Yes, I've always had a car at the same time. Going bike only is a pain in the azz. Some downsides include, shopping, hauling anything bigger than what will fit in a backpack, only room for yourself and 1 (adventourous) friend, bad weather, going out on a date, etc.
I remember my car broke down for a few months during a winter when I was a poor college student and I couldn't afford to fix it. So I went bike only for a while and it sucked!
