4C is a practical daily driver

I don’t know if this was already posted, but it pretty much sums up why I’m still getting a 4C.

One thing's for sure, I'd be out in my 4C every day if I had the time. Prettiest car to go shopping in too.

It's a fabulous daily driver. You can pile on the miles without a thought or care, and I've heard the Ferrari and McLaren owners rarely feel that way. It doesn't have the hot stone massaging seats and the coffee maker, and some people dislike the engine and turbo noises I suppose. Others struggle to get in or out, and with age I might agree in the decades to come. Meanwhile, I get to drive it every damn day!

A nice piece on the 4C but a couple of annoyances. 1. Lying on the boot lid. Really? 2. Turning the steering wheel without any forwards or backwards motion, then complaining about heavy steering. Proper technique, ladies and gents!

I'm 71 next March so not far behind you. I have no problem getting in or out of my 4C, it's amazing how useful this equipment can be.
