Spotted a Black 3 series coupe with black hamman rims (i think), smoked corners, dark tint, and an e46fanatics.com sticker on the UCSB campus. Looked really clean, and I go to UCSB too, so it would be nice to meet up with someone with similar interests. Also, the driver had long hair.

Saw an tiag m3 coming out of the Chevron car wash at Artesia and Western in Gardena about 10:30 am today. Custom rims, grey centers, maybe iForged, looked like 19", lowered, slightly tinted windows.

Headed east on Artesia Blvd and (I think) onto 91 East.
