Only had my 325 for a couple months but it's been my daily. Sure beats the '66 mustang I've been driving daily for 4 years! Now that's my weekend project/car.

Daily driver here in London we have terrible roads,12 miles of speed bumps every day,fuel use is irrelevant as it beats standing for a bus,and its still cheaper and quicker.

Daily my E46 330i, E46 M3 track car. Solid cars, decent mpg (28-29 mpg avg light footing), perfect for California roads . Invested too much into the 330i that theres no point in selling. Just enjoying the car as much as i can. 179k miles and climbing.

Just keeps on going.

We have a 02-E46 with now 220K Been in NE all its life. Starting to show rust. But we always get a surprise when people find out its 13 yrs old. Cleaning and TLC always make a difference. Mentally too!

I have another newer car but I drive the e46 every nice day which seems to be most of the time lately.
If it's rainy I prefer the '08 Impreza.
