Cold isnt anything! I drive my car unless the snow and ice are crazy. This was me going through Vail on the way to MFest last year.

BTW, was that your 335 on M6 reps in the last pict? I ask because I had a black E92 335i on M6 reps before I traded up to an MR M3 as well.

Wow, your 335 looked exactly like mine...you have excellent taste! I did drive my 335 in snowstorms (with some winter tires) but the m3 is different. It's going to be a while before I can get myself to even drive in the rain on purpose. Your m3 look great btw (I had seen that pic before).

The M3 is a very strange car in one respect IMHO. NEVER have I had a car I love more and loved to wash less. The reward is great and awesome but the actual work is a tedious pain in the ass. I think I'd enjoy it alot more if the 359 wheels were easier to clean also. All I know is I've had alot of sh!tty cars I enjoyed washing more that didn't look remotely as good.

I dont get people who own an M3 and dont drive it. I drive my car every single chance I find.

I agree with what people said above! Sometimes I just drive around to drive around! I'll make up pointless errands like looking at polish for my wheels when I already have 10 cans at home. Or I'll pretend like something is broken on my macbook pro and then take it to the apple store.

I got a few wheels I have in mind for you. I'll go ahead and send you a PM

I drove it about 200 miles 1st few days but haven't driven it at all in past week. Looking forward to taking to work tomorrow though.

Mods so far:
-oem edition kidney grilles (got the side gills too but haven't installed yet)
-jl motoring carbon fiber spoiler
-35% pinnacle f1 tint
-next looking for set of 19" wheels--any suggestions? (thinking about matte black avant garde 310 or bbs ch-r)

Sorry for the poor quality iphone pics. Last pic is old car in front and new in back at the dealer.
Just drive bro.... Your paying for it, enjoy it..

Coming from someone who can barely afford to own one, let alone afford to drive it like I can, how can you NOT drive it every chance you get?

If I'm paying an exuberant amount of $$ for a depreciating asset, why rob it of the only return it provides - sheer driving pleasure!
