Is this my cars color?


Recommended Posts

Just wanted to ask on here if the attached picture shows good enough evidence of my cars factory color. There is a good indication that the car has been resprayed with the same color but that’s just extra info. I have also sent an email to hdz.info@bmwgroup.com just to double check.

Of course someone could replace the sticker when changing color - but it doesn't look like that in this case.

Unless they’re a true expert at fake aging and patina.. lol


While you’re waiting on your build data from BMW Group Classic, you could dig around a bit looking at those ‘hidden areas’ on the body where there’s typically unmolested original paint… but methinks you’ll find more Inka.

Not zackly on topic, but I'm in Portugal and dealing with cars that were CKD from the factory and then assembled in Portugal.  From what I've seen there are no "labels/decals" identifying the colors here, and furthermore the Munchen sources have no information as to specs nor colors.  So, it's up to us to poke around into those places that a re-spray/color change isn't likely to show up, just to verify the original color... whatever it was!  And...to further complicate, I'm looking at a color that was never offered in the US for any of the '02 series!  Ah, the mysteries of time that we're trying to un-ravel!

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
