Here’s some telling photos comparing the Estoril Blue II color available only on the F30 3 Series M Sport with the Monte Carlo Blue exclusive to the F10 M5 sedan.
Here is the first set of comparison photos of the 1M coupe versus the E46 M3. Many feel that the 1M’s squat stance with aggressively flared fenders harks back to the similarly aggressive stance and shape of the E46 M3. We tend to agree. Judge for yourself in these photos.
