996 C4 daily driver?

Recommended Posts

I currently have a 2000 Boxster and a 1999 Audi A4 Quattro and have been contemplating trading them both in on a 996 Carrera 4. I know my Boxster has been rock solid reliability-wise and I haven't have one problem in the 3 years that i've had it but it also isn't driven daily. Would a 996 be reliable enough to be driven daily? Would a Carrera 4 be decent in the snow if I got an extra set of wheels? I've driven a Carrera 2 and loved the extra power over the Boxster, I slightly preferred the steering and brake feel in the Boxster but it was pretty much negligable... how much does the Carrera 4 differ in driving experience over the 2? I appreciate any opinions you could give me.

I drive my 997 S daily and have no problem. I go

thru a lot of tires but that is to be expected. Running

a 4 in the snow would not be great. Stock cars have

no limited slip so you can spin a tire. My brother

spun his 4 going up a iceie driveway.
