Colorado M3 Sighting thread

We have a thread like this on the E90post side and I thought it would be cool to start one here

So.....I just seen a Silverish E90 M3 in the little shopping center off of Belleview and Yosemite. Who was it? The time was around 1230 and the car had dark windows and after-market wheels I think.

I only seem to see E46s and the occasional E9x. Never seen ailverstone around here since Murray parked an E90 in that color in CC mall.

I've yet to see a single E9x anywhere in Colorado while driving my own (and not parked at a dealer lot). 4 days in SoCal, I saw at least a dozen. Of course, I saw a lot of cars as well.

Seen a few older M3 models around, though. Always fun.

Probably me. '11 E90. Silverstone. Recently went with 18" Mich all seasons and black aftermarket rims in place of factory 19" setup for the winter. Take care.

Did we see you rolling through Cherry Creek this morning? (I was inside at the time, didn't get a clear look. You may have noticed the 5 E9x M3s parked in a row?

Spoke briefly to a gentleman washing his black E90 M3 in Westminster on Saturday. I believe that was the first sedan I've seen in the wild since I picked up my own.

Wasn't me. I would have stopped. Sounds like a large percentage of the E9x in the metro area.

I just seen a grey E92 M3 on some CSL type wheels on the corner of Smokey Hill and Himalaya/Orchard. It looked like a middle aged Asian guy. Anybody here?

How many of you have the headlight washers? Is it good or bad?

I was thinking of leaving off the CWP, and just going with heated seats.

Opinions please.

If your M3 will be a daily driver in winter, in my experience it has been very helpful for cleaning off spash-mud on your headlights.

I had the headlight washers on a 2006 E90 330xi and had a ton of problems with them. The hoses kept cracking and I'd come out to leave for the day to find the garage floor covered in windsheild wiper fluid. Bought my E90 M3 used and it only came with the heated seats (no CWP) and have only missed the folding rear seats... maybe the heated mirrors too (not sure if those come on the M3 with CWP?).

Edited to add: The hoses were fixed every time under warranty... it was just a PITA to keep having to take & leave my car at the dealership to get them fixed.
