I won't drive in the winter
Won't detail in the winter either because the temp is too cold to wax.

I won't be doing much to the S this winter due to getting the house ready to sell in the spring. Way too many jobs I have been putting off.

I'm just east of Broadview Road if you ever need a lift (when the car is off it!). I ain't going under a car alone on jackstands. Fluid changes, exhaust swap, wheels and tires, easy as dirt. Swapped a Q300 exhaust out and put the Medalion Touring on in 20 minutes. The lift keeps the car out of the crud my other cars bring in during the winter.

Thanks. With the new garage having a higher ceiling I may look at a two post lift.

Same here. Downsizing my golf course house, out in the middle of the woods.

Drive it!

After many years of having a daily driver as well as a fair weather toy, I downsized this fall and now just have the S2k (and the family minivan). Winter tires are mounted, fluids changed, valves adjusted, GenX TCT installed, and heat set on high.
