Finally!! The Blue Eagle Has Landed Home - Portimao Blue M240i

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Mid-October order out of coastal NC.. Build completed about Dec 20 and after cargo shipment ~ 2 week delay for RAM Chip and no options were deleted thankfully.

Absolutely love the Blue color & the Black Leather Interior with Alum Trim & HK Audio. Car drives like a dream and fast as shxxx... Took it easy driving home about 90 miles to our Coastal SC Home. Also definitely RWD bias, didn't feel like I was driving an AWD Vehicle, love the transmission and used both manual modes a few times. Like the HUD feature also, really cool.

Have great weekend everyone!!! Edit, I added few more pix bottom of page one on Sunday

Congrats on the new ride! It's so hard not to speed. 65 feels like 30 and 100 feels like 65 lol 😂

Congrats Yanks, it has been a journey.


Posting pics: I use the iOS app, if it's oriented correct on my devices, it will show correct on here.
Different software still deals with it differently, I can fix and re-post if required.

Very nice! Have the same color. Really pops, also seems to pick up colors around it and change in different lighting. Everything from sky blue to tinges of purple.

Same here. Ended up with the BG but I had a deal on both colors and it caused me a lot of stress. The blue is beautiful.

It's Race deck flooring that had year-end sale plus free ship; Love the floor colors!! Border colors were selected due to my October order of my Blue M240
