I can’t speak much for driving it. Think I’ve driven it 3 times in the 11 months of ownership. One of those was the test drive lol.

I do all of my own work on my car but I would have to say that driving it is more enjoyable. I love how great it feels to do everything myself but sometimes, these M3's are too needy LOL.

Driving it by far. Working on it can be semi enjoyable if things go to plan and I'm not rushed for time. But inevitably there's always at least one step that delays the whole project.

Driving it for sure, but tinkering on small stuff is also enjoyable.

There always is.

I think I go through phases. Sometimes I just was to work on the car rather than drive it. I also know that one makes me appreciate to other. This is a car I invest priceless time into and to drive it is just wonderful. I won't be driving mine for a while though. The engine blew and I haven't had funds to work on it lately, just drive it. Now I'm itching to do some repairs.
