A few years ago I saw some pics on here of a m5 touring with a 2 tone "peanutbutter and jelly" interior. I remember the car being purple. I can't find pics of it now...does anyone know the car I'm talking about and have pics?

To help understand: a nice read.... from here

What are Fashion Fads of the 90's decade?

I take it you were born in the 90s, lol. Seriously, a lot of color, but not the bright colors of the 80s same colors different hues. A bright pink from the 80s was a loud red in the 90s. A bright neon green was a forest green. Loud yellow was toned down and had some orange in it. Colored jeans, any color, colored shoes as well. I had a pair of dark green leather shoes. 80s and 90s were similiar but 90s had darker colors as the 90s was more "ultrarealism" etc. 80s was more fantasy.

A lot of the 80s stuff you see now, with respect to the colors. I'm even starting to wear it again myself. 90s was like, White jeans, stonewashed jeans just a straight pale blue, cheap jeans denim was pretty poor quality compared to now nothing soft or luxurious. 90s was like a lot of high profile brands, Versace, Gucci, Prada, but in really ugly ways not as chic as it is now. Some people were still wearing like 80s acid washed jeans. 90s was like having holes in your jeans, suspenders.

90s was a lot of uniforms, looking like a postal worker, construction worker, etc. 90s was also androgynous; whereas men were effeminate in the 80s in the 90s women were the ones dressing like tomboys. girls wore baggy jeans, suspenders, didn't accentuate themselves like they do now. sort of like a crossdressing chic it was hot then but hard to do now.

90s was Carhart, Dickies (real Dickies, not what they have now), Timberlands (original ugly, hideous tims), Rockport (orthopedic shoes). Basically 90s style was really ugly and hideous, even compared to 80s fashion. towards the end 90s was a lot of Polo Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger, though that probably started in the early 90s on the coasts by the end of the decade everyone was wearing it, out in Idaho, Utah, whatever.

90s fashion was expensive, overpriced and typically either designer driven. when grunge and urbanwear became popular, designers capitalized on 90s fashion and effectively killed it. Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs took over grunge and put a nail in it's coffin. Polo Jeans Company and Tommy Hilfiger symbolized an end to baggy jeans, at least the cheap variety. Iceberg was hot and expensive but you wouldn't wear anything they did then right now.

Variety stores killed 90s fashion. Back then variety stores were just taking off, Abercrombie and Fitch weren't chic and The Gap was still popular, but no one really paid any attention to them. Old Navy was a f* joke. But variety stores got it together in the 00s and killed off the last of 90s fashion.

Hi good people,
I still lurk around here.
I see the car still unleashes passion, either for or against it.

It now has 190K Kms, and goes strong as ever. I will book it this spring for a tune up at an M Specialist, because of a 2000 rpm stumble when cold. Otherwise, it goes as ever (it had better, after all the maintenance done to it).

Still for sale, btw, for around 20K Euros. It would be less, but the Swiss franc is still so high...

Guy's, you really have to see the car as a whole to appreciate it !

I would never have thought to buy a car with such a colour but after viewing all the pics. the car is truly stunning.

It was on my "to inspect" list before I bought my Touring but unfortunately was not for sale at the time.

It's a very luck man that will get this piece of history.
