Is Estoril blue no longer available?

On BMWUSA there is no longer an Estoril blue option when building an f30. Is it only available on the 2 and 4 now?

Hmm... I just went and saw that too. Maybe because of LCI? And now wait for the all the 4GC people to hop on here and say they are saving it for a more sporty car.. EB looks way better on the F30 than it does the F36. As where Carbon Black and MG look better on the F36.

They must have taken away estoril as an option for the f32 within hours ago cause I checked to see before I made the original post and it was still an option. Maybe the 2 series is next. I also noticed that estoril blue is an individual color for the f80. They might be trying to keep the color more exclusive for that reason.

no one buys estoril blue other than well enthusiast types on this board. i'm glad i got mine while i could (and the dealer actually said it was basically rotting on the lot, since no one wanted such a wild color.... ).

america has become such a boring place color wise. the W205 C class for example in europe comes in red, and brilliant blue. in america, nope. comes in like 27 shades of silver black and white

I agree with a major Harrumph!!



We used to have color in our cars and black and white on our TVs. Now we are wanted realistic colors in TVs and black and white cars (Silver is just a shinier gray).

Good point about that bland colors. I kind of wanted a Melbourne Red car, but so many people would be judging me at work. Plus police officers...

Who the hell cares? Imola Red is the BEST color I ever had. I can't quite decide, but I think I actually like Melbourne Red better than Imola.

Research has shown that red cars get no more tickets than any other color.

Depending on the people at work. if they are cool and well adjusted decent human beings, they will appreciate the car for what it is and not see you in any bad way. If they are shmucks that need to judge you for their own in adequacies and short comings ......... Screw them!

As far as police, just smile and wave hi as you fly by. They will appreciate the kind gesture so much, that they will not notice you registering 115MPH on their radar detector.

And if the nice police officer is not overcome by your initial charm and pulls you over any way, just remember the eloquent words of Steve Martin. the words that will get you out of any thing!!



This is your life, do what you want as long as you do not try to hurt others.

This would seriously making me want to buy out my current lease instead of leasing another BMW.

EB2 is such a great color. I don't want red, and while beautiful, the other colors aren't as sporty, fun or loud as EB.

I bought my EB 428GC cash out the door. It, and my high school car, the 73 AMX, plan to be together for a long time.

The AMX is grateful I found it a hot young thing with an outstanding front end and a respectable rear end.

I also drive customers, granted mine is EB. The same rules apply except do not moon your customers. Maintain professionalism even if they do not and as long as you and your product are solid, they do not care what you drive as long as you fill their needs.
