Official Texas M3 Spotted Thread

I know it's rare to see an M3 at times, but I thought it would be kinda' exciting to bring up a thread like this.

I haven't spotted any M3's today but I'm sure we'll see plenty as we give details of the M3's we spot!

Well unfortunately they're all over Houston, so it won't be hard to play this game. I see about four a day on average.

You must do a lot more driving than I do or have a lot more M3's in your area because I only see one a week on average. It's only a matter of time until they become as common as the E46 M3 though.

That's perfectly cool!

I've already sent a couple of messages to the head guys so that this thread may become a 'STICKY'. -edit-THANK YOU MODS!

I saw a white e92/93? m3 take a left on Spring Creek, coming from Preston....in Plano of course..hehe

I was at the signal in my m3 with my wife and kid. I rolled my window down just to give him a thumbs up, but he ignored me (or missed me?). I have a good feeling he saw my m3, but he was too busy trying to show off at the turn maybe.....

Spotted a space gray e92 m3 w/18's going east on Plano pkwy from Preston. I was in my family SUV and we took a right on Coit to fill up gas at the Sam's Club over there. I was wanting to give you a thumbs up, but you and your son (I believe) were looking the other direction. All I noticed was that you were Asian (Korean or Japanese).

Nice M3!

I spotted myself. Went to the dealership this A.M. and two m5's rolled in... I must say those things are pretty nice. One was black with black grills and m6 rims. I still like my 3 better

Every week night when I run at Memorial Park I see the same Silver e90M and AW e93M, along with usually one more I haven't seen driving past the park. Its kind of crazy, I never thought I'd see so many so often. Maybe its time for me to go ahead and get a 7.1 GT3.

I only see about one e9x body style M3 in Houston about once per week myself. I still think it's pretty rare in Houston.

Winner Winner! That was me. The wheels are actually HRE P40s. I was attempting to get a new collar for my dog but they were all sold out

How did you like the rear RD Bumper? I can't decide if I like it or not...
