I'm buying an E34 for my son's first car. He prefers one in green, but all we tend to find is black. We've only been looking for a month or so, though.

How rare is green, and has anyone put together something showing all the colors they made them in?

Green is one of the most common colors for e34s. The later model e34s were Oxford green, the earlier ones were Island Green (sometimes called iceland) which is a lot liter than than the oxford.
About 95% of the colors in that link you will never get the pleasure of seeing, sadly. I have an island green e34, and i would love to get it resprayed to British Racing Green, such a sweet color.

Good luck with the search. I'll keep an eye out for you, I live near Omaha, NE, would that be too far to drive if I found the right one for you?

Yeah, I'm hoping we can find something a little more local. We're not going to be able to be picky; I'm not going to NOT buy a nice find because it's not green, or buy a turd because it IS green (that sounded kinda weird).

You're right; a lot of those colors are something else. I think I want to paint my next project car, an E39 M5, Daytona or Techno Violet!
