    hi everyone,

    Im looking to respray my 325i in a couple of months and cant decide on what colour........

    my 325i is currently mauritius blue, i love the colour but not sure wether to go a different colour, i want her to stand out without looking tacky!!

    Im interested in other peoples opinion as it may make me think of something i havnt thiught of myself!

    Colours i thought about so far are......

    * Mauritius blue (keeping same colour)
    *Topaz blue
    *Le mans blue
    *Montego blue
    *High gloss white
    *liquid yellow (as used on megane/clio sport)

    As you can tell i do like blues, but i want either a blue that will stand out or a colour that will really stand out like the liquid yellow.

    OR

    do you guys think just stick with mauritius blue as with a respray it will look brand new and fresh anyway.

    Any opinions would be good

    I would keep it blue and just freshen up the paintwork, but if you are desperate to stand out go for the yellow and paint the break calipers red!!

    im not much of a fan of dakar yellow found on m3's, seems to wishy washy to me.

    I love the liquid yellow tho, has a nice shimmer when sun or bright light shines on it!

    But then i love blues aswell, something like le mans or topaz blue was never factory on an E36, so makes it more of an original car then.

    Im guna try make this a poll now and see what all you guys would choose......

    Le mans blue & high gloss white would both look cool as F.

    why not throw caution to the wind and get it done high gloss black though harder to keep clean i know but when well polished up and wheels detailed in my eyes looks well smart then again it depends on colour of your interior to set it off

    why is estoril blue not an option?!

    I had a topaz blue E46 and after a good machine polish the paint did come up stunning, really shone in the sun!!

    OMG you guys arent making this an easy desision now

    Estoril blue is not an option as i have had that colour before when i had an m3, and i feel its just copying an m3, i want a colour thats different for an e36! the blues im choosing between are not standard on an e36 apart from mauritius blue, but that would just be a re-spray in the same colour i have already.......

    I think i am leaning towards le mans blue or topaz blue now, but im still keen to see what others would choose..........
