Of course loved detailing it.
Re: Depreciation: I sold my car for almost what I paid for it new (Little over ED invoice). She was exactly 2.5 years old with only 5K miles..... My previous 335 had a very similar story as well.
Keep on beating and tracking your cars people, it makes the garage queens that much more attractive.....
Overall, people buy their cars for different purposes.......
To answer Op's question: Yes, I loved driving my M3, did not mind putting miles on it and LOVED the fact it was not my DD in Seattle traffic.
So why'd you get rid of your M3? Just curious.

That's actually why I love my 6MT. No joyriders. And the very FEW people that I let drive know the consequences of messing up my car. All of them went away with big grins on their faces (some BMW people, some not).
