They're around, but there aren't too many on the street yet. There are tons and tons and tons of E46s though, so with time the E90 should be equally common.

I have not seen one on the streets around here. In fact, I haven't seen many on the streets at all.

There are about 3 here in a city of about 20,000. So I would say I will be very recognizable. Sweet.

Very uncommon here (Shreveport, Louisiana) I have seen 3 come thru the dealer (Titansilber and Japanrot 330i and Mysticblau 325i) and one other around town (Alpinweiß 325i). Tons and I mean Tons of E60 5ers here (mostly 530i) though, and tons of E46 3ers. The dealer here really pushed me to buy a 545i - I ended up going to Houston to get my car, and I 'm glad I did.

I've seen one so far. A 325i in SG. That's the only one. And he's been circling around my block every once in a while for a couple of weeks now, maybe trying to sneak a peek at mine???

Well, too bad. It's in the garage!

agreed 100%; here in jersey i have only seen a couple e90s on the street so far since not many people have bought them out yet.

HOWEVER...its nearly impossible for me to see less than 10 e46s on the road in any given day of the week. If you follow that trend, the e90 should be pretty damn commonplace a year or 2 from now.

Pretty common around my neighborhood and the Bay area in general.

There are about 3 or 4 within a few blocks of me.

I don't care though. I just feel better when I have certain features my neighbors may be lacking.

Funny you mention this because I have probably saw more continental GTs in my area than E90's to date. In my own area I mean, but if I drive in other areas they seem to be more common. Go figure I guess..... LOL

I agree, 5 of my friends just recently purchased them, plus I see like 10 everyday going to work and just driving around sometimes, I guess they are quite popular.

Still rare enough to be noticeable in BMW saturated southern CT (I think I still see more E60s than E90s). But in a year they'll be everywhere.

In related news, a second E90 appeared in my company's 250-car parking lot last week. My "exclusivity" lasted less than a month.

I've seen a couple of 330i's and around 15 325i's in an area that has a population of at least a million people.

I have seen only a few on the road here in Delaware. It's still a rare sighting, and I still get lots of stares (not sure if it's for the car, or because of the ballerina costume I'm wearing... oh well). The wagon will be VERY rare though - I don't expect to see many of those.
