    The ZHP is my DD for rain. The 550i is the nice day DD.

    Mainly cause the ZHP is not black.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    That is hilarious! I agree, electric cars are akin to watching a silent movie. It's not as invigorating when driving spirited, but the silence is welcomed when commuting in traffic.

    As for the original topic, I think BMW did a great job with the e46 and it makes for a great DD.

    This. 2020 Model S. 0-60 in 1.9 seconds, over 600 mile range, 250+ mph.

    I dig the ZHP though for sure. Test drove a bunch of MB, Audi, etc..... Nothing really compared to e46. As many have said, I just couldn't put my finger on it. Even the e91 we purchased was numb (comparatively), but we couldn't find a clean e46, and we weren't looking for a project.

    Obviously not my cup of tea, but, regardless of what e46 he had:
    -never having to go to a gas station
    -autopilot when you hit a traffic jam and don't feel like driving
    -vastly decreased maintenance requirements
    -MUCH safer

    Just about any E46 makes a good daily, especially if it has a 3.0L and a manual transmission. I don't like electric cars and I don't think I ever will. I enjoy fixing my car and maintaining it... owning something new and maintenance-free is boring IMO. My girlfriend has a Hyundai Elantra that she bought new a few years back and it's a miserable, soulless pile that never needs anything and never does anything beyond taking you from point A to point B.

    I'll keep driving old BMW's every single day for as long as I can. Life's too short to drive a boring car on any day of the week.
