More F30s on the road now...

Today for the first time ever I noticed an F30 right behind me while driving! There are still so few on the roads here I generally see more Tesla's than F30s...

In LA few on almost every corner, same as F10.
I just get my 330 serviced and get 2013 F30 328 for 4 days. Really liked almost everything, accept start/stop engine and steering had no connection to the road.
Was surprise by 4 cyl pooling with 3 adult in the car - very impressive.
Will buy this car with out doubt.

I've seen only the same 3-4 F30 328i around the Upstate, all of them in the base trim (no Lines). Heck only one of them has xenons, it could be a Employee programme car given the licence plate designation.

Don't see many in SF Bay Area yet. Still many e9x running around. Only saw two since its release, one in the financial district and the other on a test drive by BMW SF. Thinking that many are still locked into their 2011 leases.

Really? I commute from Fremont to Menlo Park every day and see at least 2 other F30's. A lot of base line ones actually. I will be in the city tomorrow so maybe you'll see a sport line mineral gray

True. However, I am starting to see more and more F30's on the road. They are all 328 no line models though. The E90 is still the dominant 3 series in South Florida.

Sf is such wagon country / awd ville. When I lived there it seemed like people weren't as into cars in general then again I lived in the east bay. I'd bet people are also were waiting for the xi. Friend of mine up there I know is ordering an m sport xi wagon diesel whenever he can get it

Haha, that's east bay. There are more bmw, mb, Audi, and Porsches here than most places in the country. AWD in a relatively dry climate is because many drive to Tahoe. SF is more of a micro culture, once you leave and go east in Cali, it's all rural farmland with pickup trucks and big SUVs.

I would put San Diego on par with San Francisco for the amount of BMW's in the city & county. Both fabulous places to live , work & play with our BMW's . See you in the Wine Country.

In Charleston, SC I can go almost a week without seeing one and I live in the "upscale" side of town. See a lot of F10s though. Beautiful car.

I am in the Florida Keys on vacation. No F30 sightings.

Lots of boats and E46 convertibles.

Northern VA must be an anomaly - I see about equal ratio of 335 to 328 F30s but I know BMW sells way more 328s. My sightings are, of course, anecdotal. Still see way more E90s on the road - probably by a 5 or 10 to 1 margin.

I saw 2 F30s today and only one driving from PA to FL earlier this week.

I passed our local BMW dealer today and was surprised to see more E93s and E92s in their primary lot than there were F30s. What's up with that? Maybe they sell mostly convertibles and coupes here?
