Where are you located? It's almost 50 today here in Dallas, but getting the car to hook up it kinda tuff with the R compound tires.
 
In New Jersey the temp has been mid 30"s in am rising to mid 40' in the afternoon. if no residual salt on roads I drive it. I want to keep the fluids circulating and the seals lubed rather than sitting for a few months. you do get the rears chattering for grip initially but they do seem to heat up enough after a couple of miles.
 
I didn't buy mine to just let it sit but not gonna drive it all the time either.I have owned mine for 2 months and have put 400 miles on it but has been raining alot so haven't got to get it out as much as I would like.I live in Alabama so snow is not a problem.
 
Drove out in the afternoon here in SC at 40F, was coming home at 26F about 10:00PM. All was well, just drove like my grandma on the way home. 3,700 miles now on her. I just have trouble not driving her on the week-end!!
 
Ok, finally read all the posts and I still say, unless there is salt on the road or it's snowing, drive it. I was working in Dallas today and when I came out it was snowing and sleeting. Drove my GT500 home to Fort Worth with no problems. WTF, where did the snow come from? ???

I got my S in late November. I have 1200 miles driving in a poorly shaped circle. :)
