Default Re: Hit a deer with my DD this moring.

I did not suggest the Golf R would replace the M3 as a track car. It's main purpose would be DD. However, there are times when one signs up for a HPDR that turns out to be a wet day, and the R would be more capable on those conditions and kind of fun to use for that as well.

Overall, I agree with the consensus of keeping two cars. I know it's less of a compromise.

E46M + some sort of DD = really, really good setup. At least take the M2 for a spin just so you have as much information now as possible. Since it's in your mind, I'd do that test drive ASAP.

If the M2 really blows you away and fits you perfectly, go for it. Anything less than the M2 being a 10/10, keep the E46 and find a new DD! Ultimately, what happened to your DD is part of the reason why you want a DD in the first place...your E46 can serve as a great backup for the time being and keeps you out of rental car hell (if you're concerned about such a thing), plus the E46 wasn't the one that got hit! If you have just M2, it'll soak up miles quickly and be subject to the same routine traffic dangers as 'throw-away' DD.

Excellent points.

In the meanwhile the estimate came in and the damage is the the $8k range, with the cars value at about $15-$16k, so the insurance will most likely want it fixed. Guess no new car for me, unless I finagle a deal, trying to sell it as is for around $7-$8k, which is probably not easy.

I feel totally out of line with everyone here but why not DD the M3? I DD 1000 miles a week in mine. Starts almost every time

Simple, because if it is set up for track it sucks as a DD.

Initially I thought you were right, as the estimate came in at ~$7500. They since tore the car down and found some more parts that got damaged, and it's now up to $9k. I think it is getting close now. I know at some point 60-80% they will write it off as a loss, and we are right at the bottom of that.
