My 2012 F30 has 63k miles on it and I still love driving it everyday. In fact, just recently (over the past 500 miles or so), I have noticed that it has become much smoother than before. Something has changed (for the better) and I'm not sure what/why because all I have done is regular maintenance. I did switch to Mobil 1 for the last two oil changes so I wonder if that did anything. Or whether it has just reached a point where everything in the engine/drivetrain is properly set in. Regardless, I enjoy it even more now!

Get a company car and try to drive the Porsche on as many sunny days as possible, so the BMW usually collects dust...

Very much enjoying it. I had a chance to drive it through the Rockies this summer when the car was new. Great way to get acquainted.

I bought my 2014 F32 three months ago on May 20th, and I've already put 8,000 miles on it. I drive an average of 2500+ miles per month and over 30k per year. With all that time spent in the car, I gotta drive something I love!!

You've failed to see the point. I don't drive my car as much because of my job, I'm always gone for weeks sometimes months and when I'm home I mostly drive my SUV to work because it's more practical when I'm hauling 2-3 bags of training gear. I could sell it but I chose not to because I like the car and would like to keep it for years to come.

Yes, it's a great car and as mentioned above, it's a pleasure getting into on a daily basis. Few things could be improved but these are minor things such as "options that should be standard" along with the HVAC system; I'm still pissed off about the alarm or lack thereof! I could swear I checked ALL the boxes in that category but oops, I guess I forgot to check the alarm box when ordering!? Highest price car I have ever had without one but C'est la vie. (52k MSRP and no alarm)

You in the city or burbs?

Unrelated to the question above, there is a blacked out lowered 328/F30 and he cuts people off daily at the lights let alone weaving in and out of traffic in a no passing zone. I know the "Philly driving tricks" quite well but when you're in the burbs, you don't pull that shyte as he's going to kill someone one day I can confirm this man LOVES HIS BIMMER but is also a VERY shitty driver losing his back end a lot.

BLASPHEMY. It doesn't matter how many cars you have, or how long your commute to work is, or what's "practical." You MUST drive 10 laps around your city A DAY otherwise you are NOT A TRUE CAR ENTHUSIAST. These cars were meant to be DRIVEN. NOBODY should buy things to enjoy them the way they want. You should buy them to RUN THEM INTO THE GROUND AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.



these threads never get old.
