I'm getting this combo. I personally like it. More striking and unique than blue with black / beige interior IMO.

Striking and unique for sure.... post pics (of course) when you get it. Maybe you'll sway me... maybe

I used the UK configurator to "build" a Tanzanite blue F31 with coral red interior and it looked pretty good.

Here's one:

This post shows all the interior looks of the M Sport. The red peering through the windows with the blue and chrome... I think it looks fantastic.

I have a question for you all, though: how much stock do you put in the rumor/theory that BMW is gonna split the F32 off as the 4-series, though? I ask because I am of the 'I'll believe it when I see it' mindset, as that rumor has been around for about a decade (I remember reading it in a 2001 issue of Road & Track, along with the rumor about a BMW V6). Plus, Mercedes, who really kind of started it back in the late 90s, has since folded the coupes back into their sedan ranges (both the C- and E-classes now have coupes).

Ack, that is horrendous. Heavy window tint should be mandatory. I love Estoril, and I love red interiors, but I also love yogurt and beer and don't feel the need to combine them.

The UK configurator www.bmw.co.uk came back up with updates this morning.

One addition I noticed on the M Sport is the new display of BMW Individual Trim XE9 -- Black Leather with Braided Pattern. Here is a close-up sample from the X5 Individual Brochure.

I personally like BMW's burl walnut wood trim (yes, even on an M Sport), but the Individual leather trim might be a good alternative to the hex aluminum for those willing to pay a little extra.

In order to be able to specify this trim u'll also need to specify the individual merino leather.

Yeah, I'm going to go with Red Bread on this one. Love the colors individually, but together it's just not working for me...

I concur. I'd still do it if my wife would let me...luckily she won't.

She's forcing sapphire black on me, so we'll be styling in black and red. I may just hire someone to clean the damn thing weekly. I hate owning black cars.

It's not so bad, and Sapphire has the advantage of looking dirty even when it's clean.

I haven't paid much attention to what sapphire looks like in person, I just assumed it was a metallic black. which would be fine for me (hides some of the swirls)...

I guess I may have to go by the DLR so I know what the hell I just ordered...

I'm a blue car guy, wife is a black car girl...I already have a blue car, and she thinks two blue cars is too many. I told her there is no such thing as too much blue.

I'm not a silver car person, so given those two facts...I'd Vote for you to get Estoril

Certainly leaning that way, but somewhere along the way, I convinced my wife that she likes red interiors. But I think I'm buying an orange Wrangler, so an Estoril car would be a nice contrast, and just add to the annoying factor.

I'm not really a fan of metallic paints, maybe because my ex had a metallic black Audi I just don't care for Sapphire. It's got a lot of gold in it, which just looks like dust to me. I liked the earlier BMW metallic black, Cosmos, which had silver metallic in the black base.

I also like silver for it's historical tie to Germany's racing color, not that my wife cares, or that a 328i F31 is exactly a LeMans race car.

The red and silver combo is nice, I remember seeing a Z4 traveling down the interstate top down in that color combo...I liked it a lot.

You'd think w/ a name like "sapphire" it'd have blue flakes...or I guess that may be more of a wish on my part

Not known for US market (not sure whether it'll be offered just yet). In Europe abt 3k-5k depending on the market.

way to old of a reply for me to remember what I was replying to (and I don't care enough to go look) However:

IIRC my reply was about the Blue M sport brakes.

The new info is that M sport cars come with the standard brakes in the United States...and the only way to get an upgrade is to order the "M performance brakes" which is ordered online or from your local DLR.
