I have seen one other in a little over 2 months of ownership. Amazing since E46s are quite common.

I've seen only one. A blue one (didn;t catch whether 325 or 330) on route 50 between DC and Annapolis.

The new E90 seems to have taken the place of the VW Jetta as car of choice for teenage girls and women in their early 20s. Thats the demographic that I see driving the E90 around Jersey City/Hoboken/Northern NJ.

On my way into work a few days ago, I must've seen 5 or so E90s. Interestingly, most of them had temporary plates, so a lot of deliveries must be happening.

The general comment by others seems to be: "Wow, it looks like a 5. Too bad there will be 1000s of those on the road in a few months."

I lived there for most of my 20 somethings.... so true... for a while it was the pathfinder too, no? Or were those just the girls with letters on their shirts graduating from Syracuse?

That's funny. I grew up in Hershey area, and always thought Pittsburgh was in the middle of nowhere. I'll be taking mine "home" to Hershey area in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to all the great twisties there on the back roads. Not many here in flat Virginia where I now reside.

Even teenage girls and women in their early 20s knows the new Jetta looks like crap

Here in LA, I have seen a few in out west in Woodland Hills, Calabasas. Also seems to see more of them when you venture down towards Santa Monica. But still, the E90 is grabbing a lot of attention. Once I was walking to my car and saw a bunch of young teenagers pointing at my car and talking excitedly. When I was driving off, they yelled : Cool car!

ahh.. that made my day!

I've only seen about a half dozen or so down here in San Diego. Unsurprisingly, most of them SG; also an AW. Haven't seen any Arctics, I hope it stays that way, until I get mine, hopefully some time next month (dropped it off July 5th in Paris after doing ED).

Of the ones Iíve seen, sparkling graphite is, by far, the most popular color, followed by white, Monaco blue, black, and arctic metallic. Strangely enough, Iíve only seen one silver E90! I hope it stays this way, as silver is the color Iíll get.

I keep expecting to start seeing Sparkling Graphite out on the streets, since one of my pre-order concerns was that color's 'common'ness I've been reading about. To date, I've seen only two driving around here and they've both been Alpine White 330's - one with sports pkg and one without.

I have seen three so far on the roads in Austin. The most attractive was the SG 330i with ZSP. Exactly what I'm getting

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....
Oddly enough, I haven't seen one yet. Must just be dumb luck. I am kind of anxious to see one in real life. Actually, I did see one at my dealer, but I haven't seen one in motion.

There are many E90's in Houston. I saw a white one in the grocery store parking lot a month or so ago, which really energized my desire for the E90. I saw two or three yesterday in the space of ten minutes.

I have seen none on the road in Greenwich, CT or Manhattan but I did see one in a parking garage in Greenwich. I suspect that in Connecticut, people are waiting for the Xi to arrive.
