Rare one this, for me at least....

Mid green (Orinoco?) B3 3.3 Saloon

At the lights by Hove Park in Hove - 800yds away from where I live - around 4.30pm Saturday

Swung it round to go back - but they'd cleared orf


Edit: Sea Green Metallic...

Must be pretty rare - I've only ever seen two in this colour advertised for sale. One in Cambridge, the other in Southampton...

Estoril Blue B3 3.3 saloon at Bluewater shopping centre on Friday. Not so keen on the rear bumper or Club Sport boot spoiler but each to his own.

Last Thursday E39 540i with Alpina wheels, and late Saturday evening I either spotted from the distance the E39 again (which I just mentioned) or the E38 (B12) that I keep seeing – both were driving pass my house. Sorry Grant if it was the B12 – I was walking back from the Chinese and I also had a pot of curry sauce, I therefore decided not to run and take a photo as I may have split the curry sauce. :wink:

At about 15:45 today Black Roadster with silver strips. The main road where my local Halfords is

On the way up the M1 we also spotted a 1 series with an Alpina boot badge on it :roll: no alpina bits other than the badge, i pulled along side in my B10 & just smiled then let him know what an Alpina was like

When that happens to me I'm usually in the missus' 306 or some nasty loan car (I remember seeing a lot of M5s all of a sudden when mine was in for its VANOS and I had a Golf Diesel Estate. Nice!).

Excellent job being in the B10!

Can't you walk around with a camera round your neck like a Jap tourist Neal? Or better still get a hard had and have Neals Head vision CCTV fitted to it! :P
