My 20 year old 100bhp/litre m3 gets used every day and does around 15,000 miles a year. Definitely not a pristine garage queen, but then it was cheap when I bought it and is now not worth much because of how many miles it's done so may as well carry on using and enjoying it every day.

That sounds like a well used car, do you think you lose some of the enjoyment when its a daily opposed to weekend hack/toy for shows meets etc?

Yes their are a good few high miler M3's on the go know show how good they are

my ST will probably do less than 2000 miles this year! last year it did just over 500 but now I've got it insured again I might see more like 1000-2000 hopefully and enjoy it a bit more for what it is, obviously this is a weekend toy

my new daily I've just bought, a Seat Leon Technology, will probably see around 15k

The Westfield is currently on target to do 3k in its first year with me - not too bad for a car with no screen or weather protection - it had done 9.5k in its first 13 years including two trips to the Ring and two to Le Mans

9.5k in 13 years I see why you bought it know hardly run in, 3k a year for a car like that I would say is good

Up until a few years ago I averaged 7 - 8k per annum in the Morgan... the past few years it's dropped to 3 - 4k, mainly with a Southern France road trip each year.

And I've only had the hood up twice in 15 years

My daily car will be doing about 20K + this year. My weekend car usually gets upto 10K a year. The wifes car will do about 5 - 7k but her trips are short. Iv clocked up just over 10K in 6 months on the daily.
