The Z gets DD duties from April to November, unless I need the room. Otherwise, I have a 2017 base model Legacy. It's a nice car, but absolutely lifeless to drive. Thankfully the lease is up in June.

Yep. It's the only car I own. 90k on the clock, 20k of which are mine. Had it two years now.

My Z is only a weekend car and is only driven in good weather. My daily beater is a 2012 Mazda CX-7 i-Touring. I'm the original owner and have put over 188,000 miles on it.

I daily the Z but I am looking to see what a 2nd car would run to have the Z be a 3x/wk driver as well as having a 2nd/daily that can be used during bad weather as well - leaning or WANTING an Golf R or a Civic Type R.

But the cost might push me towards getting a 2nd vehicle that is a SUV or maybe a Mini Cooper S for the cheap - although if it is cheap i feel that I’ll have to add $$ on top of it to keep it running etc......decisions decisions

Ive taken the roadster to costco before. Only bought a package of salmon and a 2x 2.5 gallon water. Had to open the box of water and split them up to fit in the trunk... and the package of salmon had to sit on the GF's lap..

There's a really good joke in there... but I'll refrain.

In this order for me: 2012 Titan SV crew, 2017 Subie crosstrek, 2004 Audi S4 cabrio, then the Z when the mood hits, or the weather is right. (bought the cabrio for her, so I try to stay out of it! )

I'm honestly surprised by the amount of people that DD these, and not always down south.

I just rolled over 40k on mine coming back from atlanta.
That was a miserable drive btw - pouring down rain and foggy as soon as i hit the mountains for the last ~250 miles.

Every single day. I had a '03 F150 and dreaded the drive home just about everyday. After the Z came around I completely look forward to the drive home and once you've driven these babies daily it's hard not to have the power and energy at your fingertips. I LOVE everything about the 370 and don't know if I'll ever be able to go onto something else.

I drive a 2005 Nissan Altima from November until roughly mid~April.
The winters in Chicago are pretty rough.
