Is Your Q.V. a Daily Driver

Hi All,

I am curious. Are you guys driving your Quadrifoglio every day as your primary driver? I have acquired a Q.V. and also have a 4 year old Audi S5 (which is really fun too). Debating if I keep the Audi around as a DD or have you gone all in on your Q.V.?

It can be, it does everything you can ask of it, comfortably. The 4C (some do it) would be a hard pill to swallow for a daily but the Giulia will do it with ease.

No winter tires this year so she will sit most of the coming season. Otherwise the only reason I don't drive mine all the time is to keep mileage at a reasonable amount.

Mine is a daily driver. The only hard part is keeping it clean--attracts a lot of dirt to the rear bumper.

Ok. I am planning on using it as a daily, so your input helps me. Thanks!

And the brake dust. So much brake dust.

Also daily driving my QV. You can be low-key and comfortably cruise home in N mode with your heated steering wheel and seats, or you can pop it into race mode and paddle shift the roaring monster down the highway. You'll look forward to your daily commute and find reasons to run errands.

Brake Dust

For a "Concourse Guy" the Ceramic Brakes will eliminate the dust problem ....and look sinister as well....I'm using my Quad as my daily....it's a pretty short commute but for some reason I keep putting miles on this car.....Because it was going to be my daily (and I'm in Long Island, winters can get tough), I swapped out the Pirelli Corsas for Michelin Super Sport Pilots (All Seasons) ...mostly due to the broader temperature range of the Michelins.....The Corsas have UNBELIEVABLE GRIP !!! but I don't think they could manage the extreme cold well.....So my recommendation would be a good All Season or dedicated Snows....

Depending where you live, if you have AWD you should have no issue driving these cars as daily drivers in areas of snow as well.

A Stelvio is needed for the combination of Quadrifoglio and AWD.

Yes, that would be a better option.

I plan on using my base Giula as an everyday car in NJ.
