lol Yes.

That will be the case in January when the eGolf is returned. Don't wanna call my wife lazy, but let's just say the 100' walk to the back garage (especially with adverse weather) is enough to dissuade her from using a car in the back garage. Since she probably should try to use the Miata as much as possible to leave parked at the train station, it will go in the attached garage and the M3 will be in the back.

Also, there is the very real issue that my attached garage is very shallow. The LR4 (a short SUV for it's size) barely fits in the "large" spot, and the smaller spot has been used by the MCS and eGolf. I could remove everything form that spot and barely fit the M3, but we are better off with the much smaller and older Miata living there.

Plus, the M3 will live large by itself in the back garage.

They really liked the trip and have a big attachment to the car now. I might have a tough time selling it years down the road.

Nice!

It's so hard to get good colors when you shop used like me. I like the red/orange more than I thought I would.

The LR4 (mostly) or the Miata.

I'll drive the M3 (mostly) or the Miata. Who drives the Miata (if at all) is dependent on children drop-off/pick-up.

In the winter, the plan is to drive the M3 on dry, cold days. On gross but not stormy days, I'll drive the Miata. On miserable days, I'll drop off the wife at the train and continue on to work on the LR4.
