2017 M3 Estoril Blue II

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Finallllllly she is here!

Production number receive 12/2/16.
Individual approved 12/9/16
Production 2/18/17
Arrived on Orion Highway 3/25/17
Picked her up at PCD on 4/12/17
Attended one day car control class on 4/13/17
Drove home from SC to MI on 4/14/17 via I75N mostly.

Special thank you to David Aviles BMWDavid and Jimmy Bach at Steve Thomas BMW for making this happen. Also, special thank you to Nick/Kelli/Rachel/Andy at PCD for making this one hell of a fun vacation.

Also, met some great people while I was in town: jdarwin, a colleague from my office in town to pick up a m3 (small world!), a few BMW geniuses on site for training, and at the one day car control class. The BMW community is truly great and passionate about the brand.

Specs:
2017 BMW M3
Individual Estoril Blue II
DCT
ZLP
CSAT
19" silver wheels
M-performance exhaust with CF tips
M-performance carbon fiber rear spoiler
M-performance front splitter
M-performance stainless steel pedal
M-performance decals on rocker panels

No mods planned unless you consider m-performance floor mats.

The combo of EBII and silver wheels is perfect IMO - looks elegant and sporty at the same time. lad I decided to pull the trigger on silver wheels!

I absolutely love this car and I can say after many many BMW's this is my absolute favorite one. In the small amount of time that I've had this car in my possession the amount of positive feedback from strangers is overwhelming; including the man without teeth at the shell gas station in TN! ha "Is that the new BMW M...well hot damn".

My friend took professional pictures but I'll connect with him soon. Here is what I have for now while she sits in the garage during full detail process; first coat of Ammo reflex and skin applied.

PCD delivery













Finally home!
Trakktape and blue painters tape worked perfectly! No issues at all. Never had to fix a single piece of tape during the 11h ride home.



Ignore the tape on the vinyl siding - last minute repair from wind storm. haha Bigger fish to fry! The red headed step child is jealous in the garage.



Baby's first bath!





Thanks for looking! More to come.

Additional photos as of 4/20:

Beautiful car. Love EBII (it's on my car) but just curious why you paid so much to get individual paint for a factory color on regular 3/4 series and no ZCP?

Very very nice!!!

That's the best blue I've seen on the F8x, I don't care that it's free on a 320d, it looks stunning!!

I love Estoril Blue II, I F N despise BMW for not making this a standard blue on the M3 and M4. Don't worry about the folks coming ohh I wouldn't pay extra because it's a standard 3 or 4 before the LCI.

ZCP was a tough choice for sure but I preferred 19" silver wheels and seats with lumbar support.

EBII is my absolute favorite color so it was a no brainer; like another member said it should have been standard on the F8x chassis.

I wish it was a standard color too. Love EB2.

I wish I had eliminated the ZCP for the seat lumbar issue alone!!! I've got a back donut that does the trick pretty well, but for anyone with lower back issues, these seats are murder.

It was great meeting you and talking BMW's at the hotel. PCD was an amazing experience. Your color choice is amazing! I love my BSM M2 but had individual been available, EB2 would have been at the top of my list! Enjoy your car in good health!
