Canadian Winter

Greetings fellow Z4 Canucks! For those who are brave and driving your Z in the winter how has it been so far? Particularly, how are the windows working. I'm always worried that with the slight drop the drive/passenger windows do when opening the door, and the windows freezing you'll fry the motor. Any issues?

I've been driving but Toronto winter so far is not so bad (knock on wood). It is very stable, slides are there if and only if I induce them (just to have fun) and easy to correct. I rarely open my windows during winter but when I do, it's been fine. I wish the grd clearance was better but so far so good.

Garage List
Drove the Z a few times this past winter in Winterpeg. Had it shod with Pirelli run-flat snow tires on 17" wheels. Seemed to be OK. No issues with the windows, but then again, it was so damn cold that moisture didn't have a chance to set in and freeze.

Just wondering when ppl in the GTA area will be switching to winters? Luckily, so far the weather has been mild. Perhaps a Green Xmas this yr?
