E36 M3 color.

Hi im new on this forum.

Im from Canada (Qc) so sorry for my english.

I just get my E36 M3 2 days ago and i wanna make a new paint this winter on it.

I was thinking on a bright red or yellow. What color should my M3 be... Cause im new on ''european'' car and know nothing about it.

I got the M3 17'' original mags on it and i wanna change for 18'' should i?


Sorry if i post in the wrong section.

So if someone have some idea for me. And where i could get M3 tunning parts?

Thanks a lot

TheFrenchGuy

Welcome to the Werkz. If you are considering yellow then you must go with Dakar Yellow, it is one of the best colors on the E36 M3, plus it is a factory color. For tuning, you can never go wrong with Dinan, they have great and reliable products, plus a warranty. They are most likely the best bet. There are other companies, but I can think of any that are better all around than Dinan. Good luck with your decisions, and post up some pictures of your new ride!

Not a problem. You will find good answers to most of your questions here, most of the guys are 3-Series guys and will be a lot more insightful than I am.

my first reaction answer is flat black...for some reason i am obsessed with flat black.

but, i am partial to dark silver...like a gunmetal.

i think that looks really sweet.

either that or white with black accents.

Welcome to Teh Werkz! JET-BLACK BABY (OK - Both my M3 and Z3 are Jet black so...). Seriously, I also like bright red and am not usually a yellow guy, but the truth is - DAKAR YELLOW on an E36 M3 is right up there with ANY color - just spectacular! From the red or yellow colors you suggested, I'd go Dakar yellow with the black Accents. We have afew Werkz members with this combo on an E36 if you want to check it out - Pringles I believe and Montizzle - both have photo spreads! Good luck!

What about borrowing from the E46 and going with a Phoenix yellow or Imola Red?

The Imola might be a good choice for red now that you mention it drz, I hadn't thought about that. I am not a fan of Phoenix Yellow personally, but I know a lot of people are, so if you like it then that would be a good second yellow option for the E36. Since the E46 was brought up...I love the Lagoona Blue on it.
