New F30 320D M Sport Auto in Estoril Blue and Corel Red

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
a few pictures of my new UK spec 320D M Sport Auto in Estoril Blue and Corel Red leather, fitted with adaptive suspension and flappy paddles fresh from the dealer. The colour combination is very much a Marmite combo, but I love it













best regards
Kev

Congrats. First, I must say I'm a bmw fan through and through. However, not digging the red and EB combo, too cartoonish. Love the ///M sport( have it myself), but don't see why you'd put the ///M on the side, especially a 320. Nice car regardless.

The M badges are now being fitted by BMW on the new M-Sport spec cars so ask BMW UK about that lol.

I can understand why they shouldn't be fitted, it's a very similar argument with the Ford "RS" prefix as it 'de-values' the real M-Power or RS specced cars.

De-values might be the wrong choice of words but I think you can understand what I'm trying to say.

The Red leather colour is more accurate in the interior photograph rather than the open door photograph, but I can understand the Love it or Hate it mentality, I was just totally bored with bog standard colours on cars, call it a mid life crisis at 55

regards
Kev

I really like the new ///M badges on the side. I would not debadge it and I could care less what others say.

The red leather really pops, wow.

Really like the color combo. Hopefully they bring coral interior to the M3/M4

I wasn't happy with the TomTom up high on the windscreen so I've installed one of the Brodit proclips and active holder for the TomTom Go Live 1005 over the vent to the left of the steering wheel.

I do like fresh air in my face but the position of the driver side vent relative to my hand on the steering wheel meant my hand was getting overly cold so I'm using the passenger side vent to get the fresh air which avoids my hand and the Brodit kit is fitted over the closed vent.

re the ///M badging, I noticed today that the alloys also have the ///M badge on them

Kev
