Estoril Blue F32 OEM+ M4 Replicas (Updated Pictures)

Hi, all!

I'm Matt. After years of driving Porsches, I've made the switch to the dark side. I just sold my 2009 Boxster yesterday. Pictures of the departed:



So, the Boxster was fantastic. However, driving a manual in Houston is not fun. Also, it was devoid of any modern technology. I was hungry for features! I had been stalking 4 series for a couple months. I noticed a leftover 2014 with tons of options at a dealer. After completing the sale of the Boxster, I went to the BMW dealership to see if I could make a deal happen. All it took was $6,000 off MSRP and BOOM!

Specs:
-Estoril Blue over Black leather with Alum Trim
-M Sport Pkg
-Premium Pkg
-Technology Pkg
-Driver Assistance Pkg
-M-Sport Brakes
-Heated Seats
-HK Stereo
-Storage Pkg (WTF is this?)
-Alarm

Mods:
-Tint (today at lunch)
-Painted front side reflectors (ordered)
- MPerformance Black side sill decals (ordered)
- M4 wheels (planned)
-Rear Spoiler (planned)

So far, I'm completely in love with this car. It doesn't drive like a Porsche by any means, but it's exactly what I wanted.

Stay tuned for driving impressions and mod updates. Happy driving!

Just got tinted during lunch....







It's an ugly day in Houston. And, the car needs a wash already. Whoa- brake dust!

Thanks for the compliments, guys. The tint is 35% sides and 20% rear. Only $169! Woot!

I'm so in love with this car! Lol

Hi all,

Finally installed my color-matched side markers from Brian at <crazymomo1028@gmail.com>. The quality is fantastic. BMW sure uses strong double-sided tape, however. I felt as if I was going to break the bumper ripping them off....

Before....GROSS AMBER....



After...AMAZING...

It pretty much felt like driving an X5 for the first couple weeks. But, I've become accustomed to the size. It has fantastic acceleration and steering feedback. Handling isn't too bad, either- although the body roll is more than I'd prefer. I do LOVE the ride. The 4er drives like a tank and makes lovely thud noises over bumps. LOVE THAT.

I'm 100% satisfied with the way the car drives compared to the Boxster. I bought the thing knowing it wasn't a sports car, so I don't expect it to be.

MSRP was $55. So, it was pretty loaded for 4-banger.
