Theme Tuesdays: Techno Violet

1

BMW’s Techno Violet paint color is easily on my shortlist of favorite colors to ever be sprayed on an assembly line. I like it so much that I strongly considered it when repainting my first car, then again when I was going to repaint my second. Ultimately I opted out both times (largely due to the cost of complete color changes) but I still really like the color.

A deeper purple than the very similar Daytona Violet, it looks almost black in low light but really pops under certain lighting.

I’ve never done a paint coded dedicated Theme Tuesday before but here’s to a new trend.

As you can tell by the date stamp this photo is really old, but I remember the first time I came across it like yesterday. Note the “extreme” (for the time) tire stretch
Also taking it back some, who remembers when Msport flags and contours were the things to have for basically all e36 owners

This, an is300 sportcross, or a speed6 wagon (which didn't exist) are up there with family haulers I'd like but will never have

Something to be said for how good a simple e36 looks today… harder to find these days

Naturally an e92 had to be included in this post as well

I particularly like the use of M colors on the inside in an unorthodox, but still tasteful fashion

It carries into the engine bay as well
I thought I would find other cars painted technovoilet but surprinstly I didn't find many, however this USP Motorsports GTI will do
