What's your daily driver/beater?

Planning to get an M4 sometime in the near future but I'm most likely going to get a daily driver/beater before getting the M4. Just curious to see what everyones DD/beater is on here?

And please don't say DD the M4. Yes I know you can DD the M3/4 and I think that's great, I did it myself with my E92 M3 but I live in the city and have had to deal with tire blowouts, bent wheels, scuffs, scrapes, curb rash, broken side mirrors, people throwing up on the car, etc and I don't want to deal with it again with the M4. I also drive around quite a bit for work, sometimes up to 100 miles a day, so keeping the miles low would be an added advantage.

I have an xterra that drives over anything and is a monster in the snow. Unfortunately, it got rear ended the other day... I'm hoping to get it fixed before the crap weather starts to roll in. Not trying to drive the M4 in the snow on summer tires.

Yup, tell us all about the epic cry you let out this week while crashing the Nissan! And then tell us how manly your dance routine was when you realized you weren't in the M.

Haha, oh I need a life if I can remember that all still

First of all... I wasn't the crasher. I was the "crashee"!!! Secondly, I think everybody here can understand the relief I felt when I realized I grabbed the right keys when leaving the house. And yes, you need a life. But look who's talking.

My DD is my F80. It's a comfortable mid-size sedan that goes fast. Don't see why it wouldn't be a DD for most people.

Kind of a useless poll, if people can't say that their F8X is their daily driver.

Unfortunately I commute 100 miles a day with a Great Dane in the car for 80 miles of them. The BMW would would be ripped apart after 1 day.

I agree it's a capable DD. I just don't want it to be beat to hell in 3 years.

Dude lets have a social Friday... 7 days . Or so. Fuck. I really need to get away now, but till next weekend I have absolutely nothing, and that's not helping.

Oh, and I'm now driving the Q7. Just kill me faster.
