Question How long will you keep your E46?

How long do you guys plan on keeping your E46? I plan to keep it indefinetely barring accident, or reliability problems other than regular wear and tear.

until i dont want it anymore... id get rid of it now if there was another car worth buying... everything taht every1 is designing has tended to be so ugly... also the e46 330ci is a perfect blend of every little thing i could want in a car.... except maybe some more passenger room... but hey, i coulda had a sedan but the coupe looks nicer IMO
