3 Words.. 'Gotta Have It'

Came across some of these pictures of the 335i M Sport in Estoril Blue. Showing off it's true color.

The white balance in those photos are off. It's too blue.

I would say these are more accurate photos of what Estoril Blue II looks like, especially in natural lighting conditions.

Car looks lovely - I'm a big fan of these 'mid' blue colours (unfortunately not available when I ordered my car). What gets me is why doesn't the M Sport front bumper come with fog lights in some markets? Is it a cost thing?

See the answer from our Q&A with the F30 Product Manager

Quote:
Why does the US M Sport model on display have no fog lights, unlike the European model?

For improved race capability. We need the air intakes for air. That’s why the fog lights are out. Because you have more driving on the racetracks than in Europe and you have different climate zones (some places are hotter). European models will keep their fog lights.

Seems silly or a lie to me. If people want to race them, they can take the fog lights off themselves. Far more people in the US will drive through fog than race the car on a track. It's a cosmetic package, not a performance package......

My friend's new A6 has fogs integrated into headlights. I don't get it why BMW still makes separate housings for fogs.... could just have nice intake and that's it.
