Saw an E92 Jerez Black 328I on the 15 north about 45 minutes ago. You were in the fast lane. Was all stock.

Not sure. Looked identical to my Jerez blue and had the older taillights. Who knows.

JzB is an M-exclusive color for the E9X cars.

Do 328i owners really post sighting threads? Those cars are a dime a dozen in California...

Not really as I have seen 2 in the 10 days I have been here. Probably saw 1 in Oregon in 4 years. Fact. The 328 was the exact color. So maybe it was custom colored? Who knows. Not a big deal just stating what I saw.

Bunch today. 6 M3's, 3 M5's, and an M6. This of course was the day I chose to drive the Mini not the M3 lol.

In the morning was a silver e92 M3 I see driving on pch a lot. Not sure if it's ZCP or not...

Then a white M5 in riviera village. Had black pipes, looked good.

Then I THINK I passed Dark's e90 on pch around the same area. Can't remember where it was but I thought it was him.

Then around 5:45pm I passed two e90s. One was jet black, the other looked like interlagos or a unique color. There was also an M5 in this series all within half a mile. Can't remember the color. This was by Botanical Gardens on Crenshaw while I was headed towards PV and they were going into Torrance. There was a third M5 somewhere today but I can't remember.

Then a jet black e92 around midnight at the Taco Truck on Santa Monica blvd. was with Mfest for the sighting. His car was brand new with paper plates. ZCP if I remember correctly. Congrats to you! ...also a white e93 drove past us headed north.

Before that there Was a black M6 that was tearing up Santa Monica blvd a bit

Not yesterday. I was in my wife's car when I saw you. But I do take that route home regularly so you may have seen the car going eastbound.

Hit me up if I can help you with the coding.
