Mine was on the road since mid-March. I never take the car out when it is snow or salt.
Over the winter I did a lot of small and big ticket items:
1 - rear subframe bushings
2 - e36 steering rack w/tie rods and alligment
3 - rear shock mounts
4 - switched interior from tan to black/grey sport
5 - US ellipsoids w/hid
6 - Switched rims to Ronal r15 et15
7 - run rca cables for amp and subwoofer (blower stopped operating ...lol)
After the all above improvements, the car feels very different now, I like it very much and do seek every opportunity to drive it.
Sometimes, I would just go out on the cruise in the evening...
