I have a Peugeot Bipper Van for work duties circa 25-30K a year.

Missus has a Mini Countryman cooper S.

The 335i was a weekend tool, or for less tedious cross country drives to meetings / clients etc, just not everyday.

Same for E63 AMG.. keep it off the M way, that's just wasted mileage/fuel.


Missus won't allow a "selfish" sports car "wasting" our money on something just for me, it has to be family centric and useable by us all, thus the E63 being an estate!

I don't know why some guys are saying it's still a 320D ... To me regardless of what car it's my baby ... Haha


Lol I'm not saying this in a bad way ... I didn't get mine on lease or
Anything ??? So how I keep it will reflect on what I get when I sell it... Be honest wouldn't you be out off if you were buying a 2012 plate with overly high mileage ?

Tbh I know it's not an ///M car or anything but I'd rather not use and abuse that .. Just doesn't seem right to such a new car


Ps using the e93 just now and then might sell the Type R in the summer

Exactly. It's your car, and you can do whatever you wish with it. Enjoy it!

If I had a garage big enough . . . .

The E91 is not the toy car, but a "best" car, and certainly not an everyday car, that's a ratty, tatty, rattly, rough '05 Mondeo Tdci, with lots of miles already on the clock, and which I don't mind taking on short runs, or putting a Builders Bag of rubble in the back - it owes me nothing.
The toy is a '73 MG V8
The other toy is a '54 MG TF, which, although it isn't officially mine, I am the only person to use it as the owner cannot, and his wife won't, drive it. Lucky for me.
The most used toy (get the idea here???) is the '13 Husqvarna TE310R. 75mph flat out on the road, on the trail, sand, mud and most other semi-solid surfaces!!

Not forgetting SWMBO's FLabia vRS, which can result in an interesting drive at times (when she lets me use it!)

afalton - my son has an EP2 Civic Sport also - he loves it, with the Type R looks and almost diesel-like fuel economy, and it's cheap to insure too. Very under-rated for the younger driver.
