How many E90's in your area?

Hey all-
I was wondering how many E90's you see driving around your neck of the woods? I live in San diego, and you would think living in a big city, id see a ton- but nope, only seen 2 in the last month..
Im feeling very special knowing that my car is unique right now
But.. then again, give or take a few months and im sure ill see A LOT more..

I've now seen three on the road. One SG, one arctic, and one black. However, I just talked to my dealership yesterday, and they said they've released 40 already and have 60 coming in July that are already presold. By end of August, you'll be seeing a lot of these. For current owners, enjoy your exclusivity while you can!

Starting to see lots of E90s on a daily basis recently. We have 6 large BMW dealerships in Houston (one being the second largest nationwide), so I'm not surprised.

I have seen about 5 E90's over the past month or so (2 of them are in my building). Most of them were 325's, but there was one 330i with sport package.

However, it was a Monaco Blue 325i that stands out most in my mind. It had the base 16 inch wheels and halogen headlights. I hate to say it, but it looked horrible . This car really needs the angel eyes and larger wheels.

Yeah, angel eyes is the one single thing that i really regret not getting .. It was on my list of options, but when the dealer went through the list of the cars coming in, no available car had angel eyes with my options. It was going to basically take me a lot longer , or id have to start from scratch . Boo... Well i live & learn...

Here in Panama, ive seen 2 plain vanilla white 320's and 1 325 with 330 sport package rims and fully loaded. But im sure i will see more. Honestly the 320's with no angel, no trim and small rims doesnt look that great... i am very lucky that my 330 sport package will look amazing... PS--> well equipped 330 in Panama is $58,000 and $61,000 with the good rims (162s)

In the Seattle area, I've seen 4 total. 1 325i, 3 330i's... I'm surprised by this ratio, because I thought the ratio was supposed to be 10:1.

Question: When you see an E90 on the road... do you wonder if it is someone who frequents this forum?

I also drive a 325i and I live in Fullerton/Irvine area and I actually see some new 2006 BMWs. Not a lot, but I think more people are slowing buying 'em. I mean it's a nice car. I LOVE MY CAR.
