Spotted an early CO Elise out and about today in Utica, Mi. Area of M59 and Schoenherr/M53. Was surprised to see that snow flurries and a really nice Elise in the same shot. I have to say that it looked to be in great shape and very clean. You sir have balls to be out there in the cold. You may have different tires on there tho, I do not trust A048's in the cold

Haha ya should I take my A048s off the car and store them above 32F? What a ballsy dude, maybe he was storing his car at a girls place and she got sick of him spending more time with his Elise over her.

I'm not sure how well salt and aluminum play together, so mine is squirreled away until April. Ao48s would be rock hard and slippery like an eel in 20 degrees. I can't imagine driving them in the winter, I'd use a cheap set of all season Kumhos just so I could get a bit of traction.

I did see an Evora at Somerset mall last week when it was about 40, slightly more sensible.
