Much of my fun driving is interspersed with kid transport (drop kids off at activities/friends house, then take a spirited drive home, etc). I also take my M3 to our vacation home on the coast of Maine. It is a 2.5 hour highway drive. As such, I needed a degree of comfort and cruisability. Finally, even when vacationing, I needed to be able to carry a certain amount of people and "stuff" from time to time. Either that, or I don't get to enjoy my M3 when vacationing on the coast. How sad would that be?!
Remember, the argument that "I have another vehicle for practical stuff" doesn't hold if you spend so much time doing practical stuff that you never get to drive your toy.
I actully love to drive. Having a garage queen doesn't do it for me. Having a pure driving toy is a romantic idea, just make sure your life situations are really such that you will get your drive time.
If you NEED the backseats this holds, but the Spyder has two trunks and seriously holds a freakish amount of stuff.
