We had snow out here in inbredland. I took the Mini for a spin to practice some winter driving, I didn't keep it mollycoddled under a cover.....

Mini's are for driving. A regular appointment with the bodyshop is part of the experience of Mini ownership.

I have to admit if I had the money I would have a heated garage with a de-humidifyer.

Rust has always been the minis worst enemy Sad

I just think it is futile trying to fight rust as it seems to rain just as much in the summer.

Lol, bet youve been under the car drying her off and then tucked her in to her nice wool lined cover and put her to bed in the lovely warm garage.

As for the salt on roads causing extra corrosion - apparently not these days. I was reading the freebie magazine that comes from Broadland Council every month and according to that, they're using a new type of salt/grit this year which is 80% less corrosive:-

Safecote
This winter, we will be using a salt product called Safecote. Safecote is the
brand name of an agricultural bi-product derived from molasses, which
cuts corrosion by up to 82%, reduces freeze-thaw damage to the roads
and has less environmental impact.
