Just recently sold my e36 vert and bought a E36 coupe in Calypso Red. Looking to get it sprayed in Laguna Seca blue but I've always had some love for the Dakar Yellow. Now I just can't bludy make up my mind.

Any suggestions on the 2 or maybe some other colour you might wanna recommend?

It's up to you man! It's your car anyways here are the colour to help you or anyone else.

Dakar Yellow


Laguna Seca Blue


Personally I like the blue more! But it depends what wheels you got and what engine you got :thumbsup

I must add that the blue looks smoother and cleaner than the yellow. But maybe that's down to the wheels and if the owner cleaned their car!

It's a 325i mate, I've got a choice of 3 for the wheels.
ACS double spoke ones with splits. Dont know what they're called.
BBS LM like in the pic.
TOPLINE I think (similar to the AMG)

Not forgetting BBS style 5's. All depends on which come along first.

So it has to be the LAGUNA SECA BLUE then I guess.

If the wheels are silver or polished then go for the Laguna Seca blue. Also do you have a silver/grey/white interior? That will also go well with the blue. Both yellow and blue will get you noticed and build up your street cred :hihi But you'll get noticed for the right reasons in the blue rather than the yellow. Yellow is good for supercars, the peace campervans and beach buggies. The blue is just a cool colour.

Bottom line: Go for Laguna Seca blue! :thumbsup

+1 blue.

Yellow looks a bit dated.

That's quite alright man. Check eBay for interiors, you can get some bargains on there and different kinds of interior. Last time I was one there, there was a blue and black, maroon, red, grey, and a greenish yellow one. The last one sounds vile but would look good in a black/dark purple car.

Blue looks better, id say particularly in this country as the yellow would be ok in a place where the sun shines 90 percent of the time. The blue e36 coupe with the bbs LM's and grey vaders looks awesome.
