I am attempting to revive this thread. Just wondering what those of you who don't DD your M cars (or other bimmers) are daily driving. Here's mine (which I made a separate thread about last week). 2010 Mazda3 S Sport. Cheap, fun, good on gas. I decided I was not going to put my M3 though the paces of yet another winter here in the northeast. I'm bored and just waiting for track season to begin.

My 135.

I must admit I find it odd that people are shelling out a fortune on buying an M car and then NOT driving it.....

Fair enough, a 25-30 year old M car or much older classic I can understand, but a new or almost new car

I like to keep my M3 in the garage where it's warm and safe and I can rub it with a diaper.

Seriously, I have owned five BMWs and after a few years each of them got chewed up by the salt, sand and other garbage they dump all over the roads here in the winter. I now have the means to buy a third car so I am trying that for now. Plus all of that salt and salt brine is very corrosive and harmful, especially to the suspension parts.

you've got me worried man, I live in CT, have been for 6 years.

I've owned and driven a Mitsu Evo VIII and Acura TSX while living here, and neither of them were babied during the winters here.

Are Bimmer's particularly susceptible to rust?

I only ask because I also have a set of the F30 rust-seat-frame syndrome, and that's with 5500 miles on the clock.

If I would've known these cars were such wimps, I would've kept the TSX and just bought a used M3 for driving/garaging....

I can understand that, but imo if you're only driving your M in nice weather, you're ready to move up to a dedicated sports car. The whole idea behind the M cars is they offer the perfect compromise for daily driving and sportiness. If you're running two cars, why compromise?

At some point maybe, but for now this works for me.

^Not serious. Would be cool though for a daily. The thread got me thinking about what would be a economical and unique daily driver and the isseta came to mind. My 135 is my daily.

Z4 35i daily/only.

Only bummer is my commute is just 3 hilly miles... which isn't enough to get the oil/turbos warmed up, or achieve higher than 17 mpg.
I can't complain about the rest of the commute!

Maybe when it gets warmer out I'll switch to the bicycle.
