Man I drive my car everydamn day except for the summer when I am out of town ,, AND if I am not doing anything to it like modifing it .

Some people tell me its not a daily driver I laught at there face and tell em its better than a damn porche to drive + you have LOADS of storage space I think it stores more or equal to a Luxuary Sedan, eg E55, BMW 540, and Lexus GS300.

Special occasions are everytime I get on the road (aren't they?), at least two to three times a day.......... in fact, I can't rememebr thelast time where I wasn't in a Skyline whilst on the road. The only other vehicle I have driven, or been a passenger in, in the past 6 months (at least) was a 4 wheel motorbike.

Turning that round, since I've been looking for Skylines, I've noticed just how few there seem to be. I've just driven 400 miles and only saw one.

I think the count on BMWs went into 3 figures ...

Me too

The last time I saw one on the road must have been about two months ago! That's part of the appeal to me though.
Subarus and evos everwhere (always fancied an evo when I was younger).

Daily

Drive it daily which I hate - lots of around town stuff and short journeys with no chance to exercise it to its full potential!

I only drive mine on highdays and holidays or to events etc. It's got to be good conditions before I'll take her out as she's a bitch to drive in the wet and generally just a waist of time.

think you need to make some adjustments, bud
are your springs too stiff?
what tyres do you run?

my car is brilliant in the wet, and huge fun

What do I need to do?
hang around outside your local schools at kicking out time :chuckle:

Just trying to keep the milage low on the car, and since i got my S14, i keep that as a daily and the GTR in the garage and only a few times a week it gets driven.... Mind u, it seems the S14 gets more heads turned than my GTR :confused:

And when its out, its driven fairly "enthusiastically" :D

i voted for most days as only a few days a week it gets a rest due to fuel prices, use it to get to work at the weekends, pick my son up from school, & finally for fun in the evenings when i get a chance:chuckle: but it also costs me a fortune trying to get my youngest off to sleep:runaway:

its been the most fulfilling car ive ever owned so why not enjoy it as much as possible, although a lock-bar & slightly softer springs might help in the winter:chuckle:

I was using mine every day of the week for work. Averaging around 350 miles a week and loved every minute off it.

Even with back breaking suspension , agressive twin plate and 600 bhp.

I dont get any trouble in the wet, no wheel spin or anything.

Love them.

As I have a 75mile round trip to work at the moment it's twice a week rarely, but otherwise she is a weekend ride!
