Spotted in Calgary...

MW/SO M4 with the personalized plate and the black (CF?) spoiler.

Going from Glenmore to Crowchild around 4.15 today.

That would be my first 'in the wild' M4 spotting.

Anyway, very nice looking ride.

(I was, obviously, in the Tanzanite F80 cruising beside you....with that Tsuu T'ina police truck right behind us making any 'fun' impossible.... )

(god, why do posts like this always feel/look like a 'missed connections' listing on craigslist?)

Good question.

As that was literally the first 100% confirmed sighting I had in the wild (pretty sure I saw an MG one on Bow Trail in the fall, but I was running on the path and it was driving so didn't get a good look), my gut says it is a small number.

But, if I use my brain, I say "ok, Calgary BMW gets 1 or 2 F80 allocations a month, call it 4-5 F82 allocations a month, so over 7 months that is between 35-50 ish....maybe another 20 ish for BMW Gallery....then take into account the 30 ish that are showing up in inventory on the website (as sold, or stock or whatever, but not yet on the streets in any event) and, yeah....40 is probably going to be pretty close to the number.

Still rare to see.

I get excited when I see other F8x's out on the street (I think I've seen about 5 now). I don't get the same excitement anymore when I see my own car

I imagine that will start changing quickly here with the weather. A fair number of M3s are winter stored in Calgary ( for good reason ).

There is actually a fair number of them in the city, and I get a huge pang of jealousy every time i see one

Spotted my 2nd F8X in the wild this am. Nice SS M3 driving in on 9th ave to downtown.

What a great colour.

....also made me anxious to get my winters off and get the big boy wheels back on.
