I like fern green, techno and daytona, love dakar but dont think i could drive one. idk i wanna have a more unique colored one.

Is there a source for s breakdown of how many E36s of each color were produced? There seems to be an awful lot of black ones (of all variations). I'd like to paint Elvira something beside Schwarz II (her original color), but loathe the idea of doing a complete color change on her. SO much work.

BTW, Electric Red is also called Japan Red.

Jet black is pretty much what Schwarz II is. I can do that for cheap using Sherwin-Williams Super Coach Black, but I'd REALLY like a "strong" yellow, like Brockway Chrome Yellow (a truck color, and not pale like Dakar). My wife wants it painted RED, like arrest me red, firetruck red, something like that.
