My Ride: SCed E46 & E60 M5
Saw a Ci w/ wide body quad exhaust on San Vicente in santa monica about a week or so ago, looked really nice. I was in my bimmer and tried to wave but I was to busy cutting everyone off at the front of the line of traffic like a boss.

I saw a face-lifted 325ci by my office in Agoura Hills entering the 101 Southbound around 2:40pm earlier today. Clean Dinan Stage 3, Chestnut Brown I believe. Clean ride and nice exhaust! Shot a nod and wave, see you around buddy!

Spotted last night, Saturday 11/17/2012 at the far end of the Vons parking lot on Topanga Blvd at Roscoe Blvd @ 8pm. Clean dark grey sedan dropped on some nice rims (don't know the exact car color or rim type lol) and LED tails. Saw you loading up your ride w/ groceries. I was picking up a Red Box Blu-Ray and some munchies hehehe. License plate said "TRANC3". Clean ride and good call parking at the end of the lot! I did the same!
