Tanzanite blue F31 328i M sport

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I got my F31 M sport two weeks ago, and the weather just hasn't done the car and color justice since. Well today I took some pics with my iphone at the gas station.

My thoughts of the car so far is that I like almost every bit of it. My E91 with 19" was nice to drive, but the F31 is just better at everything. Better handling, yet it is less "nervous" on the road than the E91, better comfort and less noisy. Personally I like the steering much better than in the E91. I didn't have adaptive steering in the E91 though. The new navi pro is really fast and the HUD is amazing (not only speed limit and current speed is shown in the window, but it also allows you to control your phone, radio, spotify etc.).

About the color. When I ordered the car I thought the color would be lighter and was kind of disappointed when images showing a really dark shade, almost like imperial blue started to show up. In reality, when the sun (not that we have any of that in Sweden these days) hits the car, it is a more exciting color than Imperial blue. But if you are looking for something instantly eye catching independent of weather, I'd recommend EB II. With that said, I don't regret my choice.

Looks great. Seems lighter to me than imperial and personally, EBII was just too bright for me.

Best colour for F30/31, even better than Estoril.
Looks awesome.

Welcome to the Tanzanite Blue Owners Club Congratulations also on a beautiful car!

With regards to the colour it is very much a different colour depending on the mood of the day. If the sun shines it looks absolutely stunning and you can stare at the speckles in the paint for ages. On a wet day the car is darker and has a depth to the colour that seems to give the car a bit more of a gravitas.

EBII is nice but I don't think it has the same appeal, it may have the all weather wow factor but in all those weathers it is the same colour and there isn't the same depth. I much prefer the multiple personalities Tanzanite offers. I may be a bit biased though

Congratulations and yes it's the best color for the F30 (i am biased)

This should have been my car...


and by the way, when pumping gas, please please please put the cap on the intended slot...

there is a slop by the gas door opener hinge where you can put your gas cap...
dont let it hang it like that to scratch your body panel...

Grattis!

If you don't mind me asking: when did you order it? I thought I was quick and placed an order right after the premiere of the F31 in Sweden. Still waiting for mine (estimated week 46 ). Did you order it unseen?

Tack!

Yes I ordered it unseen and as soon as the price lists were available, sometime in July. It arrived at the dealer week 40.

Nice car! Have not seen this colour in the flesh, but I think I really like it. EB2 is obviously very nice too, but I think it will be pretty common down the track. This is just a bit more unique. Love msport f31s in general.
