The last few days, I've seen a couple modded E46s, but I can't just take one glance and then remember the mods when I get home.

Today about 12:30 pm, parked along Esplande at Torrance Beach/Redondo Beach State Park was a TiAg M3 with Thule roof rack, custom wheels with red BBS center caps (probably real BBS wheels, but I went by too quick to see), and (I think) an MFest sticker in the window.

Today about 3:00 pm, at the intersection of Artesia Blvd and Aviation, there was a red M3 vert heading west, had a custom hood with slots, top was down, dude driving had an earbud in his left ear. There was also an E46 sedan, dark blue, waiting to turn left onto westbound Artesia, looked dropped and had custom BBM LM-ish wheels.

Tonight in the parking lot of the 24 Hr Fitness at Redondo Beach Blvd and Hawthorne Blvd.

Sounds like this dude.
