SG 330i, at George Mason University?

I just started at George mason last week and I saw two or three e90's driving around. (I don't drive mine since I live 1 hour and 30 mins away) This one was parked in the very front of the lot, i was wondering if it was anyone in here! I firgure they might be since it had been de-badged! Anyone?

Its all apart of my second masters. This will get me exactly where I want to be... eventually I would like to go for my PhD.


Maybe when I get the PhD I can finally afford that M5 I have my eye on

Believe it or not, I actually like the M5 over the M6... But if it were a 550 vs 650, Id take the 6er...

the Attorney I bought my M3 from, seems like in shock with his Ferrari mpg... yup I agree some folks can certainly afford it.

If I drive car like that I'll make sure I have a Exxon tanker behind me, siphoning gas straight to my engine, so I dont have to stop to gasup each time I accelerate.

w/c reminds me of a contestant in Amazing Race show, the whole family won a free gas for life from BP after winning a stopover. imagine!
a Toyota Yaris wouldnt be in their buy plans anytime soon

Hi Yuly...

Well the move from 330i to 335i signals an engine change from the 3.0l NA N52 I-6 to the new 3.0l twin-turbo N54 I-6 engine. the '35' in 335 implies the engine has the performance of a 3.5l courtesy FI eventhough it remains a 3.0l. Well that still doesn't explain why a 325i is 3.0l and why the new '07 328i is still the same 3.0l. I think that's just pure marketing crap

We would like for you to sign up at our DC metro registry (details in my sig panel), it will help in our communications (via PM). Wrt meet, don't worry, you won't miss it. We will bolldly promote in the days to come followed by PM blitz. See you soon

I would really like to meet the owner of the jet black (or black sapphire) 330d Euro E91 running on 158s with Virginia Vanity tags "Needlnze" or something like that. Curious to know how that car was registered here (it didn't have diplomatic tags or anything).

Has anyone seen this car (last spotted 495/US1) 2 weeks ago. Would like to have him at our meet.
