E46 Touring Spotted and general chitchat/photo thread

I didn't see one of these already so I'm going to start one. Hopefully it takes off!

Here's one I saw recently.



Closer look (huge image, so not going to post inline):

I keep seeing one around Columbia, where I work, but I'm always driving so I never get a pic. Pretty sure it's Orient Blue, tinted windows, wheels change around, iirc they are gold or bronze right now. Looks to be kept clean.

Mine was found by its younger e91 sibling last night. E91 is on M sport 19" wheels and H&R springs. Sadly it is short a pedal.

Couple of interesting encounters yesterday. First was this cool Clubman S:







Next up this E91 sitting in a dealer lot. I had to pull up and get a couple flicks:





I like both of those other cars, but I love my Touring.

I jsut saw a pretty white touring headed north on the East side of Oahu. It had clears, that's all I can say for sure, and I think a female driver. Was using my phone as navigation so didn't get a picture.

Philly isn't far off. Lol! My first one had 1 17" wheel and 3 16" wheels on it when I bought it. (The 4th 16" was in the spare well having issues holding air.)

I put new wheels on my car and now I need spacers for that 'just right' look:



PM me if you're interested in my old wheels and tires

Edit: pickup only! Sorry.

I know it's not quite apples to apples, but I feel like this car is a spiritual descendant of the E46 Touring.

Was in my Steel Blue 325i in Raleigh today and spotted a darker blue (not sure the proper name of the paint color) 325xi facelift wagon with VA plates on I40. Looked to be in good shape. I think a non-sport based on the wheels. Kinda cool to see another on the road!
