Default Lessons from Daily Driving

What are some lessons you've learned from years of daily driving your car, that you think should be put out there so that other enthusiast can benefit?

Did some parts seem like a good idea, even for the long run, but ended up being a pain or not worth it after a few years?

Was there a different path you would have taken in making modification, perhaps done "this" in stead of "that" first?

Has daily driving a modified (or even stock sports car) shaped your perspective of car ownership and what a good street car should be?


Those are just a few idea I want to know from you guys that have driven a modified Subaru... or any other performance street car as a daily driver over a number of years.

What's it like now that the honeymoon is over, and these parts and cars have gone through the wringer?


I want to start by saying I'm not best fit to contribute a whole lot to this thread. The longest I've owned a car that I've driven just about every day is 2 years. That was a Nissan 240SX.

The biggest thing I learned were, a) feel is more important than any superlative could ever measure and b) when it comes to suspension, stiffer isn't really better.
