M3 Engineered for Magic Everyday (Post Your Pics)

I had almost but forgotten how well the M3 actually does daily driver duties such as all-weather commuting, hauling groceries equipment etc. I actually started using the M3 again for daily driving duties and have found it to be quite enjoyable and capable.

Taking a page from Porsche's Everyday campaign...I actually think the M3 is better than Porsche at doing this "Everyday" thing.

Post your own pictures on this thread of your M3 doing its daily driver thing (hauling children, adults, dogs, equipment; snow plow etc).

Here are pics of my M3 on a Costco run hauling 35lbs of dog food, 36 bottle flat of water, and other misc groceries. Also a second picture of the M3 hauling a hand truck that for a buddy of mine that was actually too big to fit in the backseat of his E90 335i but fit just find with the rear seats folded down in my car. Another of the M3 getting dirty off-road on the way to Garrison Bros Distillery and participating at a Houston trackday!

Truly the M3 is engineered for magic everyday.

Groceries and a brand new ladder are sissy stuff. I haul lumber so long I have to redtag it since it sticks out of the trunk, bags of tools, loads of trash, shelving, etc., in my E90M3.

M3 is definitely a more practical car than a 911. But the 997 (and certainly 991 as well) are better than most would imagine. That said, I use my M3 more for everyday activities than my 911. To me (coming from 911s and a 350Z before that) my E92 seems HUGE!

I use the OEM rear seat cover and it is epic. It's pretty thick so he doesn't seem to mind laying out.

P/N 52300416248 for the E92
$260ish at Tischer BMW.

Just AB Hwy 1A near Canmore actually. Though I am planning to head up that way this summer, possibly heading down to Washington as well!

I ordered my E90 M3 without considering that the backseat would not be folding. It came with folding seats and I'm happy. Not sure about US, but I think all the cars in Canada come with folding back seats ... someone can prove me otherwise.

Nice, that drive looks like so much fun. I did a portion of that drive from Kenowla south when I was driving back to Spokane from near the athabasca glacier (went via Golden and Revelstoke). Wanted to take the northern route through Jasper but didn't have the time. Such a nice drive though.
