BMW sightings in one day

Here is a list of BMWs I saw today, without purposely looking for them or visiting a dealership...

3 Series (duh..lots of those, didn't see tourings or cabriolets though..)
5 Series (saw 2 of them... both sedans)
6 Series (saw 2 of them..one could have been a cabriolet..not sure..)
7 Series (saw 1)
X3 (1)
X5 (2)
M3 (saw a coupe)
M5 (1)

So I guess I am missing Z4 and M6.....to be honest, I haven't seen a M6 in real life..ever!

Anyone think they can beat this?

Sit in downtown La Jolla for 10 minutes and you will have all that plus your M6 and a few lambos and ferraris.

With the exception of the M5, I see more than that just exiting the garage of my building. Its a 10 story gargage and I usually pass through about 3 floors frommy usual parking spot to the exit.

In that short drive I see:
-numerous 3 series (most of the E46's are being replaced with E90's)
-at least six 5 series
-four 7 series
-three 6 series
-two or three M3's.
-there is at least one M5, but it's the previous body (no E60 M5, yet).
-I've lost count of the X3's and X5's

There are plenty of BMW's and MB's, but the nicest are the Porsche GT3, Ferrari 575, and Ferrari 456 (I think the Ferrari's are both owned by the same person). I doubt this will compare to the types of cars seen in Southern CA or FL, but NJ has its share of nice cars, too.

I honestly see about 50 BMWs on my 2 mile commute daily.
So I see just about every type of BMW imaginable.
I'd say I see about 3-5 M3s in that 2 mile trip.
I've seen two new M5s in town within the last month and I've seen at least one older M5 in the last month as well. I've seen a Z8, but not recently. I don't think I've seen a M6 but my friend has a 635Csi which I think it pretty cool. They're nice cars.
