I saw dr. Allen today on Strathmore in Westwood, SO clean.

Apparently he's a member! http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2124020

I also keep seeing an interlagos blue M3 in the handycap parking on UCLA campus next to Haines.

And I keep seeing a tiag vert m3 "CptnsM3" in the same area.

Spotted:

What: Blue E46 M3 (probably interlagos) with black wheels/polish non-stepped lips.

Where: In an industrial area on the corner of Warner Ave. & Gothard in Huntington Beach adjacent to Ocean view high school.

When: 4:00pm, today (2/23/08)


I was making a left onto gothard when I see a guy standing next to a blue m3 being handcuffed and frisked by police! The guy could have been the owner or passenger of the M3, but it appeared he was the owner/driver.

There were about 3-4 cop cars in that plaza too.

Could be....was it closer to the 55 freeway?

EDIT: If it was limo tinted on black wheels, it was most likely me


I've been seeing a lot of sick E46's lately

Just saw a SICK black E46 M3 with yellow fogs and very wide fender flares in Downtown Fullerton in looking for parking in front of SPhagetti Factory last night.

Looked really good.

I was leaving in my Sienna Red Coupe, Mtech bodykit & BBS RK's.
