photoshops of 135i coupe's color offerings

not perfect I'll admit. But if you're like me you like to dream of other color possibilities, I got tired of always seeing it in the red/orange even tho it's one of my top color picks... I'll do some more, I'm going thorough the colors of the 335i coupe.

I'll refine to a higher degree, once I get more done, the colors I like better.

edit: fixed crimson red, is was off.

edit 2: I made a tutorial I made on photoshoping paint colors accurately on cars

http://www.agentfx.com/carPaint_tut/...tTutorial.html

should help if any of you want to do the same.

STOP!

I was all set on a color (Sedona Red). Now I am thinking Montego blue or White. If the Sedona Red is as orange as I think it will be, I may pass.

Great job!

Are all those colors going to be available in the US, though? I've got my mind set on montego blue, and absolutely nothing will sway that decision. :thumbup:

I just took the colors for the 335 coupe, not sure what colors will be available in the US. yeah when I made the montego blue version I was suprised how good it looks. I'm still torn in color choice. Black, White, Orange(default picture color), or Montego blue.

Black, always looks good, is gratifying to polish, easier resell, easy to by and paint aftermarket parts, and shows dirty quickly
White also looks good, doesn't fade, also easy to by and paint aftermarket parts, hides dirt and finger prints, imo needs tinted windows.
Orange, I had a henna rot 1980 320i as my first car and loved it, fun color, shows off the car well, might be more ticket prone, hides fingerprints but not dirt.
Montego Blue (or whatever color is close) Would be top choice but in person in some lighting conditions it looks a little a little purple. I'd have to see it again in person it always looks good in pictures. Both the fun color choices are nice choice and stand out among the all the LA white black and silver cars.... buuut every car I've owned at times I wished it was Black... or white.... argh!

now you see why I photoshoped all those colors

I'd have to go green just to be different with some terra seats although black and white look very good. Seems like 90% of all BMW's I see are black or white though.

Now I wish I hadn't opened this thread since the next 20 minutes will be wasted thinking about which color I like best.

Very nice.
It looks like that some have off contrast but the first four after the red stock are very well done.

yeah I had to force the contrast to get some colors in the ballpark. I fixed the crimson red.

really not sure what color i want. Its a toughy, I think I'll wait until closer to the release date, and interior/exterior combos come out. Because if this car looks anywhere near as good as the new M3 does in white, im sold. But I also love the new 3 coupe in that dark silver with red/black interior.
