Aussie Spotted Thread

Post your spottings of various members or any M2's around the country.


I often spot a black M2 with WA Euro plates around Elixir Coffee Shop in Nedlands most Saturday mornings. Anyone here?

Hey guys, I'm new here (been wandering a while, but just registered an account). Put deposit for a September build M2 a few weeks ago. Still far away.

Anyway, I live in eastern suburbs of Sydney. Seeing a LBB M2 going northbound on Anzac Pde then through the cross city tunnel time to time in the mornings.
Anyone here?

LBB spotted today leaving Perth CBD stuck in traffic on the onramp to Mitchell Freeway Northbound at around 5pmish.

Also spotted a BSM on Tuesday around 6:15pm on Kwinana Freeway Southbound. I think it left the freeway at Leach.

Saw a LBB on my way to Mount Nee the other day.

Was running in my wife's 125i M Sport while waiting for my LBB Pure ?

Yes Mt Mee

Didn't notice the number plate. But I think it might have been a Euro slim plate.

A mate lives next door to the other LBB. He had already been for a drive in mine when the neighbour took his over for show and tell. Mate says yeah been for a drive in one already... then oh, you didnt get tge sunroof. Some ego deglation followed me thinks.

I have a slimline white on black plate at the front, normal sized at the blunt end.

I just wanted the basic Pure edition I am the only driver so I don't need memory seats.

That said, my wife's 125i M Sport's Sport Seats are surprisingly uncomfortable on the hour-long-ish drive to Mt Mee last weekend. It really really needs some lumbar support. I really hope the Pure M2's lack of lumbar adjustment isn't that bad.

Spotted today LBB M2 in Sydney, between CBD and Alexandria. Rolled down the window to have a chat with you, you said you picked up the car yesterday then maniacally wheel span away when the light turned green. Anyone here?

No doubt this sort of behaviour also contributes to the increasing insurance premiums, up over $200 in the last 12 months (NRMA at least).

I noticed this as well ... but have you ever noticed in the media that when a BMW is involved, it is specifically pointed out..? If it is a more run-of-the-mill car, the brand is seldom involved. By way of example, the scumbag that killed folks in the Bourke Street mall was reported as driving a red sedan ... rather than a "red Holden" ... or a "red Commodore".

I certainly hope not: I got a quote for insurance for my M2 from RACV that was surprisingly low. I'm not yet ready to take out the policy, but I'll get a requote and see how much the $'s have moved.
