My Ride: 06' e46 M3 vert
I didn't because I've been too lazy to diagnose the leak on the passenger side.

Considering the weather in Vancouver has been awesome most of this winter, your reason is pathetic too.

I've had my top down every afternoon this week, and several other times this winter while rocking winter tires and a toque! Who needs a hard top!

No shame here, I had my hard top on from Nov to the end of February. That's what it is for!

But it was vert weather for sure today in Atlanta and I enjoyed my ride home from work immensely!

I went through a record Ohio winter without one (I don't own one). I DID however put on an awesome protectant before the snow hit, and it still looks nice and new. I go through a car wash once a week to keep things clean too.
