Just wondering whether people here are driving their BMWs in college or leaving them at home...I'm a little hesitant about bringing my M3 to school, especially with the New England winters. And I'll end up being the only one with a M3 in my school. While I live off campus, I still experienced haters/drunk college student even with my 97 Eclipse (one day I found FOOTPRINTS on the HOOD of my car...apparently someone walked over my car. :banghead: )

I'm thinking of driving my Eclipse in college, rather than sell it, but that'd be undermining the point of getting a BMW in the first place...

How do you guys manage your cars in college?

do yourself a favor and take the eclipse to school.....something is bound to happen to the M when some drunk @sshole walks by it

If youre going to a baller school, bring your car, you'll fit right in. If youre going to a state school forget it.

i drive mine to wentworth everyday...when the snow hits though, i take the silverado...it's not worth driving in the snow with my car, nevermind an m3. but as long as you got a good place to park, i don't see why you wouldn't want to drive in everyday

I agree, I brought my expedition and left my car at home. I only bring it occasionally on the weekends when I go out.

I would suggest not bringing it up, i brought mine up for a month or so, and it got f*cked up! Just like dings on the doors and stuff, just stick with the eclips!

I've never had any problems. I drive to school for class, then leave. I don't live there or talk to anyone. I don't know them and they don't know me. I pretty much have the nicest car at school and keep to myself. But I'm 26 so it's just as easy for them to think I'm a professor.

I go to a State school...so it'll be even worse...I think I'll just bring up the M for a month or two during spring time...This sucks...that means I can't pimp it for too long...lol

i got to a state school as well. i lve off capus at the fraternity house and park in the garage that we have here. i drive to campus and park in a lot everyday..i try to keep away from other cars but sometimes it is impossible...ther are not many "nice" cars on my campus but i have not had a probelm with haters ever, either on campus or off campus.. take it to school for the warm months, drive the beater in the cold months and have the best of both worlds!

In Boston, yes, especially Boston Univ, there are tons of expensive cars. Unfortunately I'm going to school in UMass Amherst (western Mass...middle of nowhere), and my folks moved outa Boston so I can't even keep my car in Boston and use it on the weekends...
