that's me. i'm always parked next to a pillar to prevent as many dings as possible. I'm usually there before everyone and leave after everyone, so i've yet to see another 1 in the lot. Cheers though!

Grey 135i spotted on Mission Blvd at around 7pm today. You were heading up north towards the mission san Jose area, while I was going towards warm springs. Car looked amazing from the short glimpse that I got. Cf trunk maybe? or for sure a bigger trunk lip. Black wheels and possibly lowered?

There can't be too many 135'ers in your color modded out like that in Fremont. We should have a mini-meet sometime! I'd love to check out your car closer!

I see one at my office parking lot in Sunnyvale on a regular basis now, but I think it's a different one, since the one I see still has dealer plates. I'm not a fan of the AW, and definitely not with all those decals on it -- but otherwise I do slightly regret not waiting and getting one of those -- I'm also not a fan of leases, and sometimes need longer range, so it's not real regret. But they are cool!

Yeah that parking lot is terrible along with many others here in the Bay Area. Love the color of your car!

This is not entirely true. I say entirely because part of CHP's job is to issue citations, with the primary goal being a reduction in the Mileage Death Rate and the statistics have proven that more citations = lower MDR. Plus, the fines for citations issued by CHP go to the city/county in which they were written, therefore there's no monetary incentive to issue more citations (not the case for PD or SO). Regardless, everyone should drive carefully for their own safety and the safety of others.

So long as it's not a speed camera... Has anyone else noticed that CHP are using radar less as of late?

The only lasers in my area that I've spotted on my RD have been on 237 near 101 or on 280 between Palo Alto and 92. Mostly I've seen just Ka band.

VO 1M in San Jose

Finally spotted a 1M. Valencia Orange to boot. Corner of Naglee and The Alemeda. VO looks much better than I imagined.
