I'm on here too and my car is a company one... Couldn't tell that from looking at it though.. !

I saw my first F30 M Sport today in the wild today! It was a black LB12 plate with 18s and xenons. Must admit, it looked very understated in black, you couldn't really see the lines of the front bumper and the rear diffuser very well. It was on Haywards Heath high street at about 8:30am. Probably not on here though as it looked like a company car to my trained eye..

I had an E91 in Sapphire Black, but when we came to selecting a colour for the F31 we looked at black again but as you say it hides the lines too much. Missus blackballed EBII and White, so the only colour left was Mineral Gray.

Relax I assumed it was a Company car as on the bottom of the numberplate said Blackhorse leasing and the backseat of it had Yellow Pages files all over it, ones which I recognize from when my Uncle worked for them.

Didn't mean to cause offence to anyone with my post.

I've now seen about a dozen around Notts - mostly white (may have seen the same car a few times), 3 black and 1 Melbourne red. All on 18s, none with Xenons that I've seen.
Several engines - most were 320d but there have been 1x 320i, 1x 318d & 1x 316d (the Red).

I think I've got the only Mineral Grey and the only Xenons in the area. Loving the adaptive lights

Mine's on order and due in March so I've become a bit obsessed about spotting F30s. But I have to say that even though I cover a lot of miles I've not seen that many. Hoping that exclusivity continues but probably see a raft of them after March.

Mine's going to be white too - so no chance of exclusivity there!! ��

Think I saw NISFAN today! In Bedford about 1pm on Cauldwell Street outside the Tyre place (Motorcare?). First time I have ever been in Bedford too. Car was looking good mate, the Xenons really make a difference

Hi Richard, yes I was in Bedford today, running my dad out to a motor home sales place, that's 3 hours of my life I'll never get back, ha ha .

Were you in the F31?

No mate, I was in my Dad's Passat going in the opposite direction. Popped to see my brother who has just moved to Bedford and had lunch in the Embankment.

Followed an identical 320d Msport, white with red leather seats, up the A1 sat am from Peterborough
Was interesting to see how my car would look to everyone else
I did give a 'hiya' flash, but no response sadly

2015 M5  [4.50]
Yesterday out and about and three F30s spotted around my locality - Chepstow / Caldicot.

First a Liquid Blue one near the St Pierre golf course.

An Alpine White one on the link road heading towards the M48 junction.

Lastly a Bronze one at the Larkfield roundabout.

I only popped out for half an hour, seems like everyone else decided to do the same!

Still a rare sight in Preston (North west of England). On the way to work, I see an F31 Msport EBII with Performance wheels and grille (very nice) and a red F30 sport. I may see one or two actually on the road over a week but that's it...

Sweet! I can safely say, I've still only seen one Msport so far...

Saw what I think was my first M Sport Estoril come past me on the M1 northbound just before the M18 junction this morning. Didn't see whether it had Xenon's as only noticed as it was passing me. Will be adding mine to the roads from 1st March and I will be fairly rare - a 320i xDrive M Sport Estoril with Xenons, spot me if you can!

Saw a white M Sport in Haywards Heath high street last Sunday. I was going the opposite way so didn't catch the boot badge, but looked nice though.

That could well have been me.... I was up and down the high street a few times during the day.
