Woah, maybe my friend wasn't bullshiting me then. Last night, about 9PM, right after we spilt and he headed home and I headed home he called me up and said "I might have just seen the new M3. Is that even possible?" He said he saw it in white though. I figured he was full of shit but he was in Glendale just off Verdugo and Brand Blvd. is in Glendale too; I'm guessing where you saw these M3s.

I'm willing to bet there are a ton of new M3s in Glendale. Hmmm, I'm going to have to stop by Nordstrom at the Glendale galleria more often.

Most are probably press cars and dealer training cars. Some are just general manufacturer-owned cars.

No need for the sarcastic remarks regarding the sharpness of the photos. The member is just trying to share his exciting spotting with us all.

You have to remember that the BMW VPC isn't far from Los Angeles, and they are always test driving around L.A. I remember seeing the new M5 in Newport long before it was released.

It is exciting news to know that these cars are being spotted around L.A.

I guess that's what happens when you're caught up in the moment.

It was a joke Jason. That's all. Don't take everything so seriously.

Get my PM?

Saw these today in Newbury Park, CA

I saw those same three today going the opposite way on Potero Road in Newbury Park, but with a mini cooper behind the 135i in the back.

Were you able to see inside the M3's to see if it had a stick, I figure they have to be testing the new DSGish tranny soon?

& the BMW design center is in Newbury Park, but I don't know if that is where the cars are originating from? What is VPC? Or is VPC the design center I'm talking about?
