Ha! So Tlud is still around the Memorial area.

You guys let me know if you spot the "M3 E92" alpine white car....I'm really interested to know who got my old baby. So far as I'm aware, he hasn't shown up on this forum.

So he does exist... I guess we were just the wrong crowd for him Maybe he got berated for incessantly revving his engine at a meet, and took to the hills.

So it sold? I'll keep an eye out and yell obscenities if I spot your old car.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it sold quick. It was up on the dealership website for less than a week.

Forgot to post this......after leaving the meet on Saturday night (3/12) I was on 59s @ Bellaire and a SG E92 flies by me with a SL550 trying to keep up. The Benz gives up as they pass me. I hit the high beam and the ///M taps his brakes. Traffic was light so I hit the joy button and catch him as we approach Momentum BMW.....he had a passenger so I just shot him a duece and got in front. I lost him around hwy 6.........Phil

AW e92 with black wheels and no tint. eldridge and i10 feeder at about 8:30 this morning.

And another fun story... I was at HEB in Cypress after work, and had parked next to (not quite next do... I didn't pull through, he did) a gorgeous black gallardo. Still no sign of the owner as I load my groceries up and get in to my car. Right after I close the door, I see this shape in my window... some dude is running his cart full speed at the side of my car. He pulls up at the last second, gives me a smile and a wave, kinda gallops over to his car and proceeds to unload his groceries in to his lamborghini.

Was a scary/fun experience.

He was definitely just trying to freak me out by acting like he was going to ram my car. Got me.

If the roles were reversed and I pulled a stunt like that on his Gallardo, he probably would have broken off a round in my direction before I got to his car, T.J. Hooker-style, LOL.
Funny story,... sort of. I can see your heart rate go to 140 in those 5 sec. That's how heart attacks happen.

My 2008 E92 sold from Champion Acura. You have a 2010 so it could've been you.

I spotted that bronze E92 again this morning. It pulled up next to me at a light on Memorial and then I was behind it for a while on 610 feeder.

It had exhaust and a DINAN badge, which I didn't notice last time I saw it. My first thought was "that's not the DINAN exhaust" because the tips were polished rather than black. But then I noticed that only the inner tips were really dirty, and the outside ones were clean, which makes me think that it was a DINAN exhaust. So I don't know...
