Whats Your Daily?

So what do you guys have as a daily driver? I couldn't find any thread dedicated to what peoples daily drivers are so lets hear it!

For me its a 2003 Toyota Camry LE, Bought it brand new in 03 for my Mom, and now its the Extra/Daily of the house...

2008 Toyota RAV4 V6 Sport. That's the go anywhere in any weather 100% reliable ride. My 335i is a land missile (FBO+PROCede) that has left me stranded twice and embarrased me a few times. If I absolutely positively must be there, you know I am not taking the BMW.

My 135 I just picked up is my only car. We do have my girlfriend's '08 VW Rabbit as an alternative though.

My BMW 328 convertible is the daily driver. And my weekend car is.........a late 1990's Honda. I'm not joking

The Honda is modified and is faster than my BMW. But it's no good as a daily driver. It's very low and theres too many potholes going to work. I get stuck in traffic a lot and its a stick shift (I got the BMW in auto). And I have a loud exhaust (yea I'm one of those guys), so when I pull into work, the Director of Finance looks at me like I'm some punk ass kid. Now I have a quiet, bone stock BMW 328iC and all those problems are solved. Plus its a hell of a lot roomier and more confortable than the Honda

depends on who's watching the kids for the day, but it's between my x5 or 328, I wish I could have gotten the 335i but back in 09 they were just flat out unreliable...

we all know that a 3 series BMW is no investment car. Why don't you guys use them, I understand if you need to drive a truck to work or if you have a couple of nice cars that you bounce between, but why dd some old car that doesn't have all the nice features of your 3 series while it just sits there depreciating?
