    I love that this car is your winter monster. Can you not raise the ride height during the winter?

    It is an idea, but not sure I want to mess with it. I DD Scarlett 24/7 so I can store her sister the Imola ZHP Vert for the winter

    Great balls of fire, it's Wisco!

    Thanks for the updates. Caught myself thinking of the ol' girl the other day...

    Also: that damn temperature sensor has been replaced like 4 times. It's in such a vulnerable spot.

    It's fun when you're just driving and enjoying your car and that's what it's been for Scarlett over the hard winter we had in Wisconsin. The severe cold temps probably tested the battery a few times, but she always started. The heavy snow tested the snow tires and brakes, but she always moved and stopped under control.. even was able to hooligan a little after snow storms provided a good drifting track.

    The only issue was some increased oil usage (yellow oil low sensor on dash) every 2500-3000 miles. A quick one quart top off and we're all good, except for some under oil cap mayo. I might need to check the CCV, but nothing else is pointing to failure or clogging. Let's see what happens as Spring now appears.

    Yesterday's mileage milestone was a fun one, captured after I pulled over on the side of a country road on the way home from work.
