Spotted a AW Vert M3 in the Target parking lot on Friday night in Irvine/Tustin. Had a black M3 badge on the trunk and black side vents. Looked a bit lowered on OEM 19's.

Also spotted a black Vert M3 on Bonita Ave in San Dimas last week. Black grills, angel eyes, and I think it had black wheels too, had some sort of vinyl across where the license plate would be on the bumper. Passed each other while giving the stare

CLEAN cosmos (I believe) E36 M3 slammed on some Work Equips driving behind me on Honolulu Ave in Montrose around 12:30 today. We both pulled into the Starbucks on Verdugo and chatted for a bit. Nice meeting you bro! If I remember, his name is Emerald.
