I drive all of my cars, hard! I don't want a garage queen (except maybe the Dinan E34 that only gets about 2-3k miles a year). Each car has their place...this said I need a daily driver and do would not want it to be a civic/accord.

Then, ya.. you should definitely get a Dinan M5 as a daily. And pray like a mofo it doesn't break down when you really need to be at work that day.
Funny enough I have an Accord, and it takes me to ballgames and tight parking lots, where door dings and birds can have at it. A civic/accord is not going to meet my DD needs/desires. And if the S3 were to break down I have a few other choices in the stable.

Sohistry = "subtly deceptive reasoning or argumentation", my wife is an engineer and pretty perceptive, I may need to go back and get a law degree ;-)

This all said, I just got a new set of tires on the E92 yesterday, and may need to keep it for a little while longer...but then again...
