Not a daily as such but neither is it a garage ornament or investment.
Gets used regularly for normal stuff as well as sunny weekend drives.
Current: 130i & 1M

Good to know. I daily drive mine, although have only had it for 5 months. Some people think i'm crazy putting miles on it which got me thinking. I never bought it as an investment or garage queen. its up there with my lotus 111r as one of the best cars I've owned. Have had an offer from a dealer when it when in for service. The used prices are still pretty crazy.

Changed an Exige V6 for my 1M.
Honestly prefer the 1M, almost as much fun when driving enthusiastically but more useable so I actually use it an awful lot (maybe more than I should?)

Hahaha, the 1m delivery vehicle! Even better!
Have to say your car is stunning. Did look at that one, but budget wouldn’t stretch that far! Then thought about an M2 but driving 1m and m2 back to back...no contest
