Congrats on the new wagon.

Can't go wrong with the wheel choice either. P44SC would be my choice, but I might be bias as I've had two sets already. I'd love to see either in the brushed titanium matte finish on the estoril blue.

You can't go wrong with either, as I've had both. My sig has a link to pictures of my S4 which will have images for both wheel finishes with two different profiles (flat vs concave) to help with the decision.

I liked how the Brushed Tinted Clear changed depending on the light where in the indirect it would look darker while in direct it looked almost untinted. The titanium did that a bit too but was always darker. If you like a little darker, I'd go with Dark Brushed Tinted Clear and you'd get an in between of the two.

I havent looked at Dark brushed tinted Clear. Will have a look. Sounds good.
Will also have a look at your pictures.

Thanks for the input.

Yes. they Love Estates over here. We also had the RS2 which i think never made it to the US. I just sold mine.

BUT we pay 3-4 times the price for our cars. I could buy two F80 M3`s in the US for the price i payed for my 328i in norway!

Haha. OK. This car was totaly stock except from being an MTM RS2.

It was bought as i project car, but i never got around to start on it. I love the 5 cyl engine in the old audis. Sound great and can handle alot of tuning with some mods.

So many projects at the same time so i had to get rid of some stuff to get room for other stuff. Cant have these cars outside during Norwegian winters.

That was a good looking RS2. A rare find of an imported one was up for sale a couple if years ago locally but couldn't pull the trigger. Thanks for sharing.

I'll be checking in on your progress since we are so similar.

By the way, I'm actually going to be passing through Oslo in a few weeks. Not sure if that's close to you or if you're at least familiar with it but would certainly appreciate suggestions on dinner and drinking spots since that's basically all I'll have time for.

Nice color. I always wanted an Estoril E36 M3, so Estoril will always have a place in my heart.
