That would be xxjunmoonxx. He lives right near there.

Where did you take that picture for you signature the location looks very familiar to me. Is it in near Santiago Canyon road?

Yesterday (Wed) about 1 pm, saw a TiAg M3 with CSL trunk, bike rack and some kind of split-5-spoke aftermarket wheels parked.

Was in Gardena, in the parking lot of the strip mall where California Fish Grill is, on Artesia Blvd, just west of Normandie.

Sweet looking car.

Blue M3, lowered, gold bbs, aftermarket exhaust.

Turned left off Hawthorne to go west on Artesia, then turned south into Galleria. Nice looking sled.

Black E46 M3 with DPE R16 or S20 at USC

Saw this car parked outside Fluor tower at USC a couple times last week, then again today on the other side of the 110 from campus. Anyone here? I'm trying to find out what the car scene around here is like.
