I agree that the E60 looks didn't do it any favors. But the horrible mpg of both cars seems to rule it out for many enthusiasts looking for performance-oriented daily drivers. I know plenty of you guys do DD your M3s. And gas is relatively cheap right now. But the fear of $5+/gal always hinders those sub-15mpg cars.
