220 miles a day commuting? I hope they are paying you well because you're giving up at least 3.5 hours of your time in driving. That's a 30.5% hourly pay decrease (!!!) assuming your work day is 8 hours long. Have you considered moving?
But yeah, highly modified cars are a pain in the ass and lose their appeal quickly. Sometimes I long for a stage two WRX/STi again.
