I knew my config was rare... but,

5 years, 10 months, three weeks and goodness knows how many air miles and I finally saw my twin!

Spotted in Helsinki, Finland:

Still not the same wheels though? Close, but no cigar.

Fine find in Finland friend.

Mrs. Kat (on honeymoon):

I understand that the owner is a female and she is a chemist by trade.

On a smaller scale, I have owned my '08 E93 vert almost three years. It is a two year color, Atlantic Blue. I have only seen one other in my travails in the Austin/San Antonio region.

Enjoy Finland. Try their limburger cheese.

Mike

Wow, fabulous! Was it also a 328i, or did it have a different engine? Or did it not have a model designation on the trunk?

I noticed there is another BMW behind it; perhaps a Z3?

My best guess is that it was a 330i based on:
1) single sided tail pipe configuration
2) the wheel style
3) the fact that the 328i was more of a North American market variant.

Still the closest thing I've ever seen to a twin.
