    I load 4 or 5 weather apps on my iPhone. Check the weekly forecasts constantly and try to organize my schedule such that I'm free on the best weather days since I don't like driving on summer performance tires in temps significantly below 50 F. Doesn't always work, but when it does, life is good!

    If there is no snow on the ground or of immediate forecast, I drive mine every weekend. Whether it’s an hour or six it’s my policy.

    And if it's slippery I'll take out the AWD beater.

    I washed my 'winter driven ferrari' today as it was 82 degrees F today :D

    I will have trouble driving in the summer when it is 96F and I have black leather interior.

    Sorry to join the ‘driving all winter’ crowd, but I’ve had the 458 out just about every afternoon/evening since the new year. Nice 50 miler tonight. Cheers, all!

    P.S. pic was from Festivals of Speeds in Orlando. Car is not for sale, to the contrary it goes in next week for laser jammers and Kline exhaust.

    I'll raise my hand as a member of the "fair weather club" as well. Not to be a jerk, but Hwy 33 above Ojai is too picturesque at this time of year to not share...

    Went back up to Zion National Park a couple of weeks ago. It was a bit sketchy going higher up the hill for some of these shots. Naturally the higher you go there is more ice. Not to mention you can see chunks of rocks on the road at different places from the overhangs. Snow will melt and loosen things up. You could be driving and boom. You have a couple of chunks land on your car. I swung wide to avoid these. But hey I got the shots.

    Got up early last week and snuck in a drive before the cold front came through.
    Was in the 60s in the morning.

    Then it snowed. Then it was 80+ F a few days later.
    Back to freezing tomorrow. Crazy!

    Sounds like a challenge for the ff/gtc4 forums.

    Rain/freezing rain and temps 20s to 30s. Winter finally getting here so looks like its the garage until march or april. Envious of the people with 60 degrees.

    Beautiful GoPro Drive In Zion Park with 3 RS... 3-minute video.. Amazing day up there again. It's just so majestic. Make sure your youtube playback quality is set to 1080p60 for best results. Sweeping rock is at 52 seconds.

    Amazing scenery, but why are you driving on slow motion?

    Probably due to 35 MPH speed limits ,double yellows plus the mobile chicane in the jeep up ahead?

    Any speed cameras there ?

    Audi's AWD system has been proven to be world class for decades now. I think you're mistaking off-road capability for AWD complexity/performance.

    An AWD RS6 is not going to be able to go through the woods like a Rover but this has nothing to do with the quality of the Audi's AWD system. :rolleyes:
