Ooh, I went to school in Syracuse for four years...sucky weather! Make sure you get a good wash and wax in before the snow hits. The salt they put on the roads is absolute hell for paint and the underside of your car. I was told that there is a "treatment" for the underside of your car that will help prevent rust, but I heard about that in GA, so they may not have anybody who does it in NY. There is also this wax/polish type stuff that my bf heard about on a tiburon forum called "liquid glass". Check it out on the advanced auto parts web page (that's where we bought it). The people on his forum swear it works wonders and gives a good protectant layer to your paint. I haven't tried on my tC yet, but that's only because I just picked it up yesterday. But I'll try it as soon as the sun starts shining again and let you know how it works. Best of luck!
