Sounds good mate, what HP is the new one?

Estoril is a nice colour. Interior wise what about Silverstone II if they do it?

Otherwise black leather with that colour

Estoril would kinda be my automatic choice, may well be loads of them about in a year or two but its such a great colour it would be hard to ignore.

Interested in hearing what the lease deals are on the new 330d. We hear lots about cheap Merc deals but never much about BMW deals.

Yeap, its a two year lease so think i could get the most out of Estoril!

The lease started at only 279 + vat over 24 months! Obviously few extra's added a bit on....

How did you manage to get such a great deal?

Do the red leather mate, why not?

Wouldn't do red leather with the blue, reckon black could be hard to beat. Beige wouldn't be great, something light like Oyster would be nice but not available it seems.

My vote is with the Estoril Blue and Black Leather, that's what I would go for.

The options are very limited at the moment compared to the E90 configurator.

This is perfection. Just a shame it's individual paint and leather which means it costs an extra 2k!



Red on red is something you wont see every day.

Red/red needs to be reserved or the top of the range, like the M3 IMHO.

For me (as you know) it's between black & red or estoril & black. Beige just looks dirty to me and will only get worse over time. The grey & red is a good choice if you don't want to go black on the outside. Can't get away from estoril looking great though .

I've seen a couple of white ones knocking about the place. They look great too but I know you're not keen.

At the end of the day, as you're leasing, it doesn't really matter (so long as you can live with it for 24 months), so why not be a little bit bold. Fuck it - estoril & red

I like the blue with black leather.

I'm really warming to the F30 now.

BMW are claiming very quick performance figures. The 328i is also very fast.

Enjoy ticking the boxes.

Estoril Blue and Black Leather is free for a 330d M Sport.

I'd like more details on the lease deal if you don't mind.

Not planning to change cars just yet but at that price my next may be a lease. I probably get close to that in yearly depreciation, tyres and servicing.

I was referring to the tanzanite blue and opal white leather. It looks brilliant on the CGI configurator but im not sure what it would be like in the flesh.

White with red would be a great choice too.

Did you try the 328 or were you sold on the diesel. Haven't tried either but interested how they compare.

Also interested in the lease deal including your extras and how much was the deposit?
