    1. Taiga
    2-4. Agave
    5. Either Agave or Jadegrun. It is hard to tell in the bright sunlight in this picture.

    The wheels on car 2 were available on all the BMW models except 2002 and E21 3 series from 1974 to about 1981. The E3 sedans, E9 coupes, E12 5 series had 6 inch wide wheels, E23 7 series and E24 6 series had 6 1/2 inch wide wheels.

    Picture #1 is Turkis (turquoise) and is a metallic.
    Picture #2 is Tundra (metallic green) with wheels that came on 74-76 E3 models (Bavaria, 3.0s/si) as well as 77-81 E12 models 530i/528i and were 6Jx14.
    Picture #3 could be Agave or Jade grun.
    Same as above for pictures 4 and 5.

    The 1st one looks like Turkis but it appears a little too dark for that colour. I would suspect it is not a genuine E3 colour. Not everyone restores to genuine colours.

    The others look Agave to me. My father's E3 is Agave factory paint and pictures, despite the lighting, strike me as the same colour.

    I notice the CA plates in one of the pictures. Perhaps the owner reads this board and can tell us directly.
