So, is it just me or where are the f30s on the roads?

Ok, so I've had my new f30 since the end of April 2012. I saw one Modern Line vehicle in Munich upon my ED pickup (one, just one, even in the heart of Bayern). Now, back home I've seen maybe a half dozen more on the streets. I've seen tons of f10s (5 series) on the roads but no f30s.

Members what are your experiences?

I don't see many,if at all up here in Bergen County. I had my car serviced recently, and I was talking to my CA, and he said that the F30 is not selling much. He also told me when he does sell one, its usually the base line.

I've only seen one on the road many months ago here on the east side of Cleveland and know of 2 forum members that have one but that's it.

I'm seeing a handful every week now in Cincinnati. A mix of sport, base and a couple luxury lines, and surprisingly one modern line...I see the modern regularly near my office. Mine is the only M Sport and the only 335i that I have seen, however.

Only seen one or two near Southside Jacksonville. I've heard there's another M Sport in town, but that was way out on Orange Park. The ones I've seen are Base lines and a Sport 328i. No F30 335i yet.

Spotted a bunch of 328's in NYC including 1 black M sport but only 1 red 335 which was a sport line, so far my EB 335 M sport is the only one of its kind I have spotted.

My parking structure at work is BMW heaven (Mercedes, and now Audi's too). The day after I bought my car I saw a baseline mineral grey in the garage with dealer tags. A week later there was another grey baseline. I would expect more, in Bimmer heaven and all. It seems like Audi is the new hot thing with young professionals here.

But I have a prediction: When the last model of Honda Accord came out around 2009, I was interested, so I noticed them. I hardly saw any for the first year. Now they're everywhere. I think in four years we're going to be wishing we could separate ourselves from the pack somehow.

Enjoy it while it lasts, this is the best time to own an F30 3 series. Not many people have it yet.

I see more F30's all the time. BUT, they're typically white/black/silver. Not one other with my Imperial Blue....yet

Just started to see a bunch in central jersey. On good days I can see like 5 of them most just one. It could just be the area I live in and go to school though

I live in mid-Michigan and have seen three other F30's, one sport, one modern, one base. Given that this area has a pop of ~150K that feels like a lot, and I'm not searching for them.

I went on a business trip to L.A. last month and stopped counting F30s when I got to 10 on the way to the hotel from the airport.

Hartford/New Haven area here has been more or less devoid of f30's. I see one 328i luxury parked everyday on my way to work, and have otherwise spotted a total of maybe 3. 2 no-lines and one sport. I hope I never see an imperial blue or alpine white with a saddle interior. I might just throw a buyers remorse fit!

I live in Southern CT... I'm one of the few in the area.
And there are def none with my setup.
I like it!
I come from driving an Evo VIII so I like the exclusive car on road feel...
