I too don't understand why people say the car is meant to be driven, why did you buy it if you don't drive it blah blah, you probably can't afford it if you don't drive it
I do drive the car, and just because I want to take care of it and put less miles on it if I can doesn't mean I am babying it. I take it out on the weekends and smash it to 8400 rpm going to get milk. People should take into account also the areas where you might go on a daily basis for work. I commute into downtown LA everyday and that is somewhere I do not want to leave ANY car, let alone my M3.
I have a lifted FJ as a beater and it's awesome just running over fat dips or literally going over curbs for the hell of it!
