Paint Question

I wasnt sure if this should go in the Exterior section or not.. so i posted it here.. if it does, move it

Does anyone know of any colors that are similar to a dark gunmetal? I know a friend who painted his car "gunmetal" but it came out IMO as a champagne and I think gunmetal should be a darker grey-silver/black color..

and could anyone recommend any nice body kits for a 88' 328 ?

I was thinking of a gunmetal paint scheme w/ dark tints, and power coated/ gunmetal rims, ? anyone think this would sound nice?

well, gunmetal should definately be darker than champagne. If you want a dark grey/ charcoal black color for your car and want to maintain a stock BMW color, then you only have two choices of color. 1 color that is closest to gunmetal is BMW's color Steel Gray. This is a very popular color among the new Bimmers. Another color from BMW is Black Sapphire Metallic. In direct sunlight, you can see the metallic flake in the paint , but in the shade or at night, the color seems lik Jet Black.

hope this helps,
Bobby

P.S.- I was gonna order steel gray for my E46 325i, but opted for the NICER Topaz Blue!

I've seen an E30 in gunmetal but it looked pretty boring if you ask me, doesn't show any lines on the car!

Hey you are looking for a nice body kit for you E-30, well if you have the money to spend the Rieger kit is the way to go but if you don't have that much talk to Eurostyle he can get you a nice looking kit for a real good price.

You don't know what the Rieger kit looks like? Damn you sheltered, it is the same look at the kit on the new M3, but it will cost one hell of a pretty penny plus the shipping, thats why I suggested you talk to Eurostyle on here or check his website out.
