Since so many members getting their F80, F82, F83 beasts, I thought it would be time to start this thread. I didn't see another one like it. If there is one, moderators feel free to delete this one.

Spotted Mineral Grey M3 this morning at 8:20 headed south on Waterman, crossing Bond Road in Elk Grove. I saw you, then you looked back.

Nice whip.

In the last two weeks or so, I've spotted two BSM M4's, a Silverstone M4 and a SO M4 in my city. I have only seen them once, but I have my eye out.

Have seen quite a few in Houston over last two months - attended a BMW CCA coffee meet end last year that had 5 or 6 (can't remember now!!) - 3 M4's and 2 M3's minimum with AY, YMB, SO exteriors and of course MG for yours truly. Also say M3 BSM and another assuming different M4 AY closer to where I live. Busy, busy!

I have not seen any other ones around my area. I know there a few from my area that are active on this forum and another so I'm kind of surprised I have not seen at least one.

Saw an Alpine White M4 with black CF looking hood and orange door handles on Mass Pike between Weston and Allston tolls (closer to Allston tolls). Car looked menacing! Drivers acknowledged each other.

I have yet to see a new m3 or m4 in the philly area. I see plenty of BMWs and some older m3s. Quite a shame since we have VAC motorsports here

Furball - this thread was about "spottings" not the lack thereof.
It's OK if it confused you, I know it happens often.

Randomly seeing a YMB M4 in Huntington Beach. I thought the guy lived in the same community I do but I only see him every few weeks.

Met a fellow Elk Grove M4 owner last night at Dickeys BBQ. His is MG, lowered, and has 20's on it. Looks sweet. Told me he has about 100 miles left until break-in service.
