As for the color, it's borderline horrendous, but I believe the proper name is "champagne"

Friend of mine has an E30 coupe with an S52 swap and it's pretty slick. I'll see if I can get some pictures for you sometime.
I need to get a trickle charger....

As far as the color is concerned.... at least it isn't another shade of silver like all of the rest of the BMW's in history. E30's came in some really bad colors. Other than this and silver, the options were a few bad shades of blue, and some really nasty red colors. Very few were black.

And no, it's not champagne, the sticker under the hood looks like this:

There's been a bit of progress... No pics to show for it, though.

All of it has been cosmetic. Euro plate filler, I swapped out the antenna assembly, euro grilles, smoked front signal lenses installed. Euro trim is to be delivered on Wednesday. I will still have to fill the front plate mount holes in the new trim, though. I'm planning on running without a front plate, and the holes look ugly. I also ordered a set of sway bars, mounts, and reinforcements. Those will get installed with the rest of the suspension that I have yet to order.
