imo they need to look back on their color palette of the e36 era. the ones you mentioned are classics and may not be everyone's cup of tea, BUT i think everyone would like at least one of them.

i've never gotten so many compliments on my techno violet e36.

Looks like it's for sale as well

My gosh. Would love to see this next to my E92! I'm very curious of an E46 was ever produced with the color. Very exciting to learn of the E36's 🙂

Not feeling it... but I'd take Dakar Yellow or Estoril Blue any day of the week

The e34 540i looked pretty good in Techno Violet.

While I'm not a fan of such colors, it is encouraging to see BMW has the individual program already since the E36 era and there were actually customers that customised their cars in such loud manner back then. To see such a pristine example of bmws in this era, especially an individual car is simply mind blowing. From where I am, cars of this era would most probably have been scrapped and crushed ages ago given the 10 yr lifespan dictated by the government here. Beautiful example!

Completely agreed. A lot of non of my car friends love my E36 just because it's a Techno Violet. Don't know, and couldn't care less about the rest of the car haha.

Hell, Boston Green was also a great color!
