Look for pictures of e30 with the colours you like (There are a ton around), use your imagaination and it will give you a much better idea than a crappy photoshop.

I personally like stock BMW colours and there are many good ones, Imola Red, Calypso Red, DiamonSwartz, TechnoViolet, etc.

IMO flat black has to be on a clean car, and must have a very well laid paint job... that one seems to have some thin spots in it, but i could be wrong because its only a picture, but it is one dirty e30 lol

yeah thats my old ride. dont do the flat black, i didn't like much as a daily driver but a race car i think it looks fine i only did flat black b/c it had grey primer spots everywhere try to stay with stock colors these olders cars just don't look right with new flashy colors. calypso red is one of my all time fav e30 colors and rare.
