Got the E30s put away now and the E36 M3 taken out for winter...Just installed the Pilot alpins on the BBS RGRs and put in H&R sports instead of races. Should be good to go!

I volunteer to be the one you can all have a laugh at

My E30 is out every day on fresh new BFGoodrich all seasons. Grip is great so far - the back goes out nice and gracefully exactly when i make it.. What a storm trooper!!

I keep it in the garage overnight - so it starts every time.. and runs like a dream. Also changed the sealed beams last night (my first time) ..Easy as pissing in the snow.

Probably get winters in January before the real cold arrives.

So whats the point of having an SUV if you can't drive it in the winter?!? If I had a Range it would be my winter car for sure, unless it sucks in snow, which would be ridiculous!

You are right, but:
1) I don't want it rusting.
2) I don't want some idiot rear ending me, or side swiping me, or T-Boning me, thus totalling/Damaging my truck.
3)I don't take kindly to 100$ fill ups every few days.

I understand exactly where your coming from Those are the exact same reasons I don't drive my Navigator to often in the winter or let alone any season.. I only drive it when the entire family has to go somewhere together... . Wife and I and my 3 kids.

common you guys don't be such jews, life's too short to be storin your suv's for winter
bmw5, I've seen your range, it ain't that new and bling, I wouldn't be too worried about those things, plus you can always get undercoating for the rust, and gas wasn't an issue in the summer so all of a sudden now its too hard on ur pocket? lol
