Modified E46 M3 and Modified E86 Z4MC.

These are just BMW's in reality and you can be gone from this Earth tomorrow so why not drive it like you stole it?

I've never understood the people who don't daily drive their 3-series or M3s, as these cars were made to compromise practicality and performance. If you're not going to daily drive it, why not get a Z4 or Porsche?

Being single, I don't need anything very practical, so I daily drive a BMW Z3 coupe, with a Z4 M Coupe as my nice weather/weekend driver.

I have a 2006 Honda CR-V as my daily driver, and the 128i convertible will be my weekend fun car. The 128 will never be used as a daily driver unless I want it to look like a POS in a year. I work in the city and have to parallel park every day, and my Honda's been hit an uncountable number of times by people that don't know how to parallel park and smash into it. If I worked somewhere that had a parking lot, I might drive it more often, but there's no way I'm subjecting my BMW to idiot drivers.

Used to have one of those but sedan with a BT. From day one it wasn't reliable. I feel like buying a wagon...I couldn't back then I was a kid. Nice car I love it. An other advantage of owning an A4 Avant is that no kids buy them. Sadly B6 are affordable and are being riced out nowadays.

I used to have an infiniti G20 6 speed with no aircon. Sold it, so now the M Roadster is my only car, and I like it that way. I'd like to pick up a volvo p1800es or a saab 9-5 aero wagon in a couple of years for hauling shit around

Nice... I do the switch from M3 to Z4M. Right now the Z4M has a 6 month stint, then the M3 gets the Winter months stint. lol

I'd love to drive a shoe around daily...If I were single and not a father of 2 your garage is how I'd do it....or maybe an e46 m3 vert for the daily grind and a GT3 for the weekend, even a porsche spyder will do actually...

Couldn't agree more...my daily drive is my 135i. I work from home but commute to the airport (2x/mo) with a smile on my face. I would get a nice 2008 Cayman S for the weekend if i drove a junker during the week.
