997.1 TT as semi-DD

Hi guys,

Any previous or current owners of 997.1 TT have experience with driving theirs in colder climates as a semi-DD? What I mean is that they used them during "shoulder seasons" as a daly driver.

This car would not be used through deep winter, but would have winter tires on it for fall and early spring.

My main areas of concern are:
- ground clearance - did you do damage to the bodywork because of ruts
- did winter tires completely take away the fun of the car in winter
- any mechanical issues directly relating to cold weather driving (radiators damaged due to rocks, brake and suspension corrosion etc)

Anyone actually use the back seats for a child seat? I don't have kids yet but as it goes in Game of Thrones - "winter is coming."

Any feedback on ownership/maintenance/fun to drive is welcome!
