Can't believe it. I haven't seen another single Estoril M Sport on the road yet and today, when taking a colleague out to lunch and just when I'd mentioned how rare they were, an identical car to mine passed us on the Pershore Road in Birmingham! Don't know what model it was but it was Estoril blue and had 403 alloys. The driver looked late 30s and wearing a pink jumper

Was it you?

Hi, I just found this thread. Was anyone here at the Top Gear Live show in Birmingham on 27 October ? I saw a white sportline there with blacked out grills and a black rooftop .

Here's the one I saw in the Brecon Beacons about a month ago.


Lol, looks like there might be a influx of EBII showing up when the rest of us start getting them.
Could me mine, car was about 3 days old at the time! Was parked near the Storey Arms whilst I was legging it over Pen y fan.
It was a super run down from London and am very pleased with the car!
IMO compared with the equiv E90 it gives a much smoother ride, seems to be even better when cornering and has more 'go'. It has the feeling of being more lux and a bigger car. My old E90 320d M-Sport is in the familly and drive it occasionally and still is a great car!

Are F30 sightings becoming any more frequent? I live in Cambs and drive quite a few miles and still only see maybe a couple F30's a week. I did see an EBII msport on the A1 towards Peterborough last week, but thats the only sedan msport I've seen. I've seen a couple F31 msports, and a colleague also has an F31 white msport. I guess its good to still be fairly unique.

Still pretty rare around my usual driving routes... I have still yet to see an MSport (any model) on the roads (other than my own!). I have driven almost 4000 miles in mine now and i've been around Sussex (East and West), Kent, up to Yorkshire. I must not be paying attention!

I think they're quite hard to spot. Very similar at first glance to either the E9x or F1x.

Anyway, make the most of the exclusivity. In 12 months they'll be as common as muck.

Yeah i've seen a few F10's around and about, which make me do a double take.

There are also a few F20's around with xenons that look like the F30 when approaching them.

I get some very obvious stares from pedestrians and other motorists from time to time!

Muppet in a Melbourne Red Saloon on the M4/Severn Bridge

Spotted : Muppet in a Melbourne Red Saloon on the M4/Severn Bridge, Saturday 22nd December.

OK - so probably he had a bit of badge envy (having a 320d). And OK - my car was gleaming as it has just been valeted, but that's STILL no reason to drive past me, get into the lane front of me, doing <cough> 70mph, and get your mate in the back seat to take a picture of me - WITH THE FRIGGING FLASH GOING OFF! Yes it was bright, yes it did distract me, and yes, it was stupid.

Normally I would expect an "that was me" response to most of the 'spotted' posts on here.

Bet the owner won't admit to this one !

I seem to be seeing a lot more around Bristol and my commute along the M4.

Today there was a black sport version at the Mall heading towards the roundabout by DFS, an alpine white version on the M32 (both 12 plates) and an EBII on the M4 heading towards the southbound turn off for the M5.

Definitely seeing more about, though I still haven't seen an M Sport on the road, or a 330d! And very few have Xenons, surprisingly. Most common seems to be a white 320d 'sport', with no Xenons

Not a single M Sport F30 or a 330d on the road. Where are all you guys and gals?

Mine's back with 'mother' having a colonoscopy!

Definitely feels that way! Nice to feel quite exclusive, for now at least!

Hope it's not too painful and the treatment is quick and successful

I'm finding that too, of all the F30's & F31's I've seen on the road (probably 20-25 in total), only one has had Xenons, and they've pretty much all been 320d Sport Lines.

I think Sports are the most popular variety I've seen too and Xenons seem to be rare. I have seen a few of non Sports, the ED or SE have had a couple of sightings and a couple of M Sports but all the non Sports wouldn't total the Sport sightings.

I did see 7 on the way home from work yesterday, but they were all on a transporter on the way to the dealership so I may have to disqualify them

Spotting other F30s on the road I've hardly seen any with Xenons beside one EB II 330d Estate on the A1 Northbound yesterday around Darrington, but it looked like a company car so doubt it would be a member on here. Seeing Sports and ED cars with non-Xenons made me think that if I bought a F30 it had to have Xenons.. Thankfully I got one with the Vis pack and love it!
