Poll: Color choice??? Laguna Seca Blue???


Recommended Posts

Thought I see what what you guys think...It's time to paint the 74 2002tii. Currently it is a non stock charcoal grey(below) that looks like a bmw color...maybe something from the 80's. Any how the color was going to remain the same to avoid the whole headache of a color change. But if it's ever going to change now is the time. Chamonix, Inca, or Laguna Seca Blue. anybody have pics of 02's in these colors, or another color that you might suggest? I know laguna seca blue isn't original...but it's just so sexy. Thanks for your input.

The dark metallic silver was called "Anthracite" if that's any help. It's a pretty nice color up close. Nicer than some "dark silvers"...

For what it's worth, I really like "Riviera" and "Atlantik"... They're not as flashy as Laguna Seca, but really nice deep non-metallic blues...

Actually, the 80's gray is Delphin. I've spent time around a bunch of E28s and E30s in the color, and it's beautiful if it's well maintained. Once the clear starts to go it just looks dull.

Go for Laguna Seca blue. I really want to see a Leguna Seca blue 02 with either 3.0 CSL style M stripes or Turbo markings, and I'm probably never going to get around to doing it myself.

76 S52 swap of dooooooooom

90 Range Rover classic (because 02s just weren't masochistic enough)

Polaris looks great on 2002s I would go back to that color.

Changing the color of a vehicle the right way requires a lot if work. You have to take things to a shell level to get it right or you could go back to Polaris and save time and money. Bottom line: it's up to you and your budget to what level you want to take your vehicle. m2c

The PO of my car painted it close to Laguna Blue. I call it roundel blue. I get many compliments but I personally don't like it. I'll attach a photo of it along with a silver color I wish I could afford!

Here is a link to a good chart many of you have probably seen that lists all of the original colors: http://www.02restoration.com/bmw-tech-tips/bmw-2002-paint-colors.html

    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
