I live in Leander and rarely seen a E9x M3 around here. There are a lot of E46 here. How many E9x M3 are there in Austin?

I'm in Austin, near the Arboretum, and I see maybe one E9X a week on my daily bicycle commute to work... and I'm always looking ;-)

Mine is a 2008 SSII E90, and it's box-stock (the way I like it) with the 19" 10-spoke wheels. She's not seen out in public all that often, but she's not a garage-queen either. Just a weekend warrior and occasional grocery-getter.

I think I have seen your car around. Where you at Kerby Lane on Anderson Lane around lunch time on Monday? Saw an M3 just likes yours parked there.

Mine is 2009 SG M3 with some cosmetic mods. She is a garage queen. Does less than 1K miles a month.

Can't believe someone got blocks with them and made off with your wheels. Any oil drippings or tire marks on the driveway or road? Looks way too professional. They must have jacked both sides of the car get the wheel out without triggering the alarm.

Any luck with insurance company?

Hopefully Google map took a snapshot during the time they were taking the wheels off.

That may have been me! It was Monday around 2:00 (Memorial Day) and we were parked by the Kerbey Lane on South Lamar, but we were actually eating at Torchy's (if that's the location you're thinking of... between Ben White and Oltorf).

And yeah, mine gets about 500 miles on her a month. Have had "The Wolf" for 4 months with 2K added miles to her since purchase (up from 22.5K to 24.5K)

My bad, actually it was Tuesday at the Anderson Mill Kerbey Lane parking lot around 12:30 I spotted a '08 E90 M3 just like yours. I think you have a stunt double

Wait, you have a '08 E90 with only 24K Miles??? That is sweet! My 09 E90 has 42k.

Yeah that wasn't me...

And yeah - that car was a score with 22K miles. Ran the idea by The War Dept. for approval, then bought it on the spot from Jay at Austin BMW.

Nah... That wasn't me. Much like a cell phone plan, the M3 is only free nights and weekends. It's cool that there's a doppleganger nearby. I'll definitely post if I see it!

Sounds you need to switch cell phone plans. Get the unlimited everything anytime plan!

Yea the appraiser is coming today - but man i hate insurance companies. Apparently you need a clause in your policy for full OEM replacements (which i don't have). They are probably going to try to push for refurbs or reconditioned wheels if there is such a thing for this car - but i'm going to fight that as much as I can.

Spotted a black E92 at the HEB parking lot on Lakeline in Cedar Park. She seemed hot. Both the car and the driver!
