If so does it suck mentally and physically having to take it everywhere...?

I hate taking it up hills or to like NYC or JC where there are potholes and stuff.

Especially when I want to be all stealthy and stuff, my N1 doesn't exactly do it for me and the lude SH in general will get looks...

it's not like a ferrari but damn...

I have a 4 Gen (93 Si) with Vtec Swap........Yes it is daily driven.
I got a body kit on mine and after every winter I buy a new front bumper, It's been like that for three years already.......I wish they could make some nice utherane front bumpers for 4th gen...... the only one I know of is WW Big Mouth, but it looks too smiley for me........

PS: the bumper doesn't crack from the snow or anyhting.... it's just that all the roads get fu*ked up after cold seasons, and you get a lot of holes and construction works........that's the joy of driving a car in chicago.. LOL

I have a 97 base and it is my only car. I drive through snow and everything. If it wasn't my only car, I would probably put some more aftermarket equipment on it. The stock RE92's handle terribly in snow. I got RE730's, which is a 3 season tire, so I guess I will have to buy a set of snow tires unfortunately.

I have a 99 base and I live in WI I have to drive it 96 miles to school and back, I just hate the rain and snow and driving behind anyone w/out mud flaps the front end if you look close it peppered w/ stone marks, I wish I could just keep it in the garage. I keep it clean and waxed but the fresh wax doesn't last long w/ all the bugs and crap on the roads

what sucks is having a cv axle break and you have to go without the car for 3 days while the store gets the replacement in..

i've been mudboggin' in my car...heh. i guess it just doesn't bother me to get my car a "little" dirty.

many have ludes and use them daily...hmmm...

it sucks though don't it...always having to worry about scratches, door dings, jealous types.

way I see it I see the point of getting another car but then again I think "when Im gone from this earth, someone else will inheret my car, then most likely they'll drive it to hell and back...so life is too short to baby my car..."

I have a 99 SH, and it's my daily driver.
Mine does ok in winter... but have to be extra careful or I'll need a new bumper easily...
