We got the Blues: Portimao Blue G20 vs San Marino, Yas Marina, Estoril Blue

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
There are quite a few great pictures of Portimau Blue in showrooms and on display at auto show booths. Here is a set of pictures and a video that give you a better visual representation of the color next to a few other BMW blues.

The online configurator shows a color that looks like it could be Estoril Blue. It's not. Portimau Blue is a slightly deeper and more vibrant blue. It appears to me that it may have a few flecks of San Marino Blue, but then again it was parked next to the CS

From left to right in the first picture:
San Marino Blue M3 CS Sedan
Portimao Blue 330i xDrive Sedan (G20)
Estoril Blue 440i Gran Coupe
Yas Marina Blue M3 Sedan with Competition Package

Enjoy!

Hey David. Glad to see that you are still active with BMWs. You sold me a '11 e92 M3 , night blue over rust brown, while you were at Passport BMW.

Anyway I was wondering if you could do another side by side with the following blues: portimao, mediterranean, and tanzanite 2.

Thanks...

Wow I never liked the F30 until now. It looks like a design tour de force compared to the frumpy and messy G20. What are BMW thinking?! The front grille is a disaster.

Completely agree that it has some San Marino in it. I said the same thing the first time I saw it. Can really see it when the sun hits it

There is no F30 in these pics, but for sure you're a BMW Design Master 🙄

So the BMW paint department took San Marino and Estoril and mixed them 50/50...viola! All look good. I'll echo the Interlagos Blue comment, that was a good one!

It's going to a great customer in TX. I had the rare and fortunate opportunity to meet them. M enthusiasts and some of the most generous and cool people ever. It's definitely going to a good home.
