I defniitely prefer Zircon to Scarab. But if you're going to change the colour why not change it completely? Do you know what colour it was originally? And what colour interior do you have? For an S1 V8 my favourite colours are Davos White (like mine!) or Burnt Grey. Or my all time favourite P6 colour - April Yellow, very rare, only done Jan '68 to Apr '69. Have a look at Rudiger's colour chart:

Zircon Blue - ICI Ref 4508
I like Scarab on an S2 but prefer Zircon for the S1 :)

Hi Gareth,
I'll have a look at my Zircon seres 1 tomorrow in the light and see what the decal says, I'm sure you'll probably have the info already by then but a little more info can't hurt. You never know what might crop up with disrepancies and so on.

The paint code shouldn't be too much of an issue for a full respray. You need enough paint that you'd have to go to an auto paint shop for it, and they will have have the mixing details available to them. Just tell them the colour name and year. Likewise if you get a spray shop to do it.

A red interior should set it off beautifully!

Get an extra litre of paint mixed up in case you need any repairs done later

I've seen that video, excellent 8)
Mine is in a matt polished through BMW colour that looks like P5 Admiralty blue :? I like the P5 colour but will probably go back to Zircon for authenticity too :)

Hi Gareth,

Here's a picture of my car, an early series 2 in Zircon Blue with 14inch Minilites on the Stelvio Pass last year.

The wheels were already on my car when I bought it but If I was going to buy them myself I'd look in to getting 15inch ones as the tyre choice is greater.

Good luck with the respray.
