That could've been me! I live in Glendora, my wheels are polished though however, so not too sure. Should meet up sometime!

Went to the driving range at Westchester GC near LAX yesterday. Two M3s in the parking lot. One with CSL wheels, one with aftermarket 5 spoke wheels.

Sorry for the crappy description and no pics. Was meeting someone, so was in a bit of a hurry.

Third time seeing this beautiful E46. Black with quad tips in the back looks to be a 325 or 330ci can't entirely tell cuz you were further away with angel eyes of course and no tint in the front but limo in the back.
Saw you on Sunset and PCH turning onto PCH form sunset. I've also seen you on PCH before and in Santa Monica. I think your plates say Sharafi or something like that.
