Saw my first M Sport today and that was parked half a mile from where I live. A black one too which is a nice change. Interestingly enough it was only different from my car by the last character on the number plate so a close relation.

Looked good but not as good as mine obviously

Ok TWO spotted today (Friday) when I was travelling from Portsmouth to Billingshurst late afternoon.

An unbadged Mineral Grey with what looked like ED alloys - it followed me along the A27 between Chichester and Fontwell where I headed northeast up the A29 and it continued along the A27 towards Arundel.

Second was a AW Sport spotted in Pulborough at the two mini roundabouts. Only caught the front view unfortunately.

I'm starting to recognise the subtleties between the different types, chrome bumper strips on luxury and modern. Luxury has chrome outer strips too.

Glackster, can I ask where did you get your performance grill from?

Hi Deyvy, it's not actually the performance grille. It's just had a satin black vinyl wrap over the chrome. Cost 30. Couldn't find the actual grille units for a decent price in the UK. Really happy with it too, think the satin works well with the EBII, tried gloss at first an it didn't look right.

And another... Sunday around 5pm a Mineral Grey 320d passed me going down the A264 Crawley bypass. Could have been a 320i - by the time I spotted it I could only make out the '320' but it had a single chrome tipped exhaust so wasn't a Sport.

Another sighting to report today.

Driving along the M5 between J16-17 an Estoril Blue and therefore an M Sport. This one had xenons too and possibly 19" wheels but as we were both in motion at about 50mph it was hard to be sure

I still don't think they exist. F30s, that is. never ever see them And the M Sport is up there with Nessie for "reported sightings" by lone people with no witnesses. Still not convinced. I guess I won't be convinced they exist until Superman is on my drive

They may be rare but that just makes them even more exciting when you do see one. It's either the modern day version of eye-spy or top trumps for the daily commute. If you see one F30 then you get 5 points, for each option you can recognise add on 5 points and if you see an M Sport then you've hit the jackpot

If you want your Superman quicker you should park in a phone box. Never fails in the films

I'm starting to see the odd non-M Sport around and about but I still haven't seen another M Sport on the roads. I've done, getting on for 1000 miles in the last 3 weeks and not an M Sport in sight...

I've been seeing plenty of F30s to be honest.


Also drove past an estoril blue touring in Chester this week which was a surprise!

(Just) Saw a mineral red non M sport coming out of Tesco in Burgess Hill.

Just caught it out of the corner of my eye. Only thing I noticed was it had privacy glass. Was it you Rob...?

Not me... I was on Brighton seafront today around that time. Good to know I wasn't the only person to buy a red one though

Did see a Glacier Silver non-N Sport passing the bottom of Sackville Rd/Hove Street about the same time this afternoon.

That's a shame... I thought it may have been the first forum member sighting!!

It's been quite a day for F30's today.

Saw another white non M sport and my very first M sport this afternoon.

BSM M Sport was seen on South Rd in Haywards Heath @ 17:10. I think the people in it hasn't seen many other F30's either given their reaction as I drove past.

I'm starting to lose faith in sighting a forum member on the road.

I've seen about 6 F30's over the last 2 days, in the south Manchester Area, mostly Sale. And every one of them haven't shown a single sign mutual appreciation, so haven't bothered posting the sightings on here. Guess they just weren't F30 geeks. Ha ha.

Another sighting today to report, this time at the bottom of the estate I live on.

This time it was a Liquid Blue version, YP12...

I don't think anyone here as a Liquid Blue F30 so I don't think we'll have the first confirmed forumee sighting just yet

Hi all.I suspect that was me (sunday)! I was off shopping near bristol.
19" wheels & m sport breaks.....well spotted.
Bit off topic but I was thinking of getting the m performance exhaust, grills, mirror covers & spoiler......any thoughts?

That would be excellent news if it was you! I wish I'd paid more attention to the number plate now!

It was only the second EBII I've seen and looked nice. Was yours from Bristol too?

Thanks.It's from North Oxford BMW.
I had 325 msport coupe (on 09 plate) prior to this....F30 beats it hands down.
