My Estoril Blue F31

I picked up my 2014 F31 in Estoril Blue with the M-Sport and M Performance package last night, after trading in my 2012 Audi S4. I'm thrilled to be back in a wagon after owning a 2004 Audi A4 Avant for a few years prior to buying the S4.

It was pretty much a no brainer once I drove a touring with the M-Sport and M-Performance and saw a F30 in the Estoril Blue.

She won't stay stock for long, as I've already purchased the black kidney grilles and the painted reflectors which will be installed once the weather warms up a bit. She'll eventually get lowered, light weight wheels, and exhaust, with a few other things I'm sure.

Planned mods - *updated*
1. Minor cosmetic: kidneys and reflectors
2. Coilovers: KW V2 installed - Pics
3. Wheels: BBS LMs (20x8.5" fronts and 20x10" rears) installed - Pics
4. Exhaust: AWE Tuning Touring exhaust with performance mid pipe

Recent pic:


Snapped these pics a couple minutes after leaving the dealership though she didn't manage to stay entirely clean with all the road spray from the snow melt.

Step 2 and 3 in planned mods ordered (see first post with update).

Thanks to Andrew (Presario) for the help and to Eric & Tam @ Supreme Power Parts in getting the wheels sorted .

Now the wait begins.

Hello Martin,

I' very interested to see first pictures with the BBS rims. Did you order real BBS LM or "just" the style? I'm asking cause I cant find on their homepage the size 10x20 which fit on a BMW with 5/120.

The real deal, hence the 4-5 week wait.

Thanks. I was back and forth on these and the Volk TE37 Ultras and figured I'd go the classic route since a more favorable size for my liking was available.
