Just love it! Enjoy it, and look for reasons to drive it.

Just enjoy it, but it's just another car.

Nice car but would rather have something else.

I could care less, the only reason I am in this club is to make sure the wheels don't fall off!

Well I be the OCD vote. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Guess I need to make it OCMD. I spend entirely too much time cleaning it, looking for parts to make it cooler, spending more money and time on it than on my wife (bad thing by the way). I am hoping that it passes just a little.. well until I find my black special with two tone interior:)

I dont know man i never really cared for them too much, i was always into the C's, but i was starting to get desperate after selling my expedition, i was looking for a lincoln ls, but couldnt find any that werent busted, i was looking through everything in my price range and this car came up, i started to look at it, and figured what the hell might as well go look at it. once i saw it in person and test drove it, i fell in love with it, now i am slowly finding how how fun they are, after looking around this site i am starting to appreciate the car more and more. ill let you know in about a week or so :lol:

I'm in the 2nd category: Drive=Love.
I had a poll very similar to this that I ran several years ago---most votes were at or near the top category.

Dale: Here's a pic of the interior you've been drooling over :drool

Steve,you have that in high resolution? I would make that my desktop man! I already have saved every picture of your car.. I just don't know how to make an M any cooler.. you nailed it! I would however, even as much as I love the black exterior, they should have made a red special! right FireM?

I used only a 3mpxl camera for that pic. At some point I'll take an 8mpxl pic.

I completely washed the car, had an urge while driving through the mountains to check out a dirt road and washed it again the same day..I am M sick in the head I tell ya!

don't feel bad, Dale. There are lots of M addicts on this board. Wives can be replaced. (j/k) Just remember---one day at a time.

Need something higher. You put thinking, what about totally redoing? I like the two tone special interior also, just like the light taupe with the California walnut trim just a little more. Just remember to tell your wife/girl friend, how great they are too.

I wouldn't call myself OCD (I sometimes go weeks between washes, especially now that I have no hose access), but I do (many times) look back as I walk away and admire Luna.

I am also aware of the concept of o'dark thirty... and catching 40 winks between then and sun-up in the driver's seat. ;)

Weeks without washing it? And I thought you were my friend!:) I have not had the opportunity to fall asleep at a rest area on a long drive yet. Longest for me in the M is about 6 hours.. and I was sad when I got there cause the trip ended!!!

I was referring to Carlisle before... but the long I've spent in the pilot's seat is around 13-14 hours. 11 hour drive from Ohio to NJ, with a few hours snoozing in a rest stop, seat fully reclined and steering wheel fully up.
