My Ride: 04 330Ci ZHP
Was rolling up 110N this morning from 105 into downtown, around 8 or so. Rolled next to a black pre-face Dinan 3 coupe with black rims with polished lips. Tint was WAY too dark for me to see who was driving.

Very clean car, though.

Was cruising through heavy traffic in nor-cal on 680 south - saw a grey M3 around Modesto area.... Was Dec. 29th. M3 looked lowered, and I think it had blacked out rims. Fairly dark tint, caught up with you right before you turned off. Anybody???
