BMW E30 paint codes and color options:

The below list is the most comprehensive known paint colors we could compile. BMW did not publish a list publicly of this data. Therefore, we used the most reliable sources we could find and same up with the list below. With the modern day popularity of the E30, owners have repainted them virtually every color BMW had to offer whether it was an OEM option during production or not.

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 BMW E30 M3 paint codes are posted on a separate post and can be found through the E30 quick link below or in the menu above.

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.
