: Apparently the MY2K coupe will have a delayed sports package production. Anyone got any more info on this? Will it also apply to custom orders?
: The color changes are the same as the coupe except there is no blue change. Strange.
Too bad about no change in blue for sedan if true--new Coupe blue that's been circulated is great--'bout time the 3er had a decent (i.e., not blackish) blue again! Most recent blues have been better than earlier E36s, but still too dark. Also, I apparently was one of few who liked Sea Green--it'd be nice to have a decent "recognizable (again not blackish or Wizard of Az) green-- perhaps early 80s Cypress Green per that era's 528i? Something that's "Bavarian" but light enough to not show every speck of dust and dirt.
