Cool! Did he/she say hi? I didn't know we had so many here in the bay. I randomly see a couple of Z4 coupes, but rarely ever the M

I just waved and he waved back, didn't get a chance to chat. =)

There are so many M Coupes in Bay Area it makes it seem like it's not a rare car.

[sings] "Fat guy in a little coupe..."

Stock BS Z4MC north of San Jose on 280 N.

I mean, he seriously looked uncomfortable. I'm calling out his weight because he's the first d-bag I've encountered in 4 years of ownership. Pulled up behind him for a mile or two. He sped up to get away. Then slowed. Then I pulled up beside him in case he didn't see me behind. I waved. He acted like he didn't see me but I know he knows I'm there by now. And if he doesn't, he shouldn't be operating a motor vehicle. Fine, go ahead and be a loner. You don't deserve this car.

I think I know who it is. Might be Bill (EMP07). He'll probably come out with us for the December 23rd Laguna Seca Zpost Takeover

I'll probably meet up with him so he can take a look at the AutoSolutions SSK. You want to join in Marin?

that's so lame...I hate people like that
Unfortunately most Z4 owners aren't enthusiasts. They just like the way the car looks so they bought it...I've pulled up next to plenty and tried to give them acknowledgment but usually I just get blank stares or confused/dazed looks lol

Sure. Just let me know when and where, and I'll try to make it.

Spotted a TiAG (or Space Grey) Z4M on an open car-carrier today in Folsom in a residential area. Had my dad with me, with lots of family stuff going on, so I couldn't chase it down. I wonder where that car is headed?

Saw a silver grey roadster in the section 11 parking lot of Laguna Seca during the Moto GP race this weekend. One heck of a race!

Ran into a fellow Z4MC owner at Edge Motorsports also getting his Apex EC-7's installed at the same time I was! Real nice guy, gave him my contact info and he said he's going to try and make our next meet (Lon parts swap 'fest...hahah) and is definitely interested in track days and drives.

The shop foreman at Edge said he's never had two Z4MC's show up at the same time!

the lips on the hood.

On another note, I spotted an interlagos blue M coupe the other day in Cupertino. Probably an off-main-site Apple worker? A caucasian male approximately in his 30s or 40s? Actually kinda looked like John, but I doubt he'd be in Cupertino around dinner time?

I was in the family van, so I didn't want to wave and scare the guy

Saw a Imola Red Z4MC around 3:00 PM headed north on 101 just before 85. It was flying down car pool lane going like 90mph. Too risky to chase him down.

Spotted a silver Z4 coupe this morning in downtown San Jose. Waved hi to a seemingly caucasian male in his 20s or 30s.

I have on other occasions seen female Z4 coupe owners, but this is the first time I've seen a guy in the street in one.

What's up guys! I've been out for quite sometime, just had a beautiful little girl and she has pretty much taken over my life. I even contemplated selling the coupe but then quickly smacked myself and changed my mind. I know i bailed on the EuroSunday meet a while back because of work and still may not be able to attend anything in the very near future but I'm still here.

Spotted a Space Gray 3.0 Highway 50 in between Hazel and Watt. And a silver 3.0 Roadie too!

Was it Z4 night?

I have a 2007 Imola Red Z4MC and I drive around the bay area a lot. I thought I would introduce myself my name is Ace, and I live in the north bay I'm planning on using the car for autoX this year mostly with ESCA.

Is that Bolinas in the background?

There was a Black M Roaster being loaded onto a flatbed truck. It was on 101 South, right after the Hillsdale Entrance (Foster City/San Mateo). Not sure if it was someone from here but hope everything is OK
