It's Official: Long Island is now inundated with F30 328 XDrives.

Never slouches for the latest benzes or beamers--and lately Ferraris and Bentleys--I was surprised to see such a dearth of F30s on Long Island roads in the past year. No more.

F30s are out in force all over the place, likely thanks to the recent arrival of the AWDs. Today alone I spotted nearly a dozen, as I was dragged by my better half from mall to mall across western Suffolk, mostly black and uniformly 328s with xDrive: a combination of Sport and Lux models.

Harmony is restored.

I live in Huntington. I've yet to see another F30 every other week or so.

Not a single F30 here in the western Philly suburbs, I'm really surprised but also looking forward to being the only one soon...

Surprisingly few F30s in New York City. Seen only 4 so far over the last few months.

I think the only RHD F30 xDrive is the 320d xDrive.

I'm in Syosset. Haven't seen many on this side of Nassau/Suffolk border but almost all 328s when I do see them.

Keep your eyes peeled. I'm also in Huntington with a AW msport 335. But I hardly see any other f30's around. I saw one the other days on rt. 110 that was black with black wheels and tints. Probably the second one. I've seen in the area. Lots and lots of e90's running around still.

Buying a 335 isn't enough to register your disdain for 'lesser' steeds, so you need to comment, too?

By the way, if anybody in the area needs some coding done I have the cable and software. Added a bunch of options to my own car.

No charge, but no warranties .

I know what you mean, since posting a similar thread, I've seen almost a dozen F30s, in and around NYC. They've mostly been Alpine White or Jet Black and a majority of those being 328i' base models.

I think we are seeing the effects of the "holiday to remember" campaign and the availability of X-Drive. Wow.

I'm in Dallas TX and I think one other M Sport 335 is on this forum but I have yet to see him...I literally see no F30s, in the last three months I have probably seen 2-3

I saw a very old lady driving a new F30 328i in Phoenix last week. I saw another F30 328i two months back. No more.

It was bound to happen, we're talking about the 3-series and it's been one of BMW's best years.

One upside is I can finally see the car in motion from from the outside, I've only seen a few other F30's on the road.

The guy 4 doors down bought a jet black 328xi Sportline. I don't think he was amused when I brought home my 328i Jet Black Sport a month later. But so far, i've only seen his, mine, a silver one (which looked cool couldn't tell if it was an x or not) and an M-Sport Lemans blue 328xi (at a local dealer). I'm considering my self still in the "cool" club at this point!
