If I put up every E9* I spotted on here, it would be a very very dull and laborious task - there are 1000s around!

If just 335d and 335i (plus M3s) then it would be manageable.

Perhaps my example was a little bit overly elaborate...

You don't need to put up all of them or any.

You might put up a rare colour, or some wheels you liked, or in your case, a car which was suitably understated to the point where it took your notice.

this is true, I travel on the m5 and m4 almost every day and see hundreds but i guess we could 'spot' e9*s that have something different about them which makes them worth spotting ? maybe limit it to interesting ones with an accompanying pic, there wouldn't be too many which would keep the thread manageable

I haven't seen you yet, have I? I'm the dick going too quick in lane three and then slows when I go past an M Sport to get a reaction from the driver. I often get one, a confused 'what the fuck are you looking at!!" kind of look. I then press on

Note to self; Must stop wearing the gimp mask when driving

Probably both


On the way to work this morning i was looking at various BMW drivers trying to work out if they were the sort of person that would come on a forum and i decided it perhaps wouldn't be that easy.
