Don't you have an awd Porsche? You driving it through the winter on snow tires yet?

Nope, for the reasons I posted. I don't want some person on all seasons sliding into my car.

I also plan to keep my car for many years. So I don't want the salt issues associated with long-term winter use. Corrosion and rust. So my AWD BMW carries year-round duty.

But plenty of guys run their 911 all year round. I have thought about a Carrera 4s as a DD. But the lack of storage space is a huge turn off for that. It's probably got like 2.5 sq/ft of storage space in the front trunk. haha

I think a 996 (Vogs era 911) in a 4s (AWD) would be a "cheap" and fun DD. Or the newer 997 if the budget allows.


Maybe split the thread into a new thread as to not get way off topic on Tyler's thread. lol

Exactly why I would never drive my "nice" car through the winter. You should see my new F150 after the last snowstorm we had a few weeks ago. When I finally washed all the crud off it there was a shit ton of chips and small rust spots all over the damn thing. I immediately thought of all the idiots that say "its just a car, DRIVE IT!" lol

Winter absolutely destroys your shit!

I assume he means corrosion. I know Ford, and others, had issues with corrosion on aluminium parts before they made the F150 all aluminium. I doubt they solved that issue. Well, without spending a lot of money.

Yes. Tiny rust spots that are obviously iron deposits embedded in the paint.

No. This is not the aluminum corrosion issue. Truck is only a few months old and only has 8k miles.

Its iron particles in the paint. Not a huge issue but will take some Iron-X and buffing to get out come spring, but still crazy what one snowstorm will do to a vehicle.

I had the 2011 Mustang GT that had an aluminum hood. It had corrosion on the front edge. Many owners complained of the same issue. It didn't seem like many owners were successful in getting Ford to warranty it either. Sad that a well-known issue gets ignored.

Do you winter guys not have insurance..... Seems getting hit by someone would be my last concern. Cars can be fixed, insurance pays out, etc. But ok. Lol. Better check the humidity in the bubbles these cars sleep in for 8.5 months

Some of these cars put away for the winter are expensive. When you have an accident on your carfax the car gets way harder to sell. Even if fixed right by a reputable company they end up selling for way less money than a non-accident car. And seeing where more accidents happen in the winter...

Like I say a lot, it is about risk versus reward. Some people don't want to take the risk. With accidents or rust.

Don't forget the previously mentioned paint chips everywhere. And some people just like their cars to stay nice.

10k used BMW with 5k in modifications, 5k Gen1 Lightning, and 80k Porsche with 25k in mods brings the total to 125k...lol

Well to be fair, didn't you also say you were thinking of a 996 or 997 C4S to replace that BMW? That's pretty baller IMO.

I said I thought of it. But doesn't make much sense. BMW is a better DD.


But a Cayenne Turbo S on the other hand...

Uh I like how you left out the Porsche. And wtf are you talking about union Money? You drive exotic German cars while I'm in junky ass Fords...lol

I actually priced out a Macon S a year or so ago. With some pretty nice options I got the sticker over 100k rather easily. That was the end of my Porsche shopping! haha

I left the porsche and Lightning out of it because he mentioned the BMW & first world problems. Then you act like my BMW makes me fancy of something. It is a cheap car. I don't act fancy or anything because of it. I am bringing down the class of the average BMW owner. And I am ok with that.


Plus $50K mustang > $10K BMW

Buy a used Macan as a CPO. Cheaper and a warranty. Step up your game!










And where is @Mook with the thread split?
