So what are you a daily driver, occasional driver, racer, or all of the above? Please list your mods.

The reason why I'm taking this poll is because I want to see how many people use it as a daily driver even though you have mods on.

Also please list if you had any engine problems.

I'm an occasional driver...I have a 40 mile drive to work, so I don't want to put all those boring miles on the WRX. I have a 92 civic hatch back that gets better gas milage. I also drive the civic to the gym, store, or any other "high risk" area. No one wants to steal a car with 240,000 miles!

But I still drive the WRX quite a bit at night and on the weekends.

I am a daily driver, but I tend to drive sporty 70% of the time. No engine problems, just the weird noises subaru engines make.

My WRX is my reliable transportation. That is why I spent the money for a new car. I have another car that I fiddle with. The engine is currently in 9 thousand pieces on that one.;)

I'm a bone stocker (except for a yellow fishnet stocking around my shifter---VERY SLEAK)
gotta do something about this focking turbo lag, so I may get a uppipe n such soon.
it's pretty pathetic when I am considering a second job just so I can mod her up...I love cars, what can you say?!?!

Frustrated racer. My car is bone stock as well. Kinda worried about the warranty issue. Would likely go up to the next level in about 3 years. I don't know if I'll sell the car then though.

No Boost Control!

I think that is the key to making your daily driver last.

It would be great if I'm wrong, but I think it's safest to let the computer control the wastegate.

I am exactly a TurboXS UTEC Stage IV. It makes daily driving all the more fun.

I have not run into any major engine problems...except for blowing my stock turbo. I don't think of that as a problem though...more of welcomed opportunity. :D
