What's the car you've owned the longest and how long did you own it for ??

For me, it's my current E46.

I drove her off the Ferman BMW dealership lot in Palm Harbor, FL back in August 2002.

21 years and 197,xxx miles later, she's still running like a top and I still enjoy rowing through the gears.

It would be nice to upgrade to a faster car, but I'd probably end up with more speeding violations, lol.

For me, it's either the truck (2007) or the E30 M3 (2008) depending on how you count it. The truck was originally a company truck, so not technically in my name until 2014 or so.

K bought the Turbo in '99.

9 years for a Honda Accord EX Hatchback. Circa: 1984 or 85, I think.

Otherwise, 7 seems to be the second longest stretch (E70 X5). And five is my usual and customary.

I love that you still have your 2002 E46. Wonderful era.

I think our current 4runner is the longest at 6 years. Longest daily driver car is a bit more challenging

My longest was the Porsche 991.1 at 9 1/2 years with the second going to the R8 for a drop over 4 years though our Audi Q7 is just about to pass the R8 ...

I'm pretty sure its my 1er. Bought it on 6/14/2014, so going on 9 yrs +. I love it and don't see a time when I'll ever get rid of it.

Our 2020 X5 - will be 4 years in November. Not that long compared to rest of the group but Iíve leased most of prior cars so in-and-out every 24 to 36 mos.

Very happy with it too - has been most reliable car Iíve ever owned and excellent all-around SUV.
