I agree, especially about the "crap" in winter and if my GT's colour was anything other than black I would not have waited to have mine painted.

Luigi is spot-on with his response. Winter tires are made of a softer rubber compound that provides better traction and stopping characteristics at lower temperatures.

You are welcome. My missus gave it to me last Christmas after listening to me "mention" (aka "whine") that her BMW (her 335) had dibs on our single-car garage in winter.

Daders, I have it and it is 21 by 23 inches in its pouch. When stuffed into the larger storage area it will not allow the floor to sit flat

Did you Buy or Lease your Bimmer?

I just replied to your sound system post and indicated that the deal sounded good. With the demo prices you listed, your deal sounds even better and one that I would take.
