nice shots! Trying to decide between Sport and M-sport... Still just as torn but that was a great side by side comparison.

Lovely photo shoot though. Thanks

What kind of wheels are the ones that are on the M-Sport F30? And what size? They look amazing on the car.

The license plate says MSPORT....

Anyway, it's Le Mans for me. Pissed it's not offered on the 3 series right now.

Anyway, I always wonder what people think when they walk by and see people posing/photographing their cars...

Great pics...

I'm trying to decide between the early e53 x5 4.6is which comes in Estoril and the late e53 4.8is which comes in LeMans... I don't think I could go wrong either way though!

Estoril Blue is looking awesome. I am glad you did the side by side. I was hoping to see this.

I believe the X5 was Monaco Blue. It's the color on my '07 X5

I always thought from the "build Your Own" pics that Estoril was too light. You proved it isn't. Great pics, nice job. But the big question is, where'd you find a parking garage that empty? In Charlotte it would have to be 3 AM on Christmas Day.

As it turns out, the recent economic changes of the last 6 years have been GREAT for finding abandoned, empty parking structures in the Midwest region!

I've forgotten how beautiful the color blue is...maybe time to add a blue car to the line-up. Still can't decide if I'd rather go blue or red for the next car.
