Today?! You guys haven't had any snow or salt in London til now? Most of my GTA buddies have stored their rides since late October.

I just live across the lake from you in Erie, PA, I drive mine all through the winter. I see no reason to go through M5 withdraws for 5 months. Plus the M5 has heated seats and a much faster heater then my other car.
It is quite the fun car in the snow. :)

I've decided, if its nice out (above 32 degrees) and the roads are dry, then depending upon my plans for the day, my beast will see some winter driving. However, she is dirty and needs a bath currently.

Not so much the cold or the snow for me here in Indiana as it is the potholes and how awful the city patches them. My car decided for me this year when it was being put up. Starter died. Have the new starter to put in it - just got to get to it.

I parked mine two weeks ago after getting caught in the first snow of the year.

It was a sad day indeed but now it is time for maintenance and upgrades which is fine with me. :thumbsup:

Same here. No wet/salty/snow conditions but if there is no precip forecast and roads are completely dry I rock the M5. Way too much time and money spent on the car to not drive it for 6mo.

I hopped in my truck today to run an errand and thought "damn, it's 40 and dry out, why am I driving my truck?" ... and then I saw a veritable mound of road salt in my lane.

Mine's been in the Deep South for several months now. As someone who drives their Beast year-round, it's been just as fretful to think about the cumulative effects of exposure to oppressive heat/sunlight/humidity, as road salt.
