Which colour?

For the better part of the past 8 or so months I still haven't figured out what colour to paint the 6er, at first I was planning on Shwartz Black than Pearl Black but figured it would really suck in the summer. I went through all the colour chips that my supplier has and finally decided on 2 colours:

1st choice: Opel Green - its a unique colour very different from all the other BMW colours and its a lighter colour.

2nd Choice: Alpine White - Thats the original colour of the car, its very simple!


What do you guys think?

Definitely stick with Alpine White......for so many reasons, 1) suits the car 2) car will always be more desireable for resale 3) engine bay will match 4) Alpine white just looks amazing on BMWs ........ my $0.02 anyways

I'm not worried about resale as I'm not going to sell it regardless as it has too much sentimental value. As for the engine bay that is no issue as I'm painting that as well regardless of colour change or not.

The interior is black


I know that white looks nice on the 6er but most of the 6ers I've seen are either white or red and the whole idea is to have something a little unique. I did forget to mention that I have a full M-tech kit for this car.

if I had to pick between the two, I'd go with white.

Personally, i would go with a steel grey for an E24.


something like this big a bit lighter. (usic's supercharged E24)

Shwartx black hands down. My friends brother has a Shwartz Black 635 with an Mtech kit with gold BBS with polished lips. The car is absolutely gorgeous. When its shined up the shwarts black looks so deep, the car looks so elegant yet aggressive and sporty too. IMO the the alpine whites and bright reds do make the car appear a bit dated (not that I dont think they are still hot). But yeah, I wish I had a pic of this car, it looks amazing.
