The BMW E30 is the second generation 3 series following the E21.  The E30 was manufactured from 1982 thru 1994.  Although the E21 only came in coupe and Baur editions, the E30 was offered first in coupe, then sedan, convertible, touring and Baur editions.  The E30 is also the first 3 series to be offered in a diesel engine and all wheel drive versions.  

Over its life cycle, total production of the BMW E30 was 2,339,520 units, this includes all models.  The OEM BMW color options for the E30 is quite extensive and also a bit elusive.  All colors were not offered in all markets of the world and all colors were not available on all models. 

The below list is the most comprehensive known paint colors we could compile.  BMW did not publish a list publicly of this data.  With the popularity of the E30, people have painted them virtually every color BMW had to offer whether it was an OEM option or not.  Over time we will go back and refine it as we dig deep for more information that will make the list complete.

For now, make sure to enjoy the rare options and google examples of them.  Seeing the rare colors make you appreciate the body design and lines of the car in a different way.
