How often do you drive your car?

My 330i is my daily driver. What sucks is I drive it about 65 miles a day just for work. Then I drive it about another 200 miles over the weekend. Enjoy every minute of it though!

My current car is a daily driver as its my only car right now. I put about 22k miles every year on every car that I had and this one is no exclusion whether its 2 feet of snow outside or over 100 degrees.

DD'd my 325xi since the day I picked it up, until the day I got my E90 M3. I'll be switching back to the E46 in the next few weeks and park the M until the frost thaws.

All day everyday. Since I put 155k miles on it, it's not only my DD but now my project car. Put too much money and time into upkeeping it, so I cannot let it go.

I have never driven my 6 year old car because I want to keep it's value intact.

Lol not for this reason. I just want something more reliable to use than the E46.
