My Ride: SCed E46 & E60 M5
E46 M3 with gold rims, csl cf trunk not painted at 24/7 fitness on saluson and la cienega two days ago also with the worst sounding exhaust I've ever heard in an E46 M3 EVER. I heard you coming from a mile away and thought it was a honda civic that was broken until I saw it was you. Don't worry it's not your fault all E46 M3s sound horrid.

Metallic/Dark Blue M3 with a "72" taped on the side driving on the 23 towards the 101 S, took the 101 South and exited on Hampshire in Westlake Village around 8:00 AM on Monday.
Vehicle sounded sexy, with my windows up.

My Ride: 323 2000 Ci
Phoenix Yellow metallic 2000 E46 M3, eAs license frame, lowered suspension on stock wheels, aftermarket rear bumper. I was in a silver E46 2000 323Ci coupe, sporting super slammed suspension and candy-white style 5 rims and Thule roof rack with spoiler.

Spotted on 57 freeway in Pomona going south pass Arrow Hwy exit around 3:15 ish today (10/4.13 Friday). Gave each other the thumbs up. Driver was rocking a buzz cut. We car trained for a few miles onto the 57 south past 60 freeway towards Orange County. Nice and clean, aggressive stock look!

soooooooo.... driving down jamboree just now i spotted a bunch of modded bmw's. now im not gonna comment on the speeding and all that cuz it was between red lights, but to the guy who ran an INCREDIBLY LATE red light, not sure what excuse you're gonna come up with but do yourself and everyone on the road a favor and grow up.

then i had a f30 335i come up aggressively on me on newport blvd, and proceeded to slow down next to me then take off multiple times. nice car dude, it was a pleasure getting smoked by you.

I believe I know of this meet - if you would like I can raise your concern to the organizer about these issues.

How many vehicles was there?

I would say about 12 cars total? nice lookin rides don't get me wrong, but that kinda reckless behavior doesn't belong on public roads.

This was was about 60 vehicles I believe. If it were him I don't think it would've mattered if I told him anything. The meet was "All cars welcomed" and apparently one of the meet goers was driving a 240sx or something non-euro and he was ridiculed, organizer quickly removed his postings instead of addressing them. Not sure how I feel about that.
