I wash/wax my car regularly before the winter. Had it oil sprayed a few weeks back. There is NO WAY I am not washing my car all winter. I usually will wash it 2-3 times a week.

Winter mode

Car's sitting on 195/55 Nokians seated on the 16x8.5s basketweaves.


Stretched, poke anyone?


Felt lazy so i didn't bother raising it and it wasn't that dumped to begin with.
If i notice i'm plowing snow then i might reconsider... key word, might.

I guess everyone has their own method/opinion on whats best, I did a few layers of wax before winter and I do plan to wash my car during the winter every chance I get, like I always do.

Last year my neighbors thought i was crazy washing and detailing my car in the garage several times a month. I usually wash the car every couple weeks and tuck it away in the garage until I need it.

Went through the car wash today and now my door locks are frozen. Thank goodness that I can use the trunk lock to lock and unlock my car.

unnecessary spraying and spreading around of salty water(into the crevices) is not something i am interested in.

whatever floats your boat.
ive never raised any of my cars either... a little plowing never hurt

Yup, would rather have it sit on winter tires than my summers. Plus I got a killer deal on the wheels.

And I got it rust proofed before putting it away, in the off chance that I might need to drive it in the winter.

Umm ya ok..... cuz I see alot more chicks driving E46/E90 BMW's than 88-91 CRX's and EF Civic hatches...

But you are somewhat right.. the newer 2001-2011 civics are a bit more watered down girlish type of vehicle...

Without getting into a serious disscusion on this...but in general girls dont like "old" cars...You would find the same number of chicks in E30's then in CRX's...

BUT i have yet to meet a girl driving an E30 M3!!!
