Talking Starting to see more E90s on the road...

Especially here in the San Gabriel Valley...seems like the rich Chinese people here really like the E90.

I think the E90 styling is really starting to grow on me...the front is really attractive and distinctive...the back is kind of strange...but I'm getting used to it.

I'm sort of starting to regret getting a ZHP instead of the E90, hehe....

Not seeing many E90's here in the NY/NJ area.

Maybe one every week? I'm sure all the ones I see are forum members too LOL!

You can't mistake mine since I have these ugly VA plates here in NJ.

I've seen one so far in T.O., 330i with sports pkg ... I'm hating it less now that I've seen one in the flesh, but that rear end still needs work ... hope they 'fix' it for the coupe next year ...

I'm in No. Va and haven't seen much at all; maybe one or two the last couple of months. But I'll be seeing one everyday hopefully starting next week. Taking delivery of an '06 330i TiAg, pp, sp, steptronic, and can't wait.

To be quite honest, I dont want to see many on the road. I want to stand out when I'm driving mine next month (I hope).

Very few here in the NYC area.

Local dealers are posting big ads with lots of E90 inventory as well.

Makes you wonder......

I was definitely the first in the Philly area for a while, but in the garage I park in at work there are two others now

I am seeing more on the streets now...time to trade it in for another unique car.

One of my neighbor got one and everytime we drove by each other, I'm sure we both thought..."gee..you had to get Sparkling Graphite too?"

Saw one sparkling graphite and two blacks in the Montreal/Laval area in the past week. It was the first time I was seeing other new 3-Series on the road. A black one was actually parked right next to mine when I was returning from a restaurant, and since the parking was almost empty, that was obviously done on purpose.

Gotta remember Ed...
1) Not a gangbuster year in the U.S. for the auto industry, and
2) The E90 is out early, not really supposed to be around 'til September
so all you'll see now are the early birds.

I've seen quite a few in the San Gabriel Valley too (all Asian drivers except for one middle aged white man in a white 330i sport). I've only seen non-sport 325s or sport 330s...the two extremes I guess.

I have seen at least one or two cars a day in and around San Francisco for the last week or so. More SG than anything else, probably followed by white.
