My Ride: 2008 M5
Commuting in my M

Ok, so I may be a little odd here but I actually don't mind sitting in traffic in the morning when I am in my M especially on days like today where roof, windows and windscreen were down on top of not needing a jacket or sweater.

If I were doing this in my 4Runner I would be super irritated.

Anyone else commute in theirs and actually enjoy it?

My Ride: 2002 M3 Coupe
Before I went full time WAH I commuted in mine and it was enjoyable. I mean, you're in an M! It can't be that bad when you love your ride. But that was in AZ, better roads, where the average flow was 15-20mph over posted. I don't think I could handle commuting on these roads with this traffic.

Yeah, anything in the M is fantastice really... I love it! Just something about it that I am happy in it no matter what the situation.

On the other hand, I only commute down 405 from Bothell to Factoria so the roads are absolutely fine just a lot of traffic.

I suppose my general disdain over commuting can be chalked up more to the fact that I haven't commuted any distance further than the hallway to my home office in the past 6 years.

You're not odd, my ///M is my daily. My Titan Crewcab is my garage queen. Last couple mornings left home at 7am top down, no jacket...and it's only May. It's gonna be a great year.
