That would make a killer daily. Congrats and enjoy!
it’s a great car. You got your m4? (M3??) for free. Free is better! The new m5 is like the last one, but everything is extra. It’s like they took the previous one and improved everything and gave it this awesome Awd system, but also allowed it to be rwd, while allowing it to make insane noises. You need the M sport exhaust which is standard on the competition version. It’s the version you want. If I were you I’d sell the free car and get one, totally worth it!

I follow you, although in my mind the dystopian future that all of this is leading up to is likely a bit closer to that of "WALL-E" than Terminator.

For my daily, yes I love the tech. Love the Apple Car Play/Android Auto integration, love satellite navigation, even some of the AutoPilot functionality Tesla/Mercedes/etc have. Granted I am in IT, so I love technology in general and its a huge part of my life.
yup.
weekend car: no radio, no powered seat, no nav, no carpet. Loud, harsh, light, spartan.
DD: all the luxuries that a midsize sedan has. Quiet, soft, heavy, many features.

Well, I put around 7,000 commuter miles a year on my GS-R. So that should answer the question to this thread, haha.

It has a stereo with USB connection. And I've got a windshield mount for my phone (and use Waze a lot).

I'm good, haha.

The current car commercials about people that can't get out of a parking space without help cracks me up.

Good Lordy. Learn to adjust your mirrors correctly and you won’t need all around cameras.
