I've seen like 5-6 350Z's since Sunday over on the Westside. I even saw two on the same street within 10 minutes. Looks like Nissan is doing a good job of distributing their cars. You figure I would see a lot of Mini's, but I haven't, since it's been out since March. Why can't BMW produce thier cars at a faster rate? Or is that their way of price gouging?

I've seen the same thing. They're spreading like roaches.

I am starting to see quite a few Mini's one the road in the South Bay area. At least I'm seeing more Mini's right now than Z's.

Roaches... Ha ha!
You probably see the same ones (Z's) that I see. I see them all by the Westside Pavillion.

I saw my first one the other day on the way to work. I *SWEAR* I thought it was a Lexus.. what is that SC430 or whatever? The little coupe.

It wasn't till I pulled behind it that I realized.. and was impressed only that I had seen one but not with what I'd seen.

I'm very happy being one of only 6400 - 2001 BMW 330Ci's sold in 2001 in America...have only seen one other on my daily commute.

The other 6399 of them must've been sold in the D.C. area, in that case. :p

The numbers of 4-doors 3'er sales compared to the 2 door was astounding, if memory serves me, I believe it was something like 25,000 330i's compared to 6400+ 330Ci's for 2001. Wish we had someone like they do over on the Roadfly to post those stats again...

It seems that whenever I turn the TV on every commercial is a Nissan commercial trying to get back to their "Car". Right now Nissan is all about getting the word out that they have a new sports car. Thank god they have one but the exposure is heavy.
With the amount of billboards up in chicago you'd think Mayor Daley endorsed the 350Z.
