I hadn't seen this shade of green before, and was amused at how well it matched the background.

I can't even remember the name, but I think it was Sea Green. It was only offered for the first couple of years of production. I have no clue how that person got it on what appears to be a 330 Convertible-- must have been a special order. I'm sure it was dead by then.

Gray-green. : puke:

Just kidding. :D :thumbup:

Peace. Out.

you're not saying the car in RGal's pic is gray-green, are you? :confused:

I believe that is Sea Green, and IIRC it was only available in 99, so sedans only. FastFacts isn't clear on this since my copy combines 00 and 01, so I really can't tell when it was phased out.

I'm sure this was a special order 330Cic, like the Dakar 330Ci I see running around my area.

Gray-green. : puke:
Yup, I thought that can be Gray Green.... :dunno:

Carrie, is that the StarBucks in U-Village?

Yes, I was working there on the Cliffhanger Election Night of 2000.

It didn't look like grey-green. It was more green; it looked almost like a toned-down version of Evergreen.

Interesting...

Found an old Toadfly post from Jon stating that Grey Green replaced Sea Green on convertibles as of SOP 03/01. This means that it was in fact standard on CiCs from 09/00-03/01. I still can't figure out when it was dropped from the sedan.

Sea Green was availble for E46 series production 4/98 to 9/00, which is the equivalent of the 1999 and 2000 model years for the US. This would also have covered the coupe and convertible, which IIRC were introduced to the US market about the same time as everyone else.

Also Sea Green made an appearance on several run-out E36s, such as the compact/ti, coupe and convertible.

Interesting - my brochure says that Sea Green was dropped in September 2000, but that was only for sedans. Am surprised that BMW maintained it for coupes and convertibles, but there you go. :dunno:

If it's any consolation, I own a not-so-popular color: hellrot. Too orange for some people. Gray-green's fine. Just not my favorite. I do think it's just one of those polarizing colors on the subjective scale.

And I really did think the CiC was in fact gray-green. Sea-green. You learn something every day...

I really wish this color had been available when I bought my 2002. I would have gotten it over gray-green, for sure.

Beautiful photograph, Roadstergal! Niiiiice! :thumbup:


This car wouldn't happen to have had coffee-colored seats, would it? :D I'm thinking that this shade of green and Natural Brown would be a niiiice combination! :thumbup:

Screw them. In fact, screw all non-HELLROT owners.
HELLROT RULES!!!

How can people NOT like the color of my car? I'm here for you brother..

Nahhh, i don't need any consolation. I really like G/G. The only other color i would have gotten would have been Alpine White.

Interesting. Just saw the exact same color on a 3-series convertible today in Virginia. Head turner for sure. I like it, though. :-)
