Who will be using the 4C as a daily driver?

And if you not buying it as a daily.. For what will you be using the 4C?

I will. Can't imagine myself driving something else when my 4C arrives.

Just doing the same old daily routine: school, home, etc. I also plan to go on vacations within the country and abandon domestic flights altogether

You have many beautiful cars, I don't think you will step into a supremely lesser car during the weekdays

Not sure yet. It will probably be a daily drive once in a while but mostly weekends and more importantly track days...

Friday commute and anywhere it's just myself or myself and the wife. Giulietta for Monday to Thursday and stuff with the kids.

Don't think I could keep up with the 4,500 mile service interval using it for the commute every day.

4C LE

In order to use it as a daily driver I would have to modify my route to work (speed bumps and no winding roads). The reconnaissance starts now.

I'm keeping the Giulietta for the everyday convenience factor. The GQV has been a very Reliable car, there's no way I'm letting her go.
The 4C will be for the weekends.

VW CC 3.6

Daily car

I was so happy starting my 156GTA every day and listening to the faboulous 3,2 V6 years ago. After beeing disapointed with the 159 i want to have a daily smile every morning. So i will give back my VW CC 3,6 with al its comfort and 4wheel drive to enter the 4C as often as possible. Although it is probable to look funny sometimes doing this.

What do you think David?
