your commute was only 1.5 miles each way. I went from a long a$$ commute, to super short one.

I love cars, and love to drive, but for some reason common sense is kicking in.

Any thoughts?

Well it would only mean your bimmer's warranty would last longer :p A lot of people on this board use their bimmers for sunday cruises and what not, but if you're usin it like a daly driver then thats a question for you to answer. My commute is 6 minutes evryday, but I'm always driving other places as well. I have 8,000 miles on the car and it isn't even half a year old.

I am a car nut, in a year I am sure I will want to get something else. Your right about the warranty and the resale value. I have another daily driver, 2002 4Runner, my girlfriend loves that, so I was thinking of finnaly taking the plunge and getting an E46.

Then take your E46 out on the track on weekends. FLEX its MUSCLES! Its still a fun car regardless youre driving 1 mile or 50 miles a day!

I dont see what the question is. If you want one why wouldn't you? Miles would not be an issue with such a short commute.... Go for it:thumbup:

Just look at it this way, most people put all of their miles driving to work. But with the short drive you will be able to drive more on weekends. My drive is 9 miles a day after 4 years I have only 30k miles. I have driven on long road trips too.

If you need to justify it, move further from work, or find another job :)
