about 2 or 3 weeks ago i saw a black e46 m3 convertible on 95 south, lowered i believe, had a vorsteiner vented hood as well. girlfriend or sister was in the passenger seat. had new york plates, nice vert.

today, saw a silver gray e46 m3 in the towson dulaney valley plaza. parked in front of pasta mista. stock 19s, different exhaust, and cf front lip. clean m.

today in the same dulaney towson plaza also saw a black 328i/335i with VMR V710's.

on dulaney valley road driving towards towson mall/pf changs intersection saw black m3 vert, that could have well been the same one i described above that i saw a few weeks ago. not positive tho, sun was bright so couldnt tell. looked lowered, tinted windows, angel eyes for sure and top was down. you had a friend in the passenger seat. love m3 verts

I actually saw a black vert on 695 near Park Heights Ave, it was a newer E46 (I believe they call those facelifts?) with angel eyes and black wheels with a chrome lip...might have been the same as one of those you listed above.

My Ride: M3
I drive Georgetown Pike toward DC every evening around 5pm to get to work and regularly see two e46 convertibles going the opposite direction, one black M3 (like mine) and a white one.
Today coming in I saw FIVE e46 verts coming at me - 2 black, 2 white, and 1 blue.

I always try to wave when I see another BMW convertible , but today I was in my X5. I did the batwing repair on my vert this afternoon and am letting the glue dry. Perfect top-down weather too.

Anyway, if you see me, give a wave!

John

I spotted a Phoenix Yellow M3 on PSS9's, paint matched reflectors, shadowline trim and LED Angel Eyes. The guy drove by my house 3 or 4 times and each time he went past he slowed to a crawl. Finally Jay flagged him down. Apparently he had just purchased it and the previous owner had removed the blackout kidneys and gills and refused to sell the dished wheels. The interior was f'ing immaculate! I'm wondering who the previous owner was, they said he was Asian, possibly Phillipino. Anyway, the new owner hardly speaks any English (fortunately I speak Spanish). I'm seriously hoping he keeps it tasteful but he mentioned getting a wing, front aero and wants Phoenix yellow wheels with with red lips I tried to give him other more tasteful ideas.

I saw a really nice red BMW today. I couldn't tell if it was a preface sedan or coupe, since i caught it out of the corner of my eye and was trying to pay attention to the road, but it looked like it had LED tails and an M3 rep front bumper.

it was parked on the Uni. of Maryland campus in one of the lots near the comcast center. If it's yours, nice car

I saw a beautiful LSB convertible M3 yesterday on GW Parkway going north around 6pm. He got off at Spout Run, but I kept going on GW.

Beautiful.
