lol, I'm guessing since it's a RI thread they'll probably know. I've been to an italian restaurant and a cute coffee shop on EG.

There is another 128i across the street from where I work in Warwick. Other than the gatherings at Colt state Park, the one at work, and the one at Panera, I have never seen another 1 series in RI.

crimson and blue water are probably the rarest of all the colors, even given that sgm was only available on the 08s

edit: good save RIbimmer, this thread was almost lost forever in the back pages!

I agree, 1's are still rare. That's why I still like to post to the "spotted" thread. Yes, I've seen two in the last few weeks, but that's after months of not seeing any others!

I just spotted a black 135 Cabrio on Main Street in East Greenwich.
It is the first 1-series that I have seen driving in Rhode Island.

All of my German friends speak English very well. My German vocabulary is limited to cars and food.
