Amy, Robyn and the great team at Sytner BMW Birmingham just sent over a teaser of my car ahead of collection tomorrow.

Can't wait to see it in person. If you're around Birmingham pop in and take a look and if you're after a smashing deal on a BMW then call Amy and the amazing Sytner BMW Birmingham team.

Will post some more high quality pics after collection.

Looks great!

I'm between a M240i or a 440i coupe in the same color combo so it's nice to see pictures of it.

Looking forward to more pics!

Thanks. Tough decision you have between two great cars.

I'm very partial to the 4 series so I would personally recommend the 440i Coupe. Main benefits over the 240i is just more room everywhere but you do sacrifice some of nimbleness and confidence that the 240i provides given its slightly smaller size.

Good news is whatever you decide you're going to end up with a solid ride with that B58 engine. All the best and look forward to seeing pics of your ride.

Random driving scenes

Thought would post a few day 1 random iPhone pics. SRB color is definitely a hit in my book especially when matched with ivory white interior - zero regrets. Will post a few more pics when weather improves.

is that as "green blue" as it looks in the pics? I know for a fact that a LOT of times colors dont translate well (Like my Estoril Blue 435.. in the sun it looks much different than in the shade, and neither of those colors are the one it looks like when you photograph it).

Snapper rocks blue looks VERY "greenish" in the pics but i wonder if its the same in person? I had intended to wait until my local BMW center got a snapper rocks blue car in, and park next to it in my Estoril Blue car and photograph the difference.

If you have any friends with Estoril Blue and was willing to do that, it would be awesome.

It's a very interesting color because to me even in person it seems to have a greenish shade to it. But others who've seen my car say it's more blue than green. It changes from different angles based on light and definitely photographs as more green than blue.

I'm heading up to my local dealer on Monday so will grab a pic in the parking lot next to one of their EB cars.

One thing for sure is the color pops and draws you in so enjoying it and still no regrets.

I've seen SRB in person and have ordered the color. I like it, but many won't I think. It's definitely a green-blue, almost turquoise. The amount of green that you see is dependent on the level of sunlight. But if you don't like green, I don't think you'll like SRB.

Thanks, really happy with how SRB looks in person. I saw you went with the blue stitching on the black seats on your GC which compliments SRB really well. I think your combo, mine and perhaps the opal/brown leather individual leather are likely the best combos for SRB.

Estoril Blue vs Snapper Rocks Blue

Was down at my local BMW dealer and took a few pics parked next to an EB M140i.

Thanks for that! Its definitely more greenish, thats for sure. It reminds me of the BMW individual color Atlantis Blue, at least in pictures.

I think it looks good with that white interior, I would just be worried about keeping that interior clean as I am not one who enjoys polishing leather, etc (lol).

Thanks again for the A / B side by side, that was really helpful!

You're right about it picturing like Atlantis Blue.
Also agree on white leather, I lived with oyster leather on my 420d for 3 years so developed a few tricks to keep seats clean :-).
