Even I am kind of surprised that after months and months of deliberating over what car to buy as a commuter I have come up with...
BMW 3-series! I'm looking at the 318 to be specific.
Roy? A Beemer? Roy driving a BEEMER???? I know I know but it actually makes sense. I've always held VW as my favorite and have a soft spot in my heart for the few-and-far-between eurovehicles that have been in my life so... why not? The 318 gets 32 miles per gallon on the highway so makes a nice commuter that is relatively safe and will make a great weekend family car too. And 1995-1998 vintage 318's are quite affordable as well.
Now to find one. That's turning out to be the more difficult part. But hopefully I'll be posting a pic of my new ride in the next couple of weeks.
But then again a couple of weeks is usually all it takes for me to change my mind again...
