Am I being a crazy noob?

Okay well I just went to take my car to run some errands, and am I just going crazy cause when I got home I checked around my car to see if there were any like scratches or whatnot...and I feel under the front bumper and stuff LMAO...I feel like I want to drive my car spiritedly but then again I get this other side of me that just wants to not drive it cause I have this like thing about not putting miles on my car and afraid something like a scratch will happen to it....

Do any of you ever get like that??

That above paragraph may or maynot make sense, might of just been a venting session for me

lol i do the same thing bro.. i wipe down my car in the problem areas (front bumper, rear bumper, and front fenders) after every drive if i'm not going to take it out again the rest of the day. That's probably why i JUST hit 4k miles in my car.

little weird for sure....keep the car clean but if your not driving the car at all because your afraid it gets scratched or dirty, then you have mental issues! Car crazy obsessed! I am anal also but I do take it out at least 1 to 2 days a week and goto the city with it! You have been to two meets in Brooklyn and not once did you bring your car to a BMW car meet!! Go figure!

I was the same way, wanted to keep the miles on mine low since it has very low miles for the year (44k on an 02 ) and was very cautious with it. I still am, but with my daily driver's motor blown I now have to use it all the time. Needless to say I don't care about the mileage anymore, the grin on my face whenever I drive it says enough.

I shouldn't either, cause I wasn't like this when I had my 07 328xi but then again I didn't throw all this money in to mods either loll, so I guess thats part of the reason.

A car is a car -- drive it because it's meant to be driven, and enjoy it. Worrying about it all the time will just cause unnecessary stress. Just make sure you wash it regularly, avoid potholes, and don't park in tight spots

God forbid when you lower it and scrape your bumper or lip or whatever IT'S BOUND TO HAPPEN!!!!

I sometimes get crazy with the cleaning and all that stuff, then I realize that its only a 335i, Its not some Lambo, Aston, Porsche or anything else uber-expensive or exotic.....most people piss on 3 series cars, no matter what model. So who cares.

I really dont understand why people (mostly on here) mod thier cars, spend hours on here talking about modding thier cars, take multiple "professional" photo albums of thier cars, go to the dyno and make 350+hp, run meth, then NEVER DRIVE THEM!! lol Enjoy the car.....Enjoy any project you put time and money into, why do it if your not????

So when you think like that, its just metal, plastic, and rubber......Its just a car. Be anal about the cleanliness of it, have a good body shop and paintless dent guy, have a good local shop, have a good wheel repair guy and you will be good bro!!!!!!
