Just wondered how many people use their EVOs through the winter, and how many tuck them away safely until the better weather?

Drive it everyday, unless the weather is warm and sunny in which case 200bhp/tonne and 4 wheel drive is no match for 400bhp/tonne and 1 wheel drive!

Anyway standard Evos are much more fun on wet, sh*t covered roads than they are in the dry. You could say its what they were designed for ;)

Mine is away for the winter although i would love to drive it somedays.

Should soon be out though hopefully, if this mild weather keeps up.

I didnt have money to waste on a car sitting in the garage. I drove mine all the time.

My other half has his car locked away over winter which i keep saying is pointless :D

Here we go again....

... mines garaged, its the only way to keep the car looking fresh; first time they see salt the alloy starts corroding, the metalwork dulls off and they look very tired very fast, i guess it depends on how keen an eye you have, and how long you plan to keep the car :)

Fast Asleep

Mine is hybernating over winter all snug under its covers. Although they are designed for shity roads I prefer to keep mine as clean and new as possible. The intention is to not sell her so trying to also keep the milage down. That way I can drive her pretty much when I want in the Spring/Summer months! Not to everyones taste but who cares....

I'm not alone then.....

Rich W do you use a maintenance charger to keep the battery fresh and ticking over?
