I saw my first one last week. A white 320d ED in Birmingham, UK. It escaped into a car park before I had time to get a proper look at it.

I've seen about 50 but only 5 or 6 on the road. All but two were black 320ed's. The others were a Melbourne Red 320d Sport and my Senior Sales Executive's Imperial Blue 328i Luxury. All of which were parked or going the other way, so only quick glances!

I havent seen any but did get one confused with a f10 from afar. Then again, it was near my local BMW dealer so it was perhaps a test drive of a f30.

I wish I could say that!

I've seen 2 on the road, about 10 at different dealers, but I don't have one...

Nothing yet, except for the one I test drove a month ago. I have been looking. I remember seeing my first E90 (not mine) on the road apart from test drive cars. I got very excited and somewhat jealous at the same time. I expect this to happen again with the F30.

I've only ever seen one here in Toronto, in a restaurant parking lot as I was walking back to my car. The kicker is, it was a mineral gray Sport Line just like the one that I'm waiting for. Made my evening, but so far the one and only sighting.
