I've seen people take pictures at a lot of random / stupid sh!t. Just saying... in a day when your phone is your camera... I don't see the big deal of people taking pictures of a car in a parking lot or on the road.

I've had people take pics of my car.. but hell I've taken pics of random "un-cool" cars like a Fiat X19 from the 80s because we have an old lemons car that is the same model - and then I'll send it to my budies.

Or I've had my girlfriend take a picture of a BMW and send it to me or my mom if someone had a penn state decal on their car (I went there for my undergrad).

I wouldn't read into the picture taking too much personally. I certainly wouldn't be paranoid about it.

I've seen people snap shots of my car, actually flattering. I see my car so often that it looks normal, glad others take an interest. Sometimes give bystanders a little throttle blip haha. I take pics of other cars with my phone on a daily basis just for fun.

I had to pick up my father at the hospital he was being discharged after surgery. So I parked at the main entrance and when I came out, the front desk lady asked what kind of car I was driving cause she says everyone was eyeing my car even doing a full walkaround. I even saw 2 nurses do a full walk around. There are some e92 driving around cause I see them all the time, and plus my car is fully stock exterior, nothing fancy. Its definately a good feeling.

I have seen random people take pictures of my car. Mostly cuz of my vanity plates. You'd have to be a Filipino to get it. Several times I've seen people snapping a pic while in traffic and several more while stopped at a gas station. It is flattering I must admit. But it hasn't helped me pull more girls unfortunately!

I literally had a guy chase me down in a parking lot while I was driving away. I looked up in my rear view mirror to see this guy running after me. I stopped because I thought I dropped something outside my car or something... No, he just wanted to know what brand my amazingly good looking wheels were.

Well, what kind of tool leaves his hood open in a parking lot?

I don't notice anyone snapping pics of my car, but maybe they do while I am inside.

However, I snapped a pic of some douche in a Merc E350 yesterday with plates that said "OK 2HATE." Got a good laugh out of it... Guess I'm hatin'

I've seen many people, mostly young girls and middle aged pinays take pictures of my ride as I'm walking out of where ever it is that I am. I get more compliments on the plates than I do my car. Haha!

I haven't noticed pics, but every time I have someone riding shotgun they mention how many people they catch staring at my car and quickly looking away. I was parked at wal-mart one time and I guess thy guys didn't realize I was still in the car when they did a full walk around for a minute lol. I live in an area where F-cars, P-cars etc are fairly common and my car is fairly stock?

I see people do it to my E30 a lot more often ever since I put the coilovers and wheels on even though it's still a piece of shit otherwise as far as looks go. I even saw a guy I'm following on Instagram post a picture of it and he didn't even know it was my car lol but it does get kinda weird when they keep taking pics when you get in your car to leave...

I don't recall seeing strangers taking pictures of my car but I have gotten compliments at the gas station, starbucks "nice wheels", "sounds great", and "is that an M3?".

Yup, all the time.

A couple months ago a coworker of mine was in our parking lot on a conference call prior to coming into the office and he said he saw a guy walking through the parking lot stop, look at my car, walked around it three times and left. Five minutes later he returned with a camera and took a bunch of pics.

My pharmacy tech said his buddy is really into cars and the VW scene. He then proceeded to show him pics of a hot BMW that he saw in West Chester (PA). They were pics of my car

My S2000 used to get some serious dude love when I had it, pics and all that. My 335, not so much since it still looks pretty much stock. Often times I'm the guy snapping pics of other cars because there are so many exotics around where I live.

Rough translation:

PINOY KC= because I'm Filipino

AYNAHKO= oh sh*t!

KORIPOT= cheap

Like I mentioned before, I've only seen Filipinos take pics of my plates instead of my car but still, the attention is cool.
