Yaaaaay! Saw my first M Sport on the road.......EB one too.

11th Sept...M25 between M1 and M40 anti clockwise....about 05:40 in the morning.....shame it was too dark and drizzly to have a proper look. The rear reflectors are really distinctive.

More sightings to report today and both on the same roundabout at the same time.

First of all, a Mineral Grey 12 plate, from the wheels I would say a Sport

Then, an Alpine White 62 plate, only saw it coming onto the roundabout so unable to say it wasn't an M Sport.

Both at the Temple Meads roundabout in Bristol at lunchtime, approx 12:05.

It seems I either see no F30s or two at the same time

One more thing, if this was you then you really need to wash your car. It was filthy!

I saw six today, 3 white, all ED's I think recognisable by the smaller alloys, a black one, a red Sport and a silver sport.

Must say the silver looked quite good

Non had Xenon's ....and no M Sport's

Right, so on Tuesday I set out up the M1 on a 90 mile journey like most other days, but this time to actively count F30's.

By the time I got to my destination I had seen 4 white, 3 black, 2 red, and one Mineral Grey So 10 in 90 Miles...as the journey up was kind of peak hour, I couldn't afford to look out as much, concnetration needed for the road.

On the way back, traffic was flowing much more freely so could look out a little more. I counted no less than 18 F30's. Again some stretches I was in the slow lane where it is more difficult to identify cars coming the opposite way. No doubt I missed some.

My findings were that nearly 50% of them were white. Not sure if it is because white ones were easier to spot, more distinctive??? Next biggest colour is black, then Red, then a mixture of others.

Not one had Xenons.....no M Sports, although I could have sworn I saw an EB 2 flash past, but wasn't in a position where I could have confirmed this.

So plenty of F30's hitting our roads.

Another day and another round of sightings. No M Sports out there today, apart from mine

Three to report today.

One black or mineral grey on the way to work this morning. It was still quite dark so I couldn't be sure but if you were on the M32 at about 6:30 this morning it could have been you.

The other two were both white, one on the M32 heading off at J1, the other on the M4 heading off towards the M5 SB.

I would say that the majority of the ones I have seen have been white. I've only seen one EBII the rest have been mostly Mineral Grey. There may have been one in red but that was a while ago now and I can't remember

Yes could be..... I also think the 320D ED version is a very common company car spec, and most like to keep P11D down by going with standard colours, white being perhaps the more popular???

Stop mentioning that white is the most common colour! It's too late to change my order now!

So as not to thread jack, I've not seen any in St Albans, although I do only live a mile away from work.....

Is now a bad time to say I saw another white one on the way home tonight? If it is, just say so and I won't say a thing

We'll pass each other on the M1 no doubt and then RJBerry can say he saw another two!

I've only seen one since March and it was a white 320d. I can't be looking hard enough (or people in Sussex are hiding their F30's!).

I've only seen one in West Sussex in the last 3 months - and it was black so it wasn't you
