I have that ugly front license plate off now.
I plan on driving this car until it dies.
Then fix it back up and do it again. A manual swap is in this cars long term future. I think it would be cool keeping your first car forever. Personally, I think this was BMW's golden era (E38, E39, E46, Z4). I am not talking just about sizing. The size of the cars were pretty much perfect for their respective class. The balance between luxury and performance was pretty much spot on.
