Estoril does look soo E36 but did look good on the E46 M3

I think it could look good on the F10

I think Estoril will modernise itself when we start seeing lots of MSports on the road in that colour. It will be the default choice for a lot of people so familarity will make it a lot more common sight and therefore perceived to be the "in" colour.

It just reminds me of the 1990s Barclays blue they used when moving from the Sky blue that that used in the 70's.

I agree in part that it is a 'Classic' or 90's colour....but as above I think it will soon become a modern M Sport colour

For me, our last 4 cars have been 2x Black, Space grey or Tiag....so just wanted a change. However, i know in 2 years i would still be happy with Taig, not so sure about blue!

Have seen deals in the last few days by email offering the 330d at 299+VAT / month, not quite as keen as the OP but guess mileage/deposit needs to be compared too. Seems good value given a 320d M SPort manual is only 40/month less and the ED model 10 less again.

Seems maybe BMW are having to play the low cost Lease deals that Mercedes have been running for a while to get their sales up. That will hit residuals therefore strenghtens further the leasing argument.

I worked for a guy years ago that spec'd a lease Audi A3 in viper green with a red interior. The lease company refused to order it as they would never be able to sell it on.

Yeah, lease company said the deal I got had gone up by 20 quid.

That car in Estoril will look the nuts, my mate had just collected a new shape 1 series M sport in Estoril and it looks fantastic.

You have had a great deal there with the lease, I have said all along, you are better jumping onto a limited-time offer when the cars are at maximum discount instead of deciding on a car and then trying to get a lease deal on it.

Our last few lease cars have all been chosen by the deal on offer, even the Touareg I have ordered to replace the missus leased Passat CC Gt was on a special offer and is now nearly £100 a month more expensive.

I would also have opted for the black leather. I parked next to a black one yesterday with red leather and thought of you. It did look nice but Estoril/Black will look even better!

Got a Build week yet?

I saw a 320d M-sport in Estoril on 19" alloys at Sytner Sunningdale last week. It looked fabulous, but then I have always like Estoril.....

Cheers Paul! I still think the interior colours are a bit restrictive....

Yeah when I saw that deal I just knew i had a night to go for it or kick myself

Your mates wasn't this one at blue bell was it?
