A ton of AW's spotted in Vancouver/Richmond...

I went out on the weekend & I must've seen half a dozen or so AW 1'ers around.

There was a coupe parked on Robson.

A 'vert driving down Robson.

A 'vert parked on Denman.

A 'vert driving down Kingsway.

A 'vert in Aberdeen Centre parkade.

A coupe on No 3 road.

A coupe on HWY 1 near Portman Bridge.

All Alpine White.

Seems like it's the colour to get here on the West Coast!

Also, saw a black 'vert parked on Denman, a montego coupe also on HWY 1, a graphite coupe parked in Metrotown & a sedona coupe near Boundary (could be a Jessel test car).

They were pretty much all 135's. I think one of the AW 'verts was a 128i.

I guess they're all coming out to play on the weekends!

That's funny as I've seen a lot of 1's and only have ever seen one AW and it was a vert.

Not so much for me, I've seen one AW, the others have been other than.

I'm sure you'll get yours soon.

One of the coupes I saw I thought it was you.

I thought, 'wow Alan went for a 135i' but when I got closer it was someone else...


Hey, if you still want me to help when you make an order let me know.

White is the new silver - I've only seen white and black 1ers so far.....apparently those are the most popular colour for BMW period.

ouch! I feel for you. Hit & run makes me sooooooo mad!!!!

Do you take the Portmann eastbound in the evenings? If so I've seen you a couple of times - I'd be the one drooling from a black Honda Civic Coupe.

I wasn't sure if the 135 i saw was Le mans blue or Montego.

M Sport package looks nice either way

Hi Viv,

see if you can help me to get a 128i
the biggest problem is the trade-in value for my 323i is too low.
that's why I am hesitate to order.
can you talk to your SA please?

I like AW on a 1 series but I do see too many white VW GTI's out there.

When I was in Van for a weekend I saw four 1ers. Every one of them was AW. They looked so hot though it did sway me to finally decide on LMB. I kind of want to seperate myself from the popular monochromatic BMW colour choices, but it was a tough decision for me.

I saw a SGM 135i Coupe this afternoon on West 2nd heading eastbound.

Wow! Looked stunning in the afternoon sunshine.

It really popped out from all the other mundane rubbish everyone else was driving.

Simply gorgeous!

Yep! it was just after 4pm & a lady driver enjoying herself!

We went along W4th - W6th - W2nd - Gt Northern Way & at Clark I turned right & she tuned left.

Your car looked really stunning.

There was much jealousy on my part!

I saw that one at Aberdeen Centre too! Did you notice the Ferrari F430 parked 2 spots down from it? Otherwise we might've saw them at different times.
