Because the roads here suck ass, nobody wants their low riders to suck a crack.

so far i've only seen two - a 335i about a month ago. driving on Rt. 1 over in Dedham. Middle aged guy, looked like a dealership car.

Second was a new 328i on the expressway. Again, a middle aged guy driving. Really looked nice in person.

Yes, new england is not the place to lower your ride. I would love to, but it would be a Bad idea!!!

So far I've only seen one 328i Coupe on the road, but no 335i Coupe yet except mine. Maybe they refuse to drive them until the winter is over :P

Hey, let's get this New England thing going. This is absurd already. Let's get our act together so we can get some stuff planned for next summer!!

IIRC, the BMW Car Club of America was started in New England -- the office was in Cambridge until recently. The Boston Chapter is fairly active, though the winter is certainly quieter. The Chapter's annual party will be held next Saturday night (1/20). I will be there -- hope to have the 335i by then!! Check it out: http://boston-bmwcca.org/

I work in Marlboro -- haven't seen a single E92 on the road except for when we had a get-together in early December in Stoneham.
