Do you an internet search for green BMW's running in the background all day?  

I do like that combo. The tan leather looks better then the ivory / champagne type colour.

I'm not keen on the leather colour and I think the price seems optimistic but I like the green

Popped into my dealer last weekend and spoke to my sales guy about this exact car as we were shooting the breeze with regards to stop gaps before my m2 turns up. I love the colour combo although the interior could do with being a slightly darker shade.

If it was mid 40s not mid 50k I could have been persuaded.

Every time I see a dark green car with a pale leather interior I automatically think of it is "Racing spec"

Unless I missed them, it seems to be missing the essential sunroof and sound system upgrade, but other than that looks close to perfect.

My first 156 was a dark metallic green with a light grey leather interior. I had not previously through of it as "Racing Spec" but it clearly was...

I liked it at the time but when I see one now, I don't love it...

Racing spec involves a nice darker brown leather interior.

It most emphatically does not involve light grey interiors. You know the word for those...

That having been said, I've only actually ever owned two green cars: the first Z1 and a Golf GTI 16v that was a rather sudden shade called "Montana Green".

My Fiat Coupe is clearly in Racing Spec - it's dark green with a black (cloth) interior.

I nearly bought another black Alfa GT V6 about 4 years ago and two things put me off, one being the pale grey interior (the second was the top-end engine rebuild done by Arnold Clark   ).
