All things considered, it's a great parking spot--tucked safely in a corner, and next to a "no dogs" sign, so there should be no leg-lifting on your new baby!

I recall reading that in Germany you need chains or special winter gear to drive. Is this true?

you need winter tires,....If police catches you, you have to pay a fine. It´s not well-defined in the law, but you "have" to put winter tires on from october to end of march. fine is from 20-40 euro....

Congrats on the new ride! Yep, the PS2s won't do much good in those conditions. Only 1 dusting here this year in the KMC. Just spending the winter scrubbing off the winter tread for no good reason so far....boring.
