So the plan with my Z4MC is to pay it off in the next few months and put it in the garage for weekends and the occasional track day (4-5 times a year) and replace it with a daily driver. However...

I saw a really nice 2002tii over the weekend and now I'm thinking I want one. This would split daily driving with the Z.

Talk me down from the ledge (or talk me into it)?

Everyone needs a 2002 in their stable!

Every bimmer head needs a 2002, but do you want a 40-year old car as a daily driver? Keep the Z4 for daily and track use. Do you know 2002s? Look for rust. A solid body is top priority. Mechanical issues are more easily resolved. Check out bmw2002faq.com then jump off the ledge into a 2002.

The car would probably be driven 3-4 days a week, probably 18 miles a day at most. I don't know 2002's specifically, but I do know where to look for the tinworm.

I went to take a look at one at Flemings in Rockville today (yeah, I know). Won't do that again.
