Sure, you can daily drive them. As mentioned above, it's best to have a spare car when it might be down for repairs waiting on parts. I daily my 96 5-spd Aero without hesitation. About 210K on the odo and I've been driving it daily for 5 or 6 years. I carry a DI and fuel pump assembly in the back. Those seem to be about the only things that have left me stuck and I've been driving 9000's daily for about 24 years. Rear calipers are getting tougher to find and the last exhaust I sourced came from (3) different places to avoid being raked over the coals on price. Pretty much everybody is selling the same parts, no matter where you buy them. I have (3) 9000's on the road right now, plus an 02 9-5 Aero 5-spd. And a truck. I may have to take one of the 97 CSE's off the road as a parts car but I hate to do that to a "drive-able" car. All three have new exhaust from the cat back. A couple have new rotors and rebuilt calipers. I have a spare B234R and 5-spd with a decent clutch in it. Plastic bins full of switches and lenses and such. All of my 9000's are in the low 200K mile area. It's good to have a parts stash or a parts car. I have a radiator that was in a 93 CSE, then a 97 Aero and now my white 97 CSE. The top radiator connection gets brittle and broke off driving down the road. Still available for a little over $100.
