car avus blue or a hi gloss black

on 1 hand i love the mean agressive look of an all black bmw, but of the other hand i love that avus blue! i cant decide!

paint colour dosent mean anything as far as cost, he said hes shoot the car whatever colour i want same price

Is he doing the engine bay door sills, etc... at the same price with the different colour? If not might change peoples opinions I guess. As for me, I got mine repainted Jet Black (orig colour), becuase when I think of BMW I think black, though I do love all the colour options. I prefer Estoril to Avus though.

Problem with black though is its such a pain to keep clean eh.

I personally like Lemans blue, isn't there a new blue for the E60 M5, I think there was a thread about it

yes all the door jambs and everything are getting painted, my car right now isnt black, its diamond schwartz, its like a smokey grey, so either i go like a jet black with lots of glossy clear of a soft avus blue with mabey a hint of sum purple in it

how about this blue? i like this more then avus

yeah revshot that is a sick blue you posted, id say either something like that or go for the high gloss black which will always be classy

RevShoT 01-19-2005 03:27 PM

or you can go with the custom color I'm doing for my upcoming project car......... but that color is a secret. :) ... usually I'd say black, butwith the styling of your car, go with the blue.

^so when can we expect this hot pink w/ yellow polka dots 318i to roll out? :D

i love alpine white on red interior, like gladdo said...
also, steel blue is awesome

qimis 01-19-2005 08:44 PM

if you're leaning more on "racing" theme for your car, then blue would be bad ass. but if you're more into elegance, nice and clean look then black would be perfect. just my $0.02. :)

Black.. i'm a black guy

jeremy 01-19-2005 08:47 PM

black looks bad on ALOT of bimmers because of the flat/satin black plastic all over the car (bumper trim,pillars etc)....DON'T go black *thmbsdwn*
