Hi I am new to the fest and since I just got my Estorill Blue 328i, I thought, I'd share my pictures with you.

The one with the black e90 (my old car) and the blue f30 next to it is imho the picture that captures the real color the best.

I ordered it on 14th of June, so six weeks delivery time. But I am in Germany, so the whole journey is way shorter ;-).

How would you say it compares to the original Estoril Blue?

I haven't seen the original, but the sales lady mentioned that it was essentially the same color with a slightly different name.

May I ask what tires you have on those 18's? They look like A/S from your recent photo?

Waiting to pick up my M-Sport in Nov. Thanks for the pics!! Just puts the nail in the coffin for my color choice. Love it!!

The tires are 18" Bridgestone Potenza Summer Performance Tires.
All Season Tires are quite rare in Germany and usually only old people with small cars (so small that you could use them as a shopping cart) use them ;-).

Glad my pics help you.

This is one purdy color. For me it's going to be this or Melbourne Red.

Did I read that Fog Lights aren't available in the US?! Those of you stationed in Germany could be able to get this rectified quite easily.

Looks a little darker than the original estoril. My M Roadster was Estoril Blue and I loved it. One of the best M colors besides Interlagos IMHO.

The rims look tiny on the M sports...are they 18"?

Maybe i'm more used to the 19" on my 335is...

18s and BMW increased the sidewall height on the F30s. probably partially due to tire damage complaints on the E90.

17s on the F30 are equivalent to 16s on the E90
18 to 17s
19s to 18s
etc

Well it seems to not show dirt as bad as black and it cleans up pretty good.
