How long is your commute? Is your 3IS your DD?

3IS is my DD. Commute is 10 miles round trip. Sometimes, I go home for lunch, so 20 miles commuting on those days. This is a car I wouldn't mind spending more time in, actually.

I'm about 50 miles round trip per day M-F. Blah. But I do enjoy the ride Just wish the drive entailed less traffic. The 3IS is my DD.

78 miles round trip M-F in my 3IS DD. 9,950 miles at lunch today after 100 days of ownership, because it's ten miles minimum round trip at lunch plus weekends.

78 miles, 78 minutes by the way, with only about thirty seconds of variation at the single traffic light I encounter.

I wonder who doesn't DD 3IS? It's a practical car, not exactly a Ferrari.

It's my DD. My one way to work is a short, but hilly, 5.5 miles. All up hill on the way to work, all down hill on the return. I do about 8500 miles a year on the IS. My wife drives the RX to work, for 12 miles each way, plus we use it a lot on the weekend, so it's about 12k miles per year.
