    '02 M Coupe x2
    Nope. This way just yesterday - Monday, the first of December, in the year of our Lord, 2014.

    Every M I see down her in the greater LA area always winds up being silver. Eeez weerd.

    Buddy saw a Dakar M Coupe at Bimmer Clinic in the SFV a couple days ago. Said car looked to be in showroom condition with low miles. Anyone here?

    If orange blinkers, then it is a 2.8.
    If white blinkers, it's harder to differentiate, however have a look at the rear trunk lid under the BMW badge: short and black is a 2.8 and long a chromed is a 3.0. Also the interior center console is different.

    Trunk lid having the thinner/smaller rear hatch pull thing is a good indicator it is a 2.8 and it also has no chrome rings in the headlights. Though these are all things that could have been changed it is most likely a 2.8

    Nevertheless, it is a coupe, so I still like it.
    I am averse to paying full boat for anything, so yes, I did talk them down a bit. My old VW Passat had a similar paint scheme to this car, so I actually kinda like it this way. Oddly enough, I made a 2002 M Coupe in Forza over a year ago that looks almost identical to this car, so I thought that was kinda cool, too. Debating all black, but it would be a nightmare to keep clean.

    99 M Coupe
    Spotted this guy today at Daytona International Speedway, though he didn't come out on track much. Anyone here? I was working T1 & T2 so could not take a good photo.

    Thanks for the queues. Saw this car again. Wood center console. The rear hatch accent piece is also noticeably larger on my car. Definitely a 2.8.

    New to the breed so still absorbing the knowledge and all...

    Spotted the same Boston Green ///M Coupe on the same stretch of road for the second time this week. Middle aged lady driving, I was in my coupe the first time and we waved, I was in my truck today. It's nice seeing them out and about.

    Spotted two this weekend.

    Black (or possibly very dark blue) Coupe on the 405 S, near where the 605 and 22 all come together, around 7pm on Saturday night (12/13). It passed me rather quickly and I was too focused on traffic, so I couldn't make out any details. I tried to keep up in my E90, but got separated in traffic.

    Sunday 12/14, White M Coupe on 405 N, right at the 101 interchange, around 4pm~ish. Again, I was in the E90, and got separated in traffic. There was also a silver i8 a few cars behind it.

    Saw a black Coupe today at lunch on Roseville Pkwy (Roseville, CA) near Galleria mall. Looked to be a black 3.0 with red interior. Gave a wave and got one back! You here?? First time I've seen another Coupe in town in about 2 years.

    Saw an estoril blue m coupe at the wellington fl food truck invasion. I believe it was a 99'. Had aftermarket headlights and New York plates on it. Anyone know the owner? I have pictures but it's not letting me post them.

    Sorry to be like a proud parent, but had to post one from last weekend's car meet in downtown Portland (after I gave it a bath)...

    Just spotted one in Columbus, OH at a light on Hamilton, Rd off of the 270 exit. Not sure if he is on here, but little did he know I work around the corner with my black coupe and a guy one building down with his red coupe! Looks like Columbus is starting to get some coupes!! I was the guy in the passenger seat of a Surburban with my hand out the window pointing and thumbs upping!

    EDIT: It was a silver coupe.

    I lived in Honolulu for a few years and never saw this one. I kinda miss that place, even with the congestion and everything being so expensive.

    The owner said there are only about 10 in all of Hawaii, and one was "imported" from California

    I guess they're fairly rare there, but it's also a small place, so maybe you would see them around occasionally...

    One of them is now at my house in Colorado as the current M Coupe Buyers Guide Project Coupe. It was previously in Oahu.

    2000 BMW M Coupe
    Crazy coupe spotting today. I had seen a silver M coupe in my area (Cincinnati / Northern KY) a few months back but figured he was in town. Today, after nabbing brunch with the GF, we spotted the same coupe driving the other way on a decent populated road. Immediately took the next highway exit, gunned it and went 2-3 miles down the highway which runs parallel to the road we saw him. After a minute, we saw him driving along the street. Got off at the next exit...somehow lost him...but we drove back down the road wondering if he stopped somewhere. Spotted him at an ATM and pulled in. Ended up talking to the guy for 10 minutes in the rain about our coupes, very weird but cool experience, guy was quite nice and understanding about my admitted stalking.

    Turns out he lives about ~1 mile from my house. Crazy. I've seen him once in six months.

    Mine was one of the even fewer non-M Coupes, but it is now in Arizona with me. I almost bought an Arctic Silver 1999 M Coupe, but opted for the lower price and lower mileage M54 version.

    Is it black? Are you the black non-M Coupe I see running around the Ahwatukee/Chandler area regularly?
