"rare" is not always good. the color is rare because it was not popular and nobody ordered them. like the bysantz (rust) color e36 m3's were available in. the bysantz color is extremely rare because it was deemed ugly and nobody wanted it.

for some reason there has not been any bmw brownish color that has done well.

unpopular colors, whether you hate them or love them, don't sell well.

(disclaimer....i have owned a brown car, by choice, and my m3 is the "rare" purple)

Being child of the 60's / 70's I have done very well staying away from brown. I can remember my Dad having a company car given to him about every 2 years or so, came in some variation of brown or brownish cream color Ug!

So, my dilemma a 1 owner 76 Siennabraun.

The teacher who owned it let is sit behind the schools maintiance building for 3 years (Texas weather) 10 min away from my house. I'm not one for changing color on a car. At age 48 this will be my first brown car.

As they say the apple does not fall far from the tree.

That color is indeed only rare nowadays. I remember back in the '80s the vast majority of square taillight cars for sale seemed to be sienna brown or garnet red, both of which are considered rare nowadays. Malaga was also very common. Also back then, the bright colors weren't very popular, there were many inka and golf cars that ended up white or silver or some other more neutral color.
