    Saw a white e31 in the Bratlet area( suburb of Memphis) at a small reapir shop being worked on, looked like it had alpina wheels on it. Heard there was only one other besides mine in the Memphis area and it's silver, so wondering who owns it.

    Thought I might introduce myself here- picked up a beautiful Laguna Green 1993 850ci about a month ago in Seattle. smc850ci, catapultic, Jayccel - we'll probably cross paths sometime in the future. In the recent few months I have spotted a black 8 at Dick's. There's also a red 8 for sale at one of those used car lots along Lake City Way near NE 86th... looks clean from the road

    Yesterday (Monday) at around 3:20 p.m., I saw a dark-coloured 840ci with a dog sticking its head out of the back window driving on Homestead in Los Altos.

    Saw another 8er yesterday (Tuesday)...dark coloured (black?) car parked on Skyport in San Jose right by ClubOne Fitness Club.

    They aren't exactly recent, but a couple of old sightings came to mind this morning:

    -- Passed a dark-colored 8 on 24th Ave E heading uphill/south from the Montlake area in Seattle sometime this last fall/winter/early spring (I forgot to post it up here). Said "hey, nice car" to the driver and got a surprised laugh and "thanks" in response. I was driving an '07 black X3.
    -- For quite a while during the summer, a dark (almost certain it was black) 850 would park in the Mt. Baker Rowing & Sailing Center parking lot and spend time with the other people hanging around there in the sun. This was probably 2-4 years ago; it stopped showing up after a while though.

    After lurking Bimmerforums for a while and reading through this thread and the self pictures thread, I wouldn't be surprised if one or both of these were Jayccel. But whoever it was, I'd love to meet up sometime and take a look at the 8! My interest has grown from more of a 'superficial interest' to a technical and aesthetic admiration.. hah.

    Well it wasn't me this time. I've only had my 8 since Oct of last year. Although I am familiar with those areas

    Well, maybe someone else here then. Although the photo of your 8 under I90 on Lake Washington Blvd is originally what made me think of the one that used to show up at Mt. Baker. Anyway, my offer still stands — it'd be great to meet up sometime. I have yet to get a close look at an 8 for more than a couple of minutes... they always seem to avoid me.

    Hey Faisal,

    I think that may have been Ryako1...he's the only black CSi I know of in the area and I've seen him traveling around that route. Check post 308 in this thread.

    Spotted an 850 going in the opposite direction on Norpoint Way NE, as I was driving my 840. I but wasn't sure if you noticed or not. So rare to see any, anywhere.

    Glad you liked the pic under I-90 We'll have to meet up sometime, indeed.

    Spotted a nice green E31 with some shiny rims on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach last week. And one black 840 on Collins Ave.
