Ess windshield header? If you have the wheels in your avatar then it was probably you. Trust me, I said hello in my own special way involving red flashing lights, I think you'd remember me!

Nope, wasn't me then. I've only been pulled over once and that was on New Years Eve this year at about 11:30PM for 'weaving in my lane'.. I was sober as a rock but just got my new headunit installed and was triyng to figure out how to dim the damn screen. The cop spent more time asking me if I rolled my fenders to fit the wheels than he did actually trying to determine if I was drunk. I wasn't, which was probably obvious. Then again maybe I wasn't even weaving and he just wanted to ask me about my wheels/fenders.

Edit: I hope there isn't another guy rolling around the bay area with a LSB with LSB matched rims.. I thought only I was stupid enough to do something that distastefull. Also, I used to live in SLO but have since moved to the bay. My car hasn't been back to SLO yet. But when I did live in SLO 4-5 years ago I drove a E36 M3 Dakkar Yellow Convertible.

There was a guy in Fresno last summer in a LSB M3 with black wheels with a LSB lip. Thought it might have been you......

There hasn't been a BMW meet in the area for awhile, but I've gone to as many as I can. Not doing Mfest, though.

Just came across a dude with a LSB w/Yellow rims. Haha how random.

I don't think the yellow/blue is all that bad.. looks like a toy car.. but he chose the wrong rims.. OEM's in yellow.. not so much.
