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.

Congratulations Chief Brody,
It's looks fantastic! When did you order it?
Chief Brody commented:
July 28, 2012, 1:08 pm

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?
Chief Brody commented:
July 28, 2012, 3:53 pm

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!!
Chief Brody commented:
August 5, 2012, 12:27 pm

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...
dmiller68 commented:
December 9, 2012, 8:11 pm

Yes, they are only 18"

How easy is it to clean, is it a pain like black? I am coming from a black car, and black is a PITA

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.

Man I can't wait to pick mine up. I was debating on getting a white m sport or the blue one. I saw both in person, saw the white one last as I was about to put through an order for AW. It was obvious after seeing both that one has to get this in Estoril Blue. EB makes the m sport package much more special.

Tell me about it. I test drove an EBII, and ordered white. White looks sooo good. But blue looks sooo good...

Hi there, love the car especially since its a 335i. I have my F30 on order with same msport package in the Estoril blue. I would like to know how good is the sound system in your car, assuming its the standard HIFI loudspeaker system? I ordered this as an optional on my 320i... I couldn't afford the extra for the Harman Kardon system. Thanks

Found this older thread while surfing bimmerfest. Just had to post pics of my Estoril Blue II 328i M Sport. I have had it 1 month now with 4K miles already; love driving this awesome machine! Congrats to all who made similar choices.

Down here it is a colour exclusive to the M Sport package.

Maybe it's the same in the US?

+1

However, Alpine passes can make most people look like professional photographers

I'm guessing that is either Stelvio Pass or the Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse

How did you order the F32? My dealer doesn't even have pricing yet.
cla_bos commented:
June 24, 2013, 7:01 pm

Worked with dealer to price out a car based on info known, secured myself a spot in their queue. Actual order was put through this morning with BMW AG. Looking like a late August ED!

435i xDrive, ZMM, ZMT, ZCW in Estoril

Estoril Blue was switched from Melb. Red last minute and I am so glad I did it. Looking at so many color threads it had to be this color. The pic that sold me was the HRE wheel pic that someone posted did it for me. It's different but beautiful. Expect it mid august and have my eye on aftermarket rims and wheels to go with it plus some other mods eventually to top it off. AWESOME COLOR !!!

I think this color is going to be my next BMW. I went with AW the first time.

My wife and I went with AW on her 550i for something different. Usually darker colors which I think shows off the M Sport lines much better. I enjoy washing my cars and getting them detailed when necessar. Part of the fun with these cars!

I'm sure he appreciated that! I took my dad on our last trip to Germany, he had more fun than we did.

Hi all, just picked up my new to me 2013 EBII 328i M Sport a few days ago. It has M Performance Exhaust, H&R Sport Springs, and 20" BMW Double Spoke 361 wheels. This is my first BMW and I'm in love!
