It just so happens my elderly mother lost her ability to drive and I inherited her 2006 Accord. Because of this I decided to garage my new BMW for the winter.
Are there any precautions I should take? Start it once a week? Move it out of the garage once in awhile?
Maybe sounds dumb for some but Keeing my new car looking new is appealing. I'm just a little anal with my cars (the wife may say a lot). My other car is a 1980 MGB LE.
This is my first post....Thanks for listening

Now, Gdiego, I appreciate that the expense of professionally climate controlled garages can be high.

Alternative: DIY

Here's one Northern Wisconsin fellow
, determined to provide the very BEST care for his ride.

I say do it. What could be better than climate control in your own facility? Thus, you are able to care for your machinery every day, the reward of which is evident to you and all who look inside.

A happy new year to ya!
