Running your 7 in the Winter?
Who all is running their 7 in the winter this year and what precautions have you taken?

I am running mine. Threw on the Style 18's wrapped in 235/60/16's Michelin Pilot Alpin's, got my rust proofing done at Rust Check and should be going in this week to Bimmersport for an oil + filter change.

Anything else anyone would add?

Ever since I stripped off the moldings along the bottom of the doors and found bubbling underneath the beading I had it repaired, painted, and now stored for the winter. The oil spray should keep the corrision at bay but I don't trust what's built up inside the doors of these cars.

yeah, I had the same issue. had it all repaired this summer, and now hoping that the rust proofing does it's job!

run gas line anti freeze during the winter to remove any moisture in the gas and prevent the gas filter from freezing... you could probably even change the gas filter if it hasn't been changed for a while.
