I've only seen two JB E9x M3s in Tampa, mine being the E92, and someone else having a E90. I've seen an AW and then a custom Phoenix yellow, but these were both at my shop, one is the owners, another's is a friend of his. Also have seen one IB at my gym. I know another AW exists nearby as well, but that's it that I've seen: 6 total including mine, 4 coupes, 1 vert, 1 sedan. I'm sure I'm wrong and there are more... I hear they are handing out M3s in Miami though

Same here. I see MAYBE 2 a week.

Someone locally to me just bought a 2011 IB Sedan. So much for thinking IB sedan would be rare around here.

I have seen 2 E9Xs in the last year around my parts: 1 AW E90, 1 AW E93. I'm sure there are more, but I just don't see them. I'm pretty damn sure I'll be one of only(if not the only) a few LMB E9x. I would actually be willing to be that I'm the only one within a 25 mile radius of my house.

E46s I do see more often. Always a treat to see one!

I haven't seen too many E9X M3s around and if any then they've been typically Coupes...

I see lots of E46 M3's around me, but E9x are a bit more rare. It's bizarre, given all the money in the area and the fact that I see exotics pretty regularly, even the occasional Carrera GT or Enzo. But not a whole lot of e9x M3's.

That said, nothing compares to car-obsessed southern California.

So have I. Also had the same experience with my 911 a while back in Beverly Hills.

In my 24-unit building there will be three e93 M3s when mine arrives. (Currently there are two new JBs). At least I didn't get JB.

Here in Vegas I have seen 6 e92's, and 2 e90's in, 5 months , 4 of which had California plates. Always a treat to see them in motion. Makes me appreciate mine everytime I see one Rollin.
