If I ever get my STi I will be very careful about where I drive it. It will definitely see its fair share of road trips and fun in the rain, but I can't tell you that I will beat the **** out of it on a daily basis. It will be my only car but, that doesn't mean I have to drive it everywhere...I got my roomates car for that... ...I am notorious between my friends for keeping my cars clean. I even still have the sticker that came on the headunit of my RSX, yes its still on and I bought the car a little over a year ago...I know, Iknow...I need help

Mine is going to be my nice car. The dealership gives me a free car to drive back and forth to work, My WRX will be the track car, my fiance's RS/WRX conversion will be the show car. This leaves the STi for general playing around and trips

Probably. I think I'm going to get rid of the Mustang and Volvo daily driver for the STi But it would be fantastic if I could find an old CRX to rock for the daily grind

Just picked up a 95 del Sol to put miles on - just in time for nice weather.

The fact that it gets 35+ MPG is a bonus

My STi will see rain, snow, mud, and hit the track occasionally, but it won't be my daily driver... I just don't like the idea of parking it in the garage at work, and commuting in it.

I will use my 2002 RS as a daily driver.

I voted for neither as I have 4 cars so it is a issue of what car to pick to drive that day. At first I will drive it alot, but must likely use the other for miles. It will be the only EPA legal car when I first get it.

I am planning on dumping my 99 Jeep cherokee Automatic with a 10 second 0-60 time. I call it the beast. The sub is going to be my new beast, in a whole new way. And i plan on driving it every damn day, between classes , to the beach, on the beach, and on trips back to pittsburgh in the summers. oh i want it so bad.

Default Will your STi be your daily ride?

In Michigan I have to store my S2000 4 months a year to avoid pot-holes and salt. I drove my mother-in-law's Prism for the last 4 months...and just got the Honda out of storage. That's why I'm getting it detailed and putting it up for sale next month. I'm looking for an all-year performance car. I'm 6th on my dealer's list in the Detroit area. I'm thinking with Michigan snow I may have to change the summer tires on the STi to all weather tread.

P.S. If anyone's interested in the S2000, it's black & has 20,500 miles...and its on www.autoweb.com.

Regards...Danny-Boy
