I say no. It can be done but definitely not practical. I can't think of too many cars more impractical as a daily driver: 2 seater, no trunk, 335 25 20 tires. Not to mention that you may not want to put unnecessary miles on the car like driving someone to the airport etc.. I say just buy a 10 year old Jeep or other small SUV for $5k-$10k, problem solved.
Sounds like you'll have a similar problem to many of us with the bad roads, pot holes, etc. The 335 25 20 tires may cause you headaches if the Z is your daily driver; flat tires, bent rims, etc.. At least you can see the roads during the day but it's not so easy at night. I have low profile run flats on my 650gc and blew out 4 tires in 2 1/2 months this past winter. My tires are 245 40 19 so the 335 25 20s will be a nightmare if your roads are horrid in So Cal. Something to think about.Thanks John. This confirms what I have heard and solidifies my desire to order the Stage 1 Z06 as I plan on using it as a daily driver on our horrid So Cal roads.
In my experience:Just wanted to revive this thread b/c I have caught the Z06 bug and it looks like I'm finally going to make the leap into a Z06. A few questions for current Z06 owners...
(1) Not like gas mileage is really a high priority for me (I'm looking to buy a 650 HP supercar after all), but in the economy setting are you able to average anything higher than 16 MPG in city driving?
(2) Looks like there are currently some small (5K) discounts off of MSRP ... is this a recent trend with Z06s now that they've been on the market for over a year?
(3) I found a car with the 2LZ package at a good price... but this interior will have Mulan leather instead of the Napa leather & suede headliner of the 3LZ package... is there really a noticeable difference between the leather quality/interiors of these two trim levels?
(4) How has this beast been as a daily driver? My C7 has been flawless.
