100% get ya JBill.
Mine is a daily driver too, but not in winter because I am in Michigan.
Decided to get some of the more bolt-on upgrades. CAI, tuner, halo headlights, tint, etc.. Its an 07 with 73k miles.
Love the car to death, but the other six grand or so in mods will be a nice down payment on a 2013 pony
Or 2015, because I plan to drive this one for two more seasons.
Good luck deciding, its a tough one.
