Thumbs up Work E?

Does anyone use their E as their work vehicle? I have used my 2004 E as my mobile veterinary vehicle for the last 5 years. Reliable at 176,000+ km and counting. I do all my own routine maintenance.

Wow a mobile vet office! Cool, I wish you lived around here:)

I don't use my E as a mobile office, but it does carry my equipment and every Friday I have to clean out all the dirt. If it was anything other than an E, I would probably just give up.

I drive my 07 E for work, driving all over KY. I've got 160,000 miles so far.

I use my 2007 as a work vehicle. I have an IT company and normally carry all my tools along with various other items. The element is the best little big vehicle I have ever used. I can get a ton of equipment in the back if I need it. The next step is to get a rack if i need to carry ladders etc.

I don't use it as a professional work vehicle, as such, but I do a ton of construction, music, etc. and it rides my stuff around to tons of places. I couldn't be happier with it :D

I used mine as a volunteer EMT/firefighter and always wondered if I could use the fold flat seats on the passenger side with a backboard to transport a pt.:)

Too short. You have just over 5 ft. from the back gate to the back of the front seats. Unless you live in Midget Land :rolleyes:

I inspect, repair, paint, and maintain fire hydrants. The E is a great vehicle for this job. Most of my equipment, wrenches, gauges, and such get wet most of the time. No biggie for the E!
