In Reply to: M3 Color combo HELP! posted by R. Simpson on October 06, 1999 at 09:42:47:
Not to contradict bassem , i respect his opinion fully. i have the light gray in my m3/2 as well. i think you should go for the boston grn/modena combo. i rarely see boston green and i love the color, the modena just adds to its class. its kind of like an old british racing car color. very nice i say- ive seen it once. as for the black, it does look well with the modena too. i think the contrast is a litte sharper. i love the clolr black on cars i think it is ver elegant but the main reason i am against black(actually a few reasons why i got estoril instead of black) is that a)black is waaaaay to common on the e36 model-its harder to distinguish a 318 from an m3 in black(my observation) b) depending on your location-black gets extremely hot in the sun c) black shows much more ie scratches dirt etc- pain in the ass to keep clean. just my thoughts
: I have been racking my brain for the last week. I am in the market for an ///M3, and have found a great looking 96' Boston Green with Modena Leather. The car has just over 40k miles on it, and is factory certified. The dealer wants $34,000 for it which is quite a bit but I would be willing to spend somewhere close to it. NOW, I also like the combination of Black with Modena leather. I have only seen it in a picture though.
: Both combinations look great. The question is, should I buy the Boston Green/Modena, or hold out for a Black/modena? What do you think??

: P.S- If you have ANY pictures of your car with modena leather PLEASE!!! send them to me? thanks.
