+1 on park brake off and oil change before and after storage, with the cheapest possible essence of dinosaur, no need for synthetics.

I started my E30 twice last winter because I couldn't help myself. Rolling it from one end of the garage to the other just wasn't doing for me. I know, I'm bad, but if you let it run until it's warm enough to evaporate the water out of the oil it's less bad.
Thats a long time to get the oil temps up. Water temp sure, but it takes a long time if at all to get the oil up to operating temperature at idle. And letting it idle for that long is bad in itself
