My Estoril 328i M Sport

Is da bomb!
M Sport
Lighting package
Premium package
Technology package
Sport automatic
Heated front seats

I've had it for 6 days. So far, no steering wheel issues or any other problem. It's tight, quick, and packed with more technology than I can digest so far.

I'll post a review after I get some real miles on the car. So far I have just over 200 miles on the clock.

Gorgeous! Congrats!

No suspension mods? Looks lower than others I've seen...

It's bone stock. The only thing I've done is the "Euro" front plate. I'd love to lower it but I think I'll wait a few months at least.... I'm just super stoked to have the car!

Awesome! Can't wait for mine (Nov delivery). Been getting mixed info on 1) ride ht and 2) whether my xDrive M-Sport will have fogs up front. (Dealer kinda clueless when it comes to these 2 things.)

1) You will have a ride height that is 10mm higher than normal RWD M Sports

2) No fog lights for any US M Sport 3s

this may sound ricer-ish, but has anyone considered taking the mesh piece out in front of the intercooler? i like the looks of them personally.

Thank you, Thank you everybody! I cant stop staring at my car! It really has exceeded my expectations in every aspect... looks, performance, ride, handling, comfort... even the radio is great and I didn't get HK!

nano10, I've had that Euro plate sitting in my garage for 6 months specifically to go on this car!

gerbs, I'm sure I'll see you somewhere by the coast or in the canyons!

I haven't seen an Estoril F30 besides my own yet, so I'll be looking for you!

I have only one bone to pick.. As someone that lives in a state that forces me to ruin the front end with a license plate, I hate that you had a choice and still put one on.

But to each his own, good luck with it.

I don't have a choice. California requires them too. I'm going to get a ticket for sure... But I've always loved the look of a "Euro" plate. I'm going to keep that on until the cops take me away! My actual CA plate says "CAMAYA"
(I have to transfer it from my old car) so I'm going to see if that flies with the judge ....

No F31? Or is that later?

I've been without a front plate in CA for 10 years, most places they don't care. I suppose if you live in a really uptight HOA hell type community, it might be an issue, but the CHP will never care.

I'm told that the Canadian version will be like the Euro-version with fogs and the 8 slat M Sport grill.

I couldn't wait any longer... my Subaru is worth about $2k on a good day and it needs about $1500 worth of repairs (no AC, front brakes, fuel gauge...). I'd prefer the F31 but for now the sedan is pretty damn nice. I'm happy. BTW, the dealer offered me a generous $500 for my Subaru, needless to say I still have it....
