My Ride: 02 ///M3 Tri-Ped
Foothill Blvd in Sunland/Tujunga:
an E90 with at least two rolls of chrome door edging from auto zone on every lip of the car...the Doors, Hood, and Trunk completely framed in "faux chrome"
It's Black or dark Blue if I remember correctly, the chrome was pretty distracting.
I wish I had snapped a photo...you would definitely know if you have seen it.




Spot me in: Hollywood, West Hills, and Little Tujunga Canyon "AngelesCrest"
