Just not spotted by an E46Fanatics user then, may be drivers with an E46 just not a member here.

Spotted an '05 330Ci ZHP at my work, must be one of the employees. All stock.
If the owner's reading this: I'm the guy with the silver grey one across from you just about every other day

Send a message via AIM to JayKayo
Saw a (stock?) black E46 M3 in Rowland Heights; my cousin's neighbor has a pre-facelift 323Ci, color looks light bluish-green; stock silver vert M3.

Used to see a laguna seca blue E46 M around the area, looked unique but ugly to me though (no offense)

Before I got this ZHP, I looked nonstop for weeks for a replacement M3 but to no avail. There just wasn't an E46 M3 out there that was either blue (any except laguna seca), silver grey, steel grey, or titanium silver that was not a vert and was 6-speed with low-ish miles.

So now here I am with the next best thing. Silver grey 330Ci ZHP

Will start taking pics of E46s I see around the area.

Just saw a pre-facelift silver 325Ci with an M-Tech bumper going down Colima in Rowland Heights. It was a chick behind the wheel

I always see a Topaz 330i sedan around my neighborhood. Mtech 1 front, Mtech 2 rear, lowered on some silver 19's with a polished lip sitting flush. Smoked corners/tails. Looks great

So I saw a few e46s these past couple days.. Saw a silver touring.. Looked lowered I'm not sure tho.. Stock rims I think.. But had red interior all inside.. Looked really good cause it didn't have tinted windows so u could see.. Saw it on the 55 west right before u get on the 405 in irvine area..

Also saw a coupe yesterday at a gas station in irvine on Jeffrey.. I think it had the m3 front bumper.. Looked like a dark gray.. And had some white rims.. Mesh type I believe.. Wasn't digging the color combo sorry :/.. Plus it had an m3 badge on the back and it wasn't an m3.. So that just made me laugh sorry..
