A couple weeks ago I picked up a 2009 Honda Fit Sport. I got a killer deal on it, much better mpg than the BMW , and allows my E92 to rest in the garage over this winter for me to order and install a bunch of parts before spring time , with the ultimate goal of upgraded twins/single turbo over next winter 2020-2021

Actually, yes I am. If you saw a Techno Violet coupe with LTW wheels and no spoiler, then that's me. Don't think I've seen another TV one around!

I have only seen one. I live in Landrum/Tyron territory, but work almost in Greer. So I get to see the parade of BMW's each morning in on the way to work when their shift is getting ready to start.

Actually have a vendor who gave me a pass to a "Track Day" at BMW coming up in a few weeks.

But beautiful car man. My wife must have thought I was looking at another woman when I seen it as she was like....what do you keep looking at!

Haha that's pretty funny because then it must have been me for sure. I work in Greer. I'll definitely keep an eye out for you! Not too many modified 1ers around here either.

Yeah....I haven't seen many either. Mine's only the 128i.....but I was looking for a dependable daily as I have the Corvette for the weekend. But I plan to upgrade it this summer for probably a C7Z or at least GS.

Looking back at it, I bet an older (2008 or so) M3 would have been fun as a DD. I used to have an E46 M3 and it was a blast.

The contrast in driving characteristics between the two make sure I never get bored!

I daily my m5...only time I would garage queen a car would be for investment reasons. If it's not gaining 10% a year drive that thing like you stole it and enjoy the money spent! Life's too short not to enjoy the toys we have. I used to daily a corolla and constantly would just be pissed I wasn't driving my "fun car" so now everyday I am driving my fun car and loving it!
