Default Re: E46 M3 Daily Drivers, have you considered another DD?

Yes, E36 M3. Someone crashed into it on the fourteenth day of ownership, so I guess E46 and I were meant to be.

I drive my M3 2 days out of the week to work. Rest of the days, I carpool in her 17 Jetta

This winter I have switched to a plain jane beat up e46 325xi and the difference is staggering. 325xi actually rides relatively smooth and easy to drive. Jump in the M and you remember just how great the car is.

I DDed the M3 for 7 years... bought a 2010 X5 4.8i msport a couple of years ago and have been DDing that. It is pretty good, just really expensive to maintain.

2017 Chevrolet Volt!!

At 35 cents a day to operate (55 mile round trip commute), itís hard to beat the performance and modern features it has.

The m3 on the weekend is truly a joy I hope to always enjoy

35 cents a day? Isn't it a plug in hybrid? My buddy had a C-Max and he was telling me his electricity bill went through the roof after he charged it on a regular basis.

Default E46 M3 Daily Drivers, have you considered another DD?

I love having my M in the garage and my 99 Honda CR-V for my daily beater. Never have to rush anything when working on the M and the crv is reliable, good on gas, and awd.

The volt has it's own generator of sorts.

I charge at night when it cost 7 cents a kWh. I use about 12 kW a day. Sorry so itís 84 cents a day. I use a lot of free charging at work as well.

The first 60 miles are electric. Then it turns into like a Prius or C-Max.

My electric bill has been like $120 a month even during the summer. My house has complete home automation. Saves me a fortune.
