Saw a 330d EBII at the NEC today. Grand Designs Live. Car Park E2.

post a photo when I get a chance.

NEC 12/10/12


Here's the one I saw in the Brecon Beacons about a month ago.


Lol, looks like there might be a influx of EBII showing up when the rest of us start getting them.

Saw my first F31 yesterday at about 10pm on the M1 near leicester.

It was a dark blue 330d luxury with xenons and 19's.

As I was cruising by the side of it I was sure that it sat lower than my m sport does. Admittedly I've only looked at the ride height of my car when it's stationary, not sure if that would make a difference.

Anyway, it looked very nice!

Spied a black Luxury Line going past the Fountain Pub in Ashurst on the Partridge Green road around 4:30pm today. (Didn't catch the back to see which flavour engine).

There's going to come a day when they're everywhere, but I'm still having fun spotting them for now

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.
Keep an eye out for me! I'm 20mls north of Manchester. Glacier Silver 328i Luxury. Mixed 18" 398's, Xenon's, Sun Protection Glass, Nav Professional. I think those are its clear exterior distinguishing features.

Saw my first EB M Sport this morning - have to say pictures don't do it justice, you just have to see it in the flesh!!

Was over at the local dealership in Portslade and it was parked outside with a salesman and a punter stood next to it. Some lucky fellow was either taking delivery or considering a purchase.

Quite chuffed to see another EBII on the road!

Any takers?

Should see me about in mine in December.

Although I live 650m from work and have a separate company car.

I asked about it before, but didn't ask "where did you get it from."

Where did you get your satin grill cover from?

Hi Deyvy,

It was done by a guy in Manchester, little company called Vis-Tuning, it's a satin wrap. They did my tints too, but didn't do a great job. I wouldn't advise using them.....well actually, you can't now cos the tw@t has closed his website and ditched his mobile number.

After all the promises he made of rectifying the defects, he just packed up. I hope I bump into him one day!

I reckon most places that do wraps would do the chrome on the grill for a few quid. Mine was only 20 or 30.

Hope the days fly by till yours arrives!

Oh yeah, I remember that thread now.

All this talk now about winter tyres... Not sure...

Really just depends on what the weathers like, which I guess no one knows. Even last year or last January, I didn't think we had much snow in Manc, well not that caused any problems for me.

Days are flying by though. Got my wedding in Jan, not sure whats got me more excited.

Was a good day for spotting M Sports today, 3 seen.

1. Went down the A34 and saw an F31 EBII going northbound just north of Oxford about 8:30

2. Further down the A34 near M3 saw a Silver M Sport F30

3. Coming back from Salisbury near the M3 saw another F30 EBII

Saw loads of F30's of all types today, including 3 almost in convoy (2 Black and a Red) near M40 on the A34.

Anyone on here?

Glasgow?

Mineral grey M Sport (62 plate, non xenon) driving behind me for 5 minutes today, driving under and around the Clydeside Expressway near the SECC, in Glasgow.

Literally about 15 minutes ago, just before 2pm. I'm just up visiting my bro up here, nice to see a cheeky wee M Sport in a rainy Glasgow!

F30s do seem to be a lot more popular around my neck of the woods.

Bearing in mind I live in a small town with a population of about 14,000 there seems to be a disproportionate number of F30s around!

Today on a rare day off I went into said small town and saw:

Black 62 plate Sport

Mineral Grey 12 plate also a Sport

White 12 plate which may have been a luxury judging by the wheels

Mineral Grey 62 plate, couldn't tell which variety

White 62 plate, another I couldn't tell.

I was only out for an hour and it seems like every man and his dog with an F30 must have decided to do the same

I notice you say you were in Glasgow recently. Did you Visit the Buchanan galleries shopping center? I seen an EBII m sport 320d in the car park recently. Could it have been yours? My own F30 was parked just behind it!

Anyone else in or around Glasgow? I'm starting to see more F30's. Seen a 62 plate imperial blue F30 on Byres Rd. a few days ago.

Keep an eye out for my own 12 plate Imperial Blue 328i Luxury with 19" 401 wheels!

Hi dude,

I was actually in the Galleries on Wenesday afternoon, level 7 just at the doors to the lifts. Not sure it was me that you spotted as I was parked against the concrete wall right next to the up ramp.

Looks like there could have been 2 EBII's in there!

I'm not sure what day it was I spotted it. The car I seen was parked on the top floor of the car park in the section that isn't covered by a roof. So I don't think it could have been yours.

Still it was the first time I'd seen an EBII M sport in the flesh! I had wanted the M sport but when I placed the order for my own car at the end of February I was told I'd be waiting until September an M sport delivery!
