Yes...but what is enjoyment? Some people enjoy having their cars in pristine condition. Some people enjoy the special feeling of driving the M3 specifically because it is not their daily driver.

Like everything else, to me, it is about balance and moderation. I am one of those people who loves driving my M3 but want to keep it looking pristine as well. I have found a nice balance. It is not my DD and I don't deliberately drive it in bad weather, but I do drive it in nice weather for all sorts of varied purposes. 10000 miles in 17 months. Enough that it isn't a garage queen, but not so much that it doesn't feel special when I do drive it.
