Default Winter Storage Is Depressing

Happy New Year. Itís been about two months and I thought I could make it through another winter but I definitely miss driving the M3. Itís sitting in the garage all clean and stored and each time I walk past it, makes me sad a little. Canít wait for winter to be over. YouTube videos of E46 M3 or pretty much any performance car just makes me want to fast forward time to get to spring.

Anyone else stored their car and wishing for warm weather to return?

I've kept going back and forth on winterizing my car. I live in Rhode Island and some days are in the 50s and no salt so I can't help myself. I started paint correcting my car yesterday so I'm serious about not driving it. Sucks.

Im good with it. I miss the car but spring will be here in no time and that feeling you had when you first got the car will be back again.

I feel your pain, I am in Nebraska. So far a mild winter so I've able to take out every so often when the nasty salt brine is gone (or so I hope).

I don't know how you guys do it. I just got back from a 10 day vacation and it felt like forever. Snow isn't a concern now in California, but when I lived in Colorado I would daily drive it regardless of weather.
