In Reply to: What is that color? posted by CRA Z on June 10, 1999 at 04:15:25:
: There is a new Volkswagon Bug in our town that is like a light metallic lime green. I don't know how to describe it but it is a great color (at least I think so). I love my Atlanta Blue but had I of known about the Dakar Yellow that is what I would have wanted, now I've seen this green and I'm dreaming of a Z in the same color. I know that there is a BMW Evergreen but I haven't seen one and don't think this is close to what I'm wanting. I want a Z the color of that bug!!! This is the only reason I would consider trading up if BMW came up with that color. I am seriously considering having mine custom painted next year but I don't know what my tan interior would look like with the green. Does anyone know what this color is called. Does anyone know what BMW has in the color works? If I decide to custom paint, how do I find a good shop?
If you are considering custom painting, you would probably preserve/increase value by using a BMW color. Choose from the list at http://www.z-uk.freeserve.co.uk/tim/colors.html. If you particularly like green take a look at 358 Evergreen (under M Colors) and 442 Grey Green (under Rare).
