I only put on about 4k since the spring but will probably put on close to 1k in the winter months driving to and from work between snow storms.

I don't know how many miles I put on, but the Chicago winter was so mild last year that I never really put the Z away. Once the roads were clear of salt I took her out. Hope we have the same kind of weather this winter. That said, I'm glad I have a Toyota for my winter car.

Averaging about 13k a year on mine. Love it as a DD.
Only time I don't drive it is when I have to haul something or it's supposed to rain hard.

I only put 4000 km/2500 miles on it since I bought it in mid June. Down to 2 cars now, the Z & our Mazda, so I'm leaving the insurance on it in case I need a second car in an emergency or similar situation. Had a winter car last year but sold to the brother- in- law , so we are down to 2 for the first time in many years. May take the Z out on nice sunny dry days as I have a heated garage if it needs a bath.

Have full function of the arm now. Just a little hard to twist the wrist at times. The arm doesn't have a whole lot of strength yet. I'm curling 5 lbs.

Hmm winter storage is foreign to us in Cali. Nice weather is the only positive thing here.

I put about 500 miles on my 2013. About 4900 on the ODO. New York winters, not my primary ride and a job that keeps me away from home for a bit. I figure I give it to my son in a few years with less the 10K on it.

I added 3700-ish miles to the clock this year - a lot of that was twisty mountain road though, so it was definitely worth it.

But it's getting time for the Z to hibernate in the nice, heated, underground garage with all of my neighbor's toys. It sits in the same area of the garage as a Hellcat, an Audi S8, and an AMG SL63 - so I don't really need to worry about someone dinging the car with a door...

I tell ya though; coming off of the Z to driving the Jeep, which corners like an aircraft carrier and takes about a zipcode to stop, is always a downer...

Only if it's a dual clutch like what's in a Ferrari or Porsche.

You guys all need to drive and enjoy your car more...

There was weeks that I put on 3000 miles.

Only put on a little over 2700 miles this year. I bought it in August of 2011 with 9100 miles on her and I only average about 2800 miles/year.

I hate not being able to drive it all year, but that's the price one pays for living in the North. Put her to bed in the garage 2 weeks ago with 28955 miles on the clock, but at least I see it every morning and evening when I leave/come home from work...
