AW is classic! Your CF mods shall look the best so do black stripe more so u shall save $500 ? Or more.
Blue is special and shall be eye catching.
I have white m3, had a whitebX5.
Now have deep sea blue x5. For f30?we chose EB over MR for M sports because of its uniqueness. Both AW and EB can carry red interior well I guess

Estoril Blue all the way for me - it's what made me decide to go for an F30 in the first place. That plus my Z4 is Alpine White, so fancied a change. Either way, they both still look good on an F30 so you'll like it in both.

It stands out in the street like a mofo. Not a single person has ever mentioned to me it's girly and I've been showing this color to people since the M-Sport unveiling. Quit hating.
Read my goddamn post. You get something up your ass because someone disagress with you? If I'm hating, you're being a bitch.

Honestly, I only got Estoril because it matches the painters tape we use for numbers at autocross events

Only issue is weather...really should do it tomorrow as it's sunny and car needs a wash lol.
Hey, I am on the same crossroads as the OP here, confused between EBII and AW, do you think I could come by and have a look at your car as well? There is not even 1 car on a dealer lot with EBII at present.
Oh, and another question I would like to ask would be about the most ED-friendly dealer in DE-NJ-PA area. Thanks!

i was in the same situation. I went with the safe choice white because I was afraid I could get sick of the blue after a few years...

i've had my estoril blue car for a week now . had an ibis white A4 before (more or less the same as alpine white)

im pretty happy with the color change, its very unique there are so many cars on the road.

i've had coworkers give me the usual "jesus you bought' a new car omg baller" talk, but on top of that its the "that color is awesome". usually don't get that with white, and yeah it IS AWESOME

Sure...

PM me and we can figure out how/when to meet up. I am near Rockaway Mall off of 80, not too far from the Poconos.

Actually, with AW in mind, I want to go AW with racing stripes in black... it looks very cool... with the cool quotient conflicting with EBII! I haven't seen either in person... but the pics are awesome...
Also, with AW with stripes, if you grow tired of the stripes, you can get them taken off at a shop.. so, it becomes plain AW.

After digging through choices of suspension, seats, brakes, and all else I didn't think I'd be stuck at color! oh well!

Blue shades can be very nice. One of the cars I owned a long ago was a darker than EBII electric blue. This color seems to work better on "sporty" looking cars like the Msport. I don't think it would look so good on a Lux or Modern line.

I think a deeper banana yellow might have looked good on an Msport as well.
I really like the electric metallic green like on a Mountain Dew can, but i don't know if that would look good on an Msport.
A metallic reddish orange copper might have sold me on an Msport too.

Msport looks great in white.
I went with Mel red as I've wanted a sport red for a while now. I wish it were a bit darker though, more like a Ferrari red or the non metallic red BMW offered just a few years back.

EBII seems to be the most popular color on Msports.
I wonder which color is actually the most rare on Msport? It's not gonna be EBII.
