You certainly want it on a battery tender (search the forum for the one most people here use, or something like this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o00_s00_i00). Were it mine, I would also take it out for a half hour or so on the highway every few weeks to keep everything well lubricated and to discourage the mice from nesting in various places. Putting an appropriate amount of gas stabilizer in the tank would also be a good idea.

Gotta tell you, though. Given the choice between an xDrive with snow tires (what I drive) and an Accord with all-seasons (what one of my partners drives), I know what my choice would be for days when the snow is flying in Massachusetts.
