the factory standards for the contrast-colour on a 3.6 were
1) diamantschwarz-met. (181 M) - or
2) sebringgrau-met.
-
if the car itself was -sebringgrau- the contrast wud normally be -diamantschwarz-met. HOWEVER
first owner could choose ANOTHER or NONE contrast-colour against an -extra pay- (the original-build-sheet for your car shud show if the -contrast-colour-
was -factory standard- or -extra pay option-)

ask BMW GB -customer service- to send you one, as long as it is for YOUR
car (they might wish to see a proof of ownership) it shud be ok -
when you call avoid the 'you can't have it-lady', there is a very helpful guy
who will help you, very unfortunately I do not have his name (this info comes
from another member in this forum after I hv told him to try, again I regret can not recall his 'forum-name')
Good luck ! :typing: :M5thumbs:

My '90 Sebring Grey car has the Diamond black met. lower trim and as mention above by M5touring reg your local dealer should be able to provide you with a build sheet if you ask your parts man nicely and give him your VIN. This should tell you whether or not the car had contrasting trim originally. Personally i prefer it with,but thats up to you!!!!!:byebye:

but they are all, are they not ???
ok, hiha I know what you mean BUT it shud NOT matter at all -
the build-sheet is just a 'screen-print' from the PC-computer -
there also is a language choice so that you can have yours in english-
just give it a try, good luck :typing:
-
PS: have you had a look under your seats ?, sometimes there is a build-sheet
under there, often under the back-seat-bench, in a plastic-pouch -

weird!

this looks like he's talking about the m5 i just bought!

It is sebring grey, has a sebring grey rear skirt, darker side skirts (diamond black i assume) and the front valance is all sebring grey, but the very lower front splitter bit below the headlights seems to be unpainted black/grey....

I'm probably going to get it all the same sebring grey when i get the few bits of bodywork tidied up.
