winter is coming!

Well i have a couple non mechanical related questions here i was hoping you could all help me out with. I have a 92 bmw 525I and im about to have it for my first winter in anchorage alaska. In the not to distant future its gonna start snowing like its its job. What is the best way to winterize my vehicle for a constant snow environment with a lot of ice. Obviously studded tires and some sandbags in the truck but any other ideas?

Also the leather seats are starting to become very cold and i was wondering if anyone knows where i can find some seat covers that will fit the seats to keep my from getting contact frostbite when it stays in the -20s for days on end haha

smear petroleum jelly around,door seals and boot seal, this will stop then freezing shut.


I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
