Lets sleep through the winter...

Put my Coupe to rest for the winter yesterday.

But first a little wash and changing of wheels. Put on my 19" LM reps from my E91 for storing. The tires are cheap so if I get flatspots I dont ruin my Michelin PSS's.

Actually looks pretty good with these wheels.





Now sleep tight.

Garage List
Mine is going away this weekend, even though it's supposed to be in the 60's on Monday. I'm toying with the idea of just garaging it as I do when it's at home, fully fueled, battery in, ready to roll. On the odd warm day I could just swap it out with the X5 and drive it for a day. But then I wonder if that will do more harm than good. Any opinions on the idea of leaving it ready to go and driving it maybe two or three days a month? My commute is 110 miles r/t, so it would get plenty warm enough to burn off moisture.

I hope not. That is what I have done with mine the two years I've had it. I haven't noticed a difference.

I do as well. I want to get one.

OP - Flat spotting on modern tires are usually a myth now. Inflate to 40 PSI and you'll be fine. Drive a couple miles and they will disappear.
