Why don't we have a sightings thread?
 
I was thinking about this earlier today. There is a sighting category on this forum, but it is very Toronto area specific. Shouldn't we have something similar? I mean how many times do you see something you want to post while just driving around, but don't because there is not really an outlet for Ottawa based sighting discussions.

I shall break the ice.

Saw the cleanest e30 coupe, black on the 50. Don't know who's it was but I was trying to catch up to it to give the guy a thumbs up lol. I think it was on Tuesday during the morning rush.

dexspeed 04-12-2010 08:57 PM

blue e46 m3 vert at the new barrhaven plaza; driving very quickly through the shopping center around 8ish

bmwconnect 04-22-2010 03:00 PM

Mint red e30 hazeldeen mall area around 4-5pm yesterday

carjoe 04-22-2010 03:13 PM

Black E92 M3. Tinted with black rims. *droooool* East-South-ish

radi0activem 04-22-2010 04:22 PM

I saw a really nice 2002 on the 417 at about 4:30am a couple of weeks ago. Driving pretty slow, but it looked really good!

Duct_Taper 04-22-2010 04:49 PM

carjoe, I think I might have spotted that same car a few times in a parking lot behind CHEO. Did you spot it somewhere near there?

carjoe 04-22-2010 09:13 PM

Yup. I'm at the general and it was seen on innes and right by elmvale...

Duct_Taper 04-23-2010 12:25 AM

Probably the same car then. I don't love the E9x 3-series, but that one is gorgeous. Tan interior too (seats & door panels anyway).

I was at bayshore last week, parked beside a minty fresh looking e30 iX. When I came out, an older guy was getting into it.. I *RAN* to talk to him before he left lol. He was an older guy, about 55-60. He owed it since 1990, it was one year old when he bought it. It had 107,000km (I think) now. He lived in BC the whole time, and just moved back this month. The car was damn near perfect, except the yellow roundels on the 15" (ix?!) basketweaves. Zero rust, zero dings, perfect interior. Was dirty tho.

He has a late model E39 540i too. I encouraged him to join the local club. Ironically, he was eating an icecream cone in it the whole time we talked. :D

Here's the view from my office today.

It's a sighting. It just happens to be mine.

bmwconnect 04-23-2010 02:35 PM

Can you get off work early and come play at the Scotiabank for a bit? :P

everlast 04-23-2010 02:38 PM

Maybe! What time?

bmwconnect 04-23-2010 02:39 PM

anytime that is good for you :)

everlast 04-23-2010 02:43 PM

I'll see what I can do!

carjoe 04-23-2010 02:47 PM

I think I know where you live. We're coming to get you...warn your wife about the hooligans.

everlast 04-23-2010 02:48 PM

She knows all about the hooligans. :)

everlast 10-30-2010 03:10 PM

Thread rez-erection!

Spotted a 91 E30 318is with missing front lip, looked clean. Was at baseline / woodroofe and went through the mcd's drive-thru around 12:30am.

I was drunk.

MaxBell 10-30-2010 10:13 PM

Saw a nice little black (vert, I think) E30 over by Riverside Drive, then followed him down Airport Parkway to South Keys. Pretty nice stance, just wondering what upgrades there were.

Bimmer p.i. 11-02-2010 01:29 PM

I never noticed them before I got my own BMW, but I see them EVERYWHERE around this town, now! I work downtown so I see anything from e30's to brand new - on Elgin, O'Connor -- everywhere!! this town is full of Bimmers!

Philboski 11-02-2010 03:23 PM

Saw a sweet Estoril blue E36 M3 on the 417 yesterday. It made me think that one of those would be a super replacement to my 540.

bmwconnect 11-02-2010 03:27 PM

derek owner of autovation most likely

I saw a MINT BMW 850 yesterday going east on Hunt Club by uplands yesterday... looked exactly like this*mw*:

Bimmer p.i. 11-05-2010 12:24 PM

There's a guy with an 8 series vert who often parks on Bank street, near Lisgar. I like the 'butresses' resessed into the top. Nice touch. This morning when I got to my office on Cooper there was a red M3 e36 parked on the street, too. Pretty nice from where I saw.

Bimmer p.i. 11-05-2010 08:50 PM

Well - are martinis 'really' considered "drinking"?

Nah ... they're appetizers!

Bimmer p.i. 11-08-2010 06:33 PM

okay so I saw it again today and verified that it's a 6-series vert. My bad *hic*

everlast 11-09-2010 02:08 PM

B E A U T I F U L condition white 91 318is at the small mall @ Carling / Kirkwood, parked in an end spot. Even had new wheel emblems on the clean weaves.

My neighbours car! Also owns a e39 Montreal Blau 540i

msinger 12-09-2010 07:25 PM

saw a 325e on baseline that then turned on to centrepoint dr. last night

MaxBell 12-09-2010 10:34 PM

Not I. However, I was there at about 3:45 today.

MaxBell 12-12-2010 01:04 PM

I saw a late model red 318i E30 at Carleton last night. It had a nice spoiler on it, just wondering what it was/where I could get it. Flowed really nice with the lines of our cars.

I have the M-tech 2 wing. Came with the m-tech 2 kit that's on the car =\ If your interested in it man. I'll bring it down when I go home if my dad didnt throw it out *no-no*

MaxBell 12-12-2010 07:48 PM

Is it tall? Like not the one on your car now, but it was like a boxy tall spoiler, like 5 inches off the trunk. Attaches only on the two sides.

Yea it sits like 2" off the trunk. I wanted to put it on my car but I needed to get a new trunk lid so I could re-drill 2 holes per side to hold the wing down. But that wont happen.
