I think like a candy red looks awesome on E30s. I dont normally like red on bimmers, but for some reason it looks so good on E30s- especially M3s :P

Silver is my favorite. IMO, you can't go wrong with silver, black, or red.

Oh, black all the way.
Nighthawk Black (I think that's actually a Honda thing).
Clearcoat it if you can, everyhint looks better shiny.
