ultimate driving machine

i feel how you guys feel on driving our e46's.in the past before i had my e46 my mom would ask me to get something from the store, i'd be like i'm too lazy but now i'd get up in a second and cruise arnd before i get home, but sometimes i forget what i was supposed to bring back home! hehe.

My Ride: Has TWO Turbos!!!

^^^^^ couldn't agree more, my 02 mustang GT was a lot of fun to drive when I was in the mood, but there were days where I just didn't want to even think of driving that beast. but the E46 makes me smile everytime I drive it. I don't think there's a day that goes by that I don't look down and see that roundel on the steering wheel and want to cry I'm so happy/excited/filled with positive feelings!!!

yea ^^^ so many compliments a lot of ppl really like these cars, sad thing is so many more could have em but they all think they're more expensive than they are, like ppl think my car is $40k minimum, and I'm like no I paid $25k, with a warranty and only 20k miles and they're jaws drop as they get into their $25k ford 500 or what have you, I think a lot of folks are still intimidated by the german brands, like the way the dealers used to be, and some still are, well snooty and stuck up

My Ride: ist mein auto
Send a message via AIM to chuckthis
I just love driving my car period. I get such a stupid grin when I start it and my wife always makes fun of me. But, whether it's to the store, work, the autobahn (especially the autobahn) I just love driving it. It's going to be a shame when I move back to the States and their speed limits.

Chuck, your ride just looks so damn elegant man! Styling.

I also just get a thrill of how smooth and efficiently my 330D does things. Its just such a pleasure to drive.

I drive my Chevy all the time (daily) .. so when I get home and get bored, if the weather is nice, I will take the M to stretch its legs for a bit..

We usually take my car, but every so often I'll drive the wifes Touring for the hell of it

Same here. Although its approx 1.30EUR/Litre here now, I always take the longest ways home, or the fastest (Autobahn = 240km/h )

For me there is nothing more relaxing than sitting in my bimmer and just drive... anywhere, no care, just go with the flow and enjoy the beauty and subtleness of the car...
