    You see someone taking pictures of your car...

    Do you go up and talk to him about it?

    Wait until they so you don't have to talk to them because you forgot what the brochure said about your car.

    Ask him what he drives?

    Turn off your bluetooth and throw your frappuccino at him?

    Other?

    In my case, I would say "can I help you?" if I have a bad feeling about the intent. If it's just an enthusiast I wouldn't do/say anything.

    I would ask what they were doing. Then I'd tell them to join my website.

    Then it turns out they have a prius, so you decide to race them in reverse to make it even.

    Nobody takes pics of my car LOL. I would honestly go up to them and ask why they're taking pics of this Cobalt and what's so special about it.

    Hah good stuff.

    What happened with my was I was walking out of the Walmart parking lot and saw this sick E46 M3. Wanted to go take a closer look at. Noticed two people standing in front of the car smoking cigs. Dude was wearing a beater even though it was like some 30 degrees or something. He had tattoos and everything, probably Yakuza. So I decided not to confront him. Didn't have time for gang battles. I was in a rush to get home. Picked some new mechanical pencils, really wanted to try them.

    I've met some cool people who I caught taking pics of my car. Even before I had my first 335.

    I used to get it all the time.

    A few stories:
    Came out of a restaurant and 2 guys were taking pics of the ride and saying how hot the car was. I approached and one guy asked if it was mine. I acknowledged it was and they completely turned cold. It was like they were disappointed I wasn't someone else. I don't know who they were expecting but clearly it wasn't a guy who looked like me.

    These 2 girls were behind me snapping pics. I thought it odd they were taking so many of the rear, like they were trying to get the tag. So I stopped and walked back to ask them why they were taking pics of my tag. They denied taking pics at all. So I told them turnabout is fair play and I took pics of their tag.

    I understand that if you buy a nice car and then mount on expensive wheels, bodykit, roof spoiler and drop it, people are going to notice it. I don't mind as long as they are respectful.

    Next time you guys see someone taking pictures of your car, stand right next to them, whip out the smart-phone, and start taking pictures of THEM. Thats when it will get interesting.

    I get all the time. If it's kids and younger people, and if i'm not in a hurry, i hang around with them for a short while. They remind me of myself. But if it's adult persons, specially Albanians or Romanians, i approach them and ask them if i can help them or not.

    I was walking back to my car at walmart, and I see a young employee with a orange vest on, stop midway through collecting carts to snap some pictures of my car. I wander over to him and this gold is what happens:

    Me- "Wow, is that your car?"
    Him- "No, but I wish!"
    Me- "It does look nice... what is it?"
    Him- "I think its an M5. They're really fast, probably a V12."
    Me- "Holy crap."
    *pause while he takes another photo*
    Me- "Well, thanks! Bye."

    I unlock the car and get in, wave at him while he stares at me. I $#@!ing lost my $#@!

    Well he already lost it when he thought a 2 door E92 could be a M5.
    Let alone knowing how many cylinders it is supposed to have...
    He had respect for the brand, though Click here to enlarge
