Finally brought my new Estoril Blue baby home

I placed my order for my 2013 335i M-Sport in April, and FINALLY picked it up on Friday. I detailed it over the weekend (Zaino) and got some photos:







Here it is with my wife's 2013 328i Sport:





I'm completely thrilled with the car!!!

I cant believe you had to wait that long!!! I would go nuts as well! Congrats! Looks great! My EstII is finished production and waiting to get on a ship. I have a feeling it may take a week or so because its a 2014 build. My CA doesn't see anything so the wait continues.

Are you going to TINT the windows?

My wife mentioned but I doubt it - not something I've done to my other cars.

Love the picture with the Key fobs But why twice the "same" car? Weren't you tempted to get a different brand, just for the sake of variety?

sniff...A moment of silence for my 2011 335i. I feel a little guilty for trading it (like I hurt it's feelings or something...) but I'm loving my new car.

I traded in my 2011 335iX on a 2013 AH3. While I like the enhanced refinement and high tech of the AH3 interior, I definitely notice the superior handling of the '11 is gone :-(

Nah... it was time to kick it to the curb. It was getting old and fat. Not the svelte car it was when you first met it.

Just imagine how my 09 is being 2 years older... Its lucky to even get out of the garage in the morning.

Unfortunately, that more aptly applies to the owner, not the car....

Just depends on if it's a good fuel pump day...

Just remember I kept my 06 330i for about 6 years....
