Why not put the miles on the BMW, it is built for it, more so than plodding around the block.

Exactly. Also, people need to realize that a car with a large amount of highway miles is in many cases suffering from less wear than a car with much lower mileage that has all city miles. I think cars need a time meter like a tractor to go along with the odometer to give us a more complete story behind the cars usage.
