Chicago Spotted Thread

Keep on seeing AW M2 on Peterson in Edgewater area, nicely lowered. I was usually in my Flamenco Red X6. Anyone on here?

I'm in my LBB in Lakeview. But I do come around Edgewater often. I once spotted a fellow LBB on Addison (we were headed in opposite directions. He smiled, I dipped). That's the only other M2 I've seen in Chi-town. Let me know if you guys are down for a meetup.

Still have yet to see one in the wild here in Chicago but will be adding a BSM to the mix! PCD scheduled for Wednesday - hoping to get her back in one piece w/o any paint protection to bring to my guy in the burbs. She'll reside in the West Loop starting Sunday

Saw a BSM M2 on route 22 yesterday. Driver flashed high beams and I waved.
I must be driving a lot, seen almost 10 M2s in Chicagoland now...

Nice dude! What goodies did you get?
Also your profile pic look oddly familiar, that's not Chicago Auto Pros Glenview is it? I was just there for a detail today

BTW, If you haven't, you should join ChiTown///M Club
There's a cruise coming up at the end of June, love to see more M2 represent.

Good to know on the ChiTownM FB group...thanks for the intel!

Yeah, the pic is outside Chicago Auto Pros in Glenview post PPF and ceramic coating. They do an awesome job!

Great having IND in the backyard. Went up and grabbed the black chrome cosmetic kit (grilles, gills, reflector deletes and badge) and did some mod planning! Really really loving this car...would be happy to come rep the M2 at the cruise!

Just saw an MG with a girl behind the wheel on Lake Cook and Sanders Rd. I have an LBB. Looks like she spotted me first. Tried to pull up next to her and give thumbs up but couldn't due to traffic. First time saw another M2 on the road and first MG (seen a black and a white one at the track once). I must say MG, at least when clean, looks fantastic and very menacing. Who was it?

In re to the MG on Lake Cook / Saunders -- that was my wife on her way home from work ... at dinner this eve she mentioned that she saw her first LBB today and gave the driver a wave. Just got her hand waxed this past weekend. Makes a huge difference.

Probably! I head to and from Wisconsin pretty often. Are you in an M2? I still haven't had the pleasure of putting mine through the paces on the highway with another one.

Hey all!

Added another LBB to Lincoln Park last month. Love this car!

Saw another LBB while driving this morning, pulling out of a condo building at Hollywood & Sheridan. I waved but not sure if the driver saw me.

I've seen LBB M2s in Bucktown and Lakeview, perhaps the same one, but not sure if I've seen any other colors in the city. Or maybe they are just sneakier!

I was in front of two WRX on Diversey last night and I pulled off for gas. The WRX then pulled up to the light and started revving their engines at each other. I immediately regretted my decision to get gas at that moment!

Just got my '16 LBB home in Old Town today. Might have seen you bjams earlier this week if you were driving your LBB down LaSalle at like 830am?

Hope to meet you guys at an upcoming event or something. One thing i noticed with the car today (First day of ownership) is how bad Chicago roads are. You feel every bump and pothole in this thing!
