I drove my Z06 as a DD for 30k miles. For it's capabilities it is a remarkably easy car to live with. The suspension is also fairly compliant for it's handling prowess. The car can be a little loud with regards to road noise on the hwy, but again otherwise it is fairly quiet until you stand on it and the exhaust valves open at 4k rpm. I loved daily driving it, but felt bad having to occasionally leave it in a sweltering parking lot all day, etc. I actually just grabbed a 6 speed manual 03 Acura CL Type S. I'm not wild about the body, but the drivetrain is Honda precision. The power for a dd is nice as is the fuel economy bump. I'm seeing right around 25 mpg on my city commute without being nice to it which is about a 25% bump in mileage and I don't feel bad about the Z's paint
