I don't. The car is registered out of state. Four years so far so good...

Far easier than converting back to stock every couple of years.

My daily is a 2011 Honda Fit base 5MT I bought brand new. It's actually what got me hooked on autocross and track after a friend egged me into going to a track day with it.



It may be slow, but it is super practical. Fits my whole drum kit in the trunk.



Once I got the miata I got tired of the wallowy ride of the Fit so I threw some coils on it.



Also did a nice sound system and some interior painting and such.



Purple steelies for winter cause I have an inner ricer in me somewhere...


Pulled most of it apart recently to do some rust work and protection. Hoping it lasts another 5-8 years.

I do about 2000 commuting miles a month, so this is my daily. It has autopilot so I can work in the car.

Yeah just about every fwd mazda engine and trans has been swapped in. The 1.6 with the festiva trans is probably the easiest though.

Traded in the BRZ for this thing. It's much nicer to daily or road trip. Got a great deal on a '17 6-speed, as the new 18s had just been delivered. After two years with a Subaru/Toyota product, I forgot how alarmingly good Mazda is at manual transmissions. However, the hill assist is very annoying.



My wife thinks I'm maturing, and is pleased that I'm making such sensible decisions about transportation. Little does she know, wheels have been set in motion that cannot be stopped. A practical daily is step-one in a long con towards another loud, uncomfortable, usually broken, and highly impracticable miata.

Just realized I don't have any photos of it. Basically this, but the wheels are a dark dark bronze. 415hp, seats 4, reliable as an anvil, lifetime average 20.3mpg. Will get 26mpg on pure highway hauls. It made me a believer in this newfangled technology that keeps invading my beloved cars.

Laguna only has like 60k miles on it, so that helps I think. I also recently corrected the paint half ***, and that brought a TON of life back into the paint As far as the terminator goes, I freaking love it! Always wanted one, got the best color, IMO, competition orange, and Iíll probably be buried in it, lol.

I don't see many of you driving volvos.
This is my daily in the winter. I switch pretty evenly between the wagon and the miata in the summer, though I just picked this up in August so we will see how even it is next year.
Turbo, AWD wagon. Not a manual though. I call it the red rocket.
