How many Canuck fanatics do we have ?

Just like the title says. I've always wondered how many Canadians are on this site. Where you guys from? Who drives in the snow?


Personally I live in markham, Ontario. I drive year round snow and all. And hate the amount of salt we lay down up here, along with working in a cold garage.

My Ride: '03 325i
From Edmonton, Alberta.. Drive her all year around as well... minimal salt is used here.. salt is useless in -30C weather alone so its mixed with 95% rock and sand.... so we end up with chipped paint and windshields instead of rusted wheel wells

Near Amherst, NS

My wife uses her 03 325Xi year around. We live 40km from her work, so an awd car is right for her in the winter.

My Ride: 2002 BMW 330ci
Huntsville, Ontario. Bout 2 hours north of Toronto. I run my 02' 330ci with a winter set up. As long as the roads are plowed it runs awesome in the snow, taking off the ASC is always fun for some power sliding too. I haven't drove in over 10" of snow but it seems to plow through that okay, uphills sometimes get tricky but running starts help!

I've checked out maxbimmer.com a few times, seems to be lots of people from Ontario on that site. Can't wait till the spring to get out to a meet.
