I've enjoyed the last 2 Chicago winters with my RWD 5GT. First winter, I had the stage 1 DINAN tune. Last winter, I had stage 2 DINAN tune.
Get your 5GT, get snow tires, and you'll be just fine.

Good stuff. I will be having mine coded the upcoming weekend.

Finally, any suggestions/tips in coding?
