Daily Driver

Who daily drives their M's? If not what's your daily? I'm on the market for a daily as to not continue to increase miles on my E90. I drive about 80 miles total daily to and from work so trying to keep my mileage down.

I drive mine daily with my two kids ages 5 and 7. If I got a second vehicle it would be for utility (4x4, SUV) rather than preservation of my car.

I would park the E90M3 to drive a 911 Turbo (999.1 or newer). No Prius or beater or truck for me. I would consider an X5M.

I daily drive my 2012 E92 but it's usually 10miles a day. Used to daily my prius but my gf needed a new daily so I gave it to her. Over 1 year and never left me stranded.

I don't quite daily my E90, but pretty close...I probably use it for the commute an average of 3 days a week.

I commute through a combined 40 miles of South Florida's absolute worst traffic and drivers, a literal hellscape of maniacs in Audis and Ghiblis clogging the highways like so many Big Mac artifacts obstructing the arteries of an obese, hemorroid-laden truck driver.

Despite less than ideal conditions, my 6MT E90 slicktop handles daily driver duties like a champ. On days with crappy weather or if I need a little extra space I'll drive the E70 X5 35D.

I daily with 4 day a week round trips of 36 miles. Weekends sometimes I go for fun drives in it and sometimes it sits and I take the Audi for biking or skiing or dog stuff. I average about 10k mi/yr in the M3.

I daily my e92 (on or about 25 miles roundtrip) but almost always take my wife's SUV out on weekend activities with the fam bam. Once we move to MD, we're looking at getting an outback.

Blast to drive just adds up on fuel more than anything for me. Ideally I'd like something much better on mpg's to commute. Not to say I still wouldn't drive the M one day a week and on weekends. Plus with winters it would be nice to have something AWD or 4x4. I'd been looking for inexpensive jeep patriots or etc

I spend about $160-200/mo on gas daily driving+fun. Worth it.
