I love the cold!

The car has been an absolute beast the last few days as we've had very cold mornings and evenings here in socal (cold for us). Not too often do we get 35-40*F air to let our engines breathe. Man is this N54 happy!

Been in the high 70s, low 80s down here. Can't wait for it to cool down a bit.

Yes it's been so cold, my car has been hauling ass. But I have to admit, my gas mileage is getting killed in the mornings from driving around the city without a full 240F engine. I got 130 miles on a half tank. That is like a M6 MPG.

Been loving the cold. Just took mine out on 133 south to Laguna Beach and it was a blast. I got the cold warning on my iDrive last night after two years.

The 133 is too fun to drive when I'm heading out to LB or Newport every other day.

I still think my car runs like shit in the cold. Maybe it's just all the chassis flex and creaking going on- and not having the top down to feel the world going by at highway speeds

I woke up to 36 degrees today. Positively chilly.
Then I went for a drive up the Angeles Crest Highway. Positively awesome.

Love the cold, my cars love it. It is amazing how both my n52 powered car and n55 car feel so much better and having no bug splatters on the front end of the car is the icing on the cake. I hate summer for the most part. Humid,hot,sweaty,bugs all over the car and weaker engine response.

Blizzaks baby, Blizzaks! But I can't hook up in the rain... not cold enough for snow here sadly, I need to move back up north. I don't know how anyone can live happily south of the Mason-Dixon line, I need my winter snow to keep me happy, and the weather in summer is just miserable.
