Most Albertans that don't buy a roadster (convertible) because they believe it is only a two season car. I certainly used to think that way. I've owned many British and American roadsters over the years and dutifully garaged them come October, living the winters in my pickup-truck and dreaming of spring and the open road. Then I got an Audi roadster with Quattro. Woo-hoo. A German engineered toboggan on rails! With decent winter tires, this car absolutely sticks to the road. Unlike Corvettes and the like, it has just enough clearance height to get through most snow days without difficulty. And with heated seats, mirrors and glass back window, it is made to be driven in comfort on cold days.
