    Winter run-around

    So I'm considering getting a little run-around for the winter months and putting the 507 in the garage except for sunny, non salty road days :) Considering a polo gti dsg. Anyone else out there do this? any recommendations? I don't want to spend a fortune obviously. Cheers!
