E28 cars in different colors. Post a perfect pic showing the

Post by Lotus72D »

So the brown E28 thread brought the idea of having a post with a picture of each color the E28 was available in. Now everyone wants their car to be the one posted but let's be realistic. If a picture of your car was taken with the sun on the other side of the car and the color does not POP then try a different pic. If you have a great pic showing the color of your car post it with the color name from the sticker with the color code and the English name, if known. Maybe we can get the beige colors that Eric wants to see next to each other together. My car is white so I am not even gonna post one as I know there are a bunch of white E28s in the sig pics. A good side shot would be ideal. Who is game to get this started?

From posts below, let's fine tune what the stinkin rules are: WE don't need no stinkin rules but

Kinda like what Shawn says lets get a full set of the colors. Then each owner can REMOVE his post if a better example of the COLOR is posted. This is simple with the edit feature, just select delete post, submit and bam it is gone. So only the best example of the COLOR of the car need apply. That will make this post beneficial to those wondering what a color looks like. So if you are more proud of the COLOR of your car and how it shows in a picture than ANY other feature, add-on, dyno sheet or whatever and you have a perfect picture of it, post it. Not looking for some fancy anything this is for COLOR only.

Now if you have something fancy you wanna show us, please post a new thread in any forum your topic fits!!!

Oh and please DO NOT POST large pics that exceed the standard width of this forum requiring scrolling to see the whole vehicle. This screws up the ability to look down this thread and see everything in a quick scroll. Thanks.

So we have about half the colors so let's open this up to other period BMWs to show the color.

So far we have the following colors represented:

Arktisblau Metallic 045/5, AKA Arctic Blue:

Image

IMO, BMW got "Cosmos Blue" and "Arctic Blue" mixed up -- the names would seem to go better with the other color.

NOTE: This is a repaint, and it's a teensy-weensy bit more blue than stock. Even with a pristine factory Arktisblau car next to mine, 99% of folks wouldn't notice the difference.

that color would look outstanding with some throwing stars powdercoated black and the covers removed. That Lapis is beautiful too. Soo many choices when it comes time to paint. Jet black I believe will be the choice I make.

Hey Folks,
Can my car represent the primer E28's of the world, or maybe even the rust colored ones..... RonP your car is beautiful and exactly represents what I would like my car to be.

Thank you! You don't see many that color, and if you do they are all oxidized and dented or scratched 528e's with "blackened" wheels.

The silver Hartge in the post above is Polaris.

John Savoca's old H&B 533i Turbo was Graphite. I've got some pics of it but can't upload to my website from Louisiana.

Lapis Blau #173, is this a non-metallic color? It is the shade I have been looking for.

Rodpaine,
Good to see your post here. That is a nice photo of your car. I like the spoiler and the color.

Clayton,
Between yours, Fastpat's, Adrian's, and Duke's e28s, I believe I have identified my favorite 5ers in the bunch from the standpoint of aesthetics alone. These are beautiful examples of the e28. I remember when Clayton first got his M535i...it has come a long way, baby! Please put me on your short list of potential buyers if any of you decide to sell in the future...except Duke, of course. I could not afford his beast! ;)

Cheers,
Tim
