Best color on e30?

Well it seems we have some difference in opinion on the best color for an e30, either regular or m3 body. Someone suggested we put this to a vote. Vote on your color, tell why and supply a picture of said color.

So far we have

avus blue


diamond swartz



alpine white


bronzit

cirrus blue

calypso

hellrot

silver

no brilliantrot?



...or else we can just say "red" and it will generally cover the bright reds (i.e. not calypso).

Also, is Avus a factory E30 color? I DO love me some Avus.

Avus > any BMW colour. Factory only on E31s, E34s, and E36s I believe.

So are we confining this poll to just factory E30 colors or ANY BMW color, or ANY color at all?

I love alpine white, avus looks to modern on E30's. Sterling has really been growing on me though.

For the record, the "Diamond Schwarz" you posted isn't diamond schwarz, just regular old schwarz. Diamond schwarz is metallic and much lighter color, and way more awesome.
