A couple weeks ago I picked up a 2009 Honda Fit Sport. I got a killer deal on it, much better mpg than the BMW , and allows my E92 to rest in the garage over this winter for me to order and install a bunch of parts before spring time , with the ultimate goal of upgraded twins/single turbo over next winter 2020-2021

Actually, yes I am. If you saw a Techno Violet coupe with LTW wheels and no spoiler, then that's me. Don't think I've seen another TV one around!

I have only seen one. I live in Landrum/Tyron territory, but work almost in Greer. So I get to see the parade of BMW's each morning in on the way to work when their shift is getting ready to start.

Actually have a vendor who gave me a pass to a "Track Day" at BMW coming up in a few weeks.

But beautiful car man. My wife must have thought I was looking at another woman when I seen it as she was like....what do you keep looking at!

Haha that's pretty funny because then it must have been me for sure. I work in Greer. I'll definitely keep an eye out for you! Not too many modified 1ers around here either.

Yeah....I haven't seen many either. Mine's only the 128i.....but I was looking for a dependable daily as I have the Corvette for the weekend. But I plan to upgrade it this summer for probably a C7Z or at least GS.

Looking back at it, I bet an older (2008 or so) M3 would have been fun as a DD. I used to have an E46 M3 and it was a blast.

The contrast in driving characteristics between the two make sure I never get bored!

I daily my m5...only time I would garage queen a car would be for investment reasons. If it's not gaining 10% a year drive that thing like you stole it and enjoy the money spent! Life's too short not to enjoy the toys we have. I used to daily a corolla and constantly would just be pissed I wasn't driving my "fun car" so now everyday I am driving my fun car and loving it!

I think I would actually prefer a 128i! I've considered adding one as a DD but figured it would be too similar to my E36. My E92 M3 made an awesome DD before I got my E36. Would still be actually but I'm too attached to it and plant to keep it for good. That's why it's turned into a nice weather car only.

Btw, don't know if it might interest you, but my good buddy has a red C7Z with a manual that he's looking to sell. He bough it brand new from a dealership in ATL and hasn't quite gelled with it. He's put a few thousand miles on it.

I've been highly considering picking one up. Between my 2 cars and my 60 mile round trip commute, I'm spending upwards of $400 a month on gas. No bueno.

You can't go wrong with a Honda, really. Reliability, resale value. The main hazard is that it's a little to easy to fall asleep at the wheel. Very manageable, though.

yeah get a used honda. my 09 civic takes me on my 80 mile round trip commute. 1600 miles a month, 30mpg (its all highway so this is consistent). 53 gallons a month at $2.12 for regular. $115 a month.

400x12= 4800
115x12= 1300

so like in 2-3 years the FIT/Civic that you get will have paid for itself with how much you're saving on gas.

How about a used Honda insight (new gen), crazy high mpg and reasonably priced.

Now Cayenne Diesel. Love the torque and mpg. Range is pretty sick, 750 miles. Also diesel here is usually cheaper then 93, so some savings there too

Some of your commutes are insane, the miles some of you do is mind boggling. I know I am unusual but I do about 6,000 to 7,000 miles a year.

depends on where you live and traffic. my commute is 45 miles each way, but it takes me 30-35 minutes tops door to door. its actually pretty relaxing and nice way to unwind after work.

i've been to chicago, ny, miami, san fran... that traffic just isn't for me. i'd lose my mind.
