Really like the color. As with you, the estoril blue was a last minute change for me. Saw it on another car and really liked it. I moved from a 2014 touring to this 330i F31 and it definitely has an...

Just got my 2017 f31 and the warranty is still 4 years/50,000 miles.

However the "free" service had one year knocked off... maybe cause the oil change interval is shorter.

Nah... swapping out my current '14 for the '17 and it will be estoril blue with the non-run flat tires.

That MB wagon sounds great. I bet MB sells at least seven of them.
