Portland Area Spotters Thread

Not in order of date, but so far I have seen a silverstone sedan twice, once on 14th and Lovejoy and once by West Elm. I've seen a Jerez Black w/19s on 14th and Marshall in a parking lot. I've seen my friend's SSII convertible. I've seen another DCT SSII on 14th and Marshall, a MR sedan by the broadway bridge and a Space Gray DCT that is parked on sunny days by Obah.

I haven't seen a single one in the 8 months I've had mine, except when we got together, and at the dealer. That's fine by me. How's yours post-repair?

Sorry, I haven't checked this sub-forum recently.
Wow, that's surprising. The car is doing good right now. I have some parts that are coming in for it that were ordered when the insurance adjuster looked at the dented parts that weren't replaced at Kuni. Those will come in eventually. I'm going to end up getting a headers-back exhaust also it looks like. The hard decision is which one to get...

Oh, and to add to the spotted cars. This is the M3 that I mentioned earlier, only this time covered in snow...

I have been noticing more and more M3s in the Portland area recently. I spotted a AW E92 downtown today (not Greg's), and a Space Gray E92 in the Whole Foods parking garage today also.

Yeah, quite a few more, but still not exactly common. Saw a babe in an E93 a couple days ago.

I park 40' from that Starbucks in a reserved spot on the first floor of the garage! Not sure if mine is "nice looking," though!

Someone with a white Coupe parked next to my blue sedan last week at the Tualatin 24 hour Fitness. I was sleeping or I would have said hello!

This morning in 112th (near the YMWCA) in Vancouver, I spotted a Black M3 Coupe (very clean). Exhaust sounded really good. Sharp.

I always see your car parked when I drop her off. I've often say, I don't see Greg's car. She replies, I can see it the rear, it's there. LOL.

I've seen one on I5 north in the same area during morning rush also. I've also seen it parked in the OHSU waterfront garage. It stands out a mile away.

If that is the one on 164th it is possible. However, there is a young lady with an AW M3 in the area.

I saw a Jerez black one on Hwy 30 about 5 months ago. All stock. Nothing since.

Haven't seen any modified or stock ones in Beaverton/Hillsboro and I am there every weekend.

Granted most of the time I am in the X5, but a few times I drove the E92 M3.
