I agree. I see this color everyday on an E36 M3 and it's pretty lame. Nothing special. Lemans and Montego are way better than this.

I wonder if they'll get rid of one of the other blues. I just got my IB E90 yesterday and despite months of worrying wether I'd like it, and wheter it'd be cool with the Beige interior and the 18's I absolutely love it, in my eyes it's the best combo I've seen.

Estoril Blue is very nice, but IB remains my fave.

I love estoril blue! If you live where's there a lot of sun (Not Seattle), the blue really shines. I love it.

Wow, an E90 Estoril Blue could be very cool. Do you guys think there is any chance that it will NOT be an extra 5K?

That's a cool photo. Do you know where interlagos blue would slot in there?

It would be 5k because it's a special order color and BMW has already rejected multiple requests to get E92s done in Estoril or Avus blue.

X5 M is Monte Carlo Blue, not Estoril. Same color is on the M3 Edition, as shown in a pic posted above. This color indeed does appear very close to Estoril, at least in pics. Because of this, I highly doubt we will see a return of Estoril. I think there is a much better chance that the M3 will simply get MCB as a standard color next year instead. I suspect that the rumors of Estoril's return could be somehow traced to someone mistaking an MCB M3 Edition for an Estoril M3, but I would love to be proven wrong about that.
