My DD is a 2000 Maxima GLE with 191K on the clock. It kicks azz. The commute to and from work is 50+ miles. The 09 Z06 is used on ocassion for the commute and believe me when I say it's hard to exercise restraint.

Must be a tough route if you need to wear a helmet on your commute

My Vette's also got daily driven like that but on a real track, not in a parking lot...

I was a Service Advisor for years, I am a Finance Manager now. It's not a company car it's my car they just gave me a great deal since I am an employee.

Yes it's hard to exercise restraint when trying to drive the GS everyday, and watching the gas needle go to empty very quickly was getting old real quick. I will still drive the GS to work maybe twice a week though.

Nice choice on the DD.

Having owned a number of Acuras over the years I think they are one of the most under rated cars in America. Similar to the Corvette in one respect, lots of bang for the buck. Add the Honda quality and they are hard to beat.

I personally have to have a DD here in wintery Iowa but even if I was in a state such as Florida, Texas, California, etc. I would still have a car/truck that I could just use for all those odd errands that come up that I would not want to subject the Corvette to.

BTW: I'm leaning towards the BBS wheels but you can not go wrong with either.

Yeah alot of people under rate the Acura but untill you have driven one or owned one most people don't have a clue. Acura has always had a soft spot in my heart. It really is a great car for a daily driver. Also the Acura does have alot of features the Vette does not have interior wise.

I think the BBS's are going to be the winner...

Ahh got it, I worked internet sales for three years at Chevy, Buick, Cadillac and Saab. Got out of it when the $#it hit the fan. I can't lie, I do miss the business . Good luck with your new position and congrats on the new rides
