X6 M, M3, and M5 Mob

I'm just driving on 59 North at the New Castle/Weslayan exit around 5:30 pm, minding my own business, when a black X6 M passes me on the left, and then moments later, a black M5 passes me on the right. Wow, talk about a strange coincidence to have three different M models all driving in adjacent lanes.

The X6 M is actually pretty sweet looking and great inside.

you're part of an exclusive club. The M drivers club it's a good feeling to know that you're part of something so exclusive; you're not going to get that feeling w/t any other car manufacture... That's the diff' w/t the ISF and C63

That is pretty sweet. Maybe Im driving in the wrong parts of town because I only see about one M a week, let alone a double dose at once!

I was in the parking lot to Derrick Tavern last week (off Eldridge near Memorial), and found 2 M5s, an E92 Melbourne M3, and an M6. If you like cars, Houston isn't a bad place seems half the city is driving something nice.

Nice spot!

Yeah, too bad this was during rush hour. Otherwise it would be fun how the little M would do against its big brothers.

Nice spot!
I hope the freeway conditions have changed since I lived in Houston in '78-'79. The freeways were full of holes, and the sides of them were full of debris. I had a 911SC at the time and was always afraid I would wreck a wheel or get debris damage.

Nice cars, tho.

My wife just picked up one of these in November - black on black - thing looks EVIL

I love it. I'm just wondering what it would be like with a chip....

The X6M just edges out a stock M3 from a dig, to 100kph.... ask me how I know (my wife had a big shit-eating grin on her face for about three days after THAT little adventure..... )

I agree - it's a nice "club" to be in. We consider ourselves fortunate to own:
-X6m
-M3
-Z4M Roadster

It's like a little M owners club, in our driveway

Nice sighting. It's pretty rare indeed. Mind you, at my gym I see (2) E92 M3's, an E90 M3 and an E60 M5 pretty much everyday, and when I pull my car out of winter storage in a month or so, there will be 5 M's at my gym. Kind of sucks!

Nice pic! I only see two Ms near me. A black that is parked at a business and a blue that I see on the way in to work. And both of those are M3s not anything else.

The next day, I was parking at a Walgreens and parked next to a silver X5 M. I sure do see lots of Ms in my time.
