I am just wondering if there are any fellow Minnesotans in here, I would love to pick your brains on whether or not you drive your SLK year round or not.

Ryan, I don't know if you found your car or not but as a fellow resident, I thought I'd throw in my 2 cents. Here's the scoop on driving up here in the winter. The pros. No starting or running issues. I've driven mine at 25 below f before (It's a little stiff to be sure) and it works well. Great heat and the heated seats, if equiped are wonderful. The cons. Wide tires, RWD and low ground clearance make for a terrible car in snow. You'll hear the argument that with winter tires etc they are fine but they aren't. Additionally, the older ones like mine are prone to rusting in the quarters and a few other common spots and with all the salt on the roads here, you'll accelrate the issue.

I drive mine in the winter when the roads are clear and free of salt slush. That means they there are weeks at a time that it sits in the garage but I think that's better for the car than a 6 month lay up. Hope this helps and I hope you found your ride.
