Default How many BMW's can you see??

Just a bit of nonsense, but the other day I was driving home from work and it suddenly dawned on me that I see loads of BMW's on the road and dont think anything of it... so the next day I decided to count how many I actually saw. The 5.5miles between my office and home, I counted 27!! That was not including mine! Thats all BMW's, all models new and old. The majority were newer 3 series, 5 series, 2 other 318ti's and a couple of M3's (NICE). I was just wondering if anyone had ever taken any notice of how many BMW's are on the road? I must say i was quite shocked to count 27 in 5.5 miles! Oh and 1 ferrari... but that doesnt count.. not as classy as a Bimmer!

one day when I was driving out after dropping someone off at the GSP airport I saw a long line of bmws. This was the most comprehensive cross section of bmws I'd ever seen in a row on the road. I'd guess there were 30 or more of them, from classics to new. There was even e30 m3's in there, old 6's too. I was in my e28 m5 and most of the people in the cars were staring at me just like I was staring at them. My only guess was that it was a group from the bmw plant going on a trip or something, regardless who they were, it was real fun to see.

Also almost daily I meet a maroon 325i on the road and when I'm in my white ti he stares, more people stare at the m5 though.

I see a good 50 per day I would say, I see at least one other 318ti per week. I almost never see M3's though, for some reason there are more 318tis in my town.

I see them all the time now. I thought I would be special when I purchased my ti 2 years ago. I notice loads of them here in Columbus. We seem to have a very eclectic mix of cars.

I live in Iowa so its in the range of 0-3 per day. Ive never seen another ti anywhere except for in pics but I do know that there are two white ones here. If I feel like seeing other bimmers then I go down to the BMW dealership.

There aren't a whole lot of Bimmers running around Cincinnati, unless your on the east side, then they're everywhere. I'd say <10 on a daily basis.

Definitely no TIs.
