Daily Drive-How many km's/miles

My M3 is my daily drive car. I only use it to travel to and from work, averaging about 65km per day.

I was wondering how far other daily drivers travel each day?


I often wish that I was a courier/delivery driver to enable me more daily drive time.

Have a very short commute, less than 15 min/3 mi. As an aside, is that too short and am I doing more damage on such a shrt commute, not enough time to get properly warmed up and such. The oil temp gets to the middle (210) by the time I get there but not long enough to actually get a reading from the computer in idrive. And yes wish I had more seat time.

I drive to work about 5 miles each way, 3 times a week. That leaves me 4 days off to do my "fun" driving.

19 miles round trip - daily... !! wish it were longer.. the car is already dinged on the side and a rock chip on the windshield but hosestly its a small price to pay for driving such a fantastic car... I plan to rack up the miles over the next 4-5 years and then get the next gen M3

Drive about 20-25 min to get to school and can reach operating temp no problem. Depending on traffic, like 45min-60min to get to work...15miles.

I get so frustrated waiting for the temp to warm up.

How do you get to warm up your M3 with such short travel distances?

100 miles round trip on the world's most beautiful freeway 3-4 times a week. I'm at ~7500 miles after 4.5 months.
