How many times have you been greeted

because of the 135i. I have counted 5 times so far. Twice, I was asked how much it costs at the light and what model it is. Twice caught M3 owners playing cat and mouse. And once commented by a lady at a parking lot.

A handful, the gategaurd today said "I want your job." I said, "well the Army is always hiring."

Like Robert, half a dozen, or so...at work the car has drawn some not-inconsiderable attention, as it turns out, BMW's are quite popular with the 'helicopter' crowd. There has been some anticipation incurred as the under-CEO has an 04' E46 M3, which, he demanded I drive the day he discovered I had ordered a 135. Fine, if you insist.:roundel: Of the 300 folk stationed at home base, probably 6 have BMW's though there is sufficient quantity of car enthusiasts to have completely surprised me with some unanticipated interest-of and recognition-of a 'different' BMW.

The 135i is being watched. Who knew?:wink:
