That's my old subway! I went from yellow line to red line, green line and now the Path. Nothing like ripping up 3rd avenue in 2nd gear in the 60s/80s. The building make a good canyon effect.

That is the exact reason why I am contemplating on trading in our X5 for a Lexus RX. You know there will be a lot of electronic issues with BMW once it hits 80k miles +/-...

Yes.....this car was one of my favorite BMWs. Classic late 90's early 00's good looking BMW with that nice V8 sound.

Epic. Favorite truck.


My M3 is my only car. I'm single and live alone and have one parking spot in LA, so it'd be hard for me to have or need another car.

If I could store a second car, I'd keep the M3 for a daily and get a 993 C2S wide MT for a weekend car. I have a .8 mile commute to the office so I definitely don't need a commuter car.

My daily driver is a ML430 which is kinda dumb because it's also a V8...lol But, it's an automatic which is great in Bay Area traffic!

I keep my cars in Jersey City so I don't have to fight traffic just to get out of the city. 10 min PATH ride out of WTC to Exchange, and I'm on the NJ Turnpike in under 30 min. On a Fri, it would take a minimum of an hour just to get from my NYC garage to the other side of the tunnel. Screw that.

The M3 is on its way, I kept the 04 Accord. I heard having a beater + M3 lowers insurance ? I am thinking of using the honda for any drive under 5 miles and M3 otherwise.

Sure, they'll knock off a bit from the M's insurance, but they more than make up for it in insurance for the beater. At best, you break even.

I kind of hoped for an asnwer like that to sell the honda but I cannot (yet) picture grocery shopping with the M3. Will have to test in practice.

My insurance went down a couple hundred dollars a year when I added an older used car to my policy. Prior to that, the M3 was my daily driver.

Now I have a 2004 Camry V6. 200k miles and still runs like brand new! The car requires little maintenance, parts are dirt cheap and it just keeps on going. Love how reliable Japanese cars are.

To liven things up, I put in KYB sport struts, polyurethane bushings and high performance tires. Definitely increases the feedback in an otherwise very boring car. Hanging corners is fun as well... most people don't expect you to be flying in an stock-looking Camry.

Bugatti Veyron SS. Besides the poor MPG's, it's a comfy and quick enough car that just gets me from A to B.

I have the exact same insurance configuration, 04 Accord and 13 M3 (albeit in FL). The M3 actually costs -less- to insure for liability than the Accord -- Of course the M3 costs more for Comp/Coll due to its value. Having 2 cars (any 2 cars) does lower the cost of insurance for both. I believe if I were to remove the Accord from the insurance, the M3's 6-month cost would increase by about $100.

I'm with Geico and I've got more or less 'gold-plated' insurance - $500k/$1m coverage on both cars (and UM) in case I somehow cause a pileup -- along with $250k PD, 80% PIP + 20% Additional PIP -- $10k. Rental coverage, $250/$250 ded. on the M3 and $0/$100 ded. on the Accord. Total insurance cost is only about $950 for 6-months on both.

2001 Subaru forester. Best winter beater ever. 3ft snow drifts wouldn't even slow it down (also they're really fun to hit at 40mph).

I'm off the grove street path, can see the holland from my rooftop. I'm the guy that drives the M into the city most weekends!

Yes completely different V8 sound but I love it. It's funny you just made me think about having two V8s when the world is downsizing lol
