I lived in Boston (Somerville, actually) until a couple of years ago, and I can't think of a worse place to drive a Coupe in the winter. The salt laid down by overzealous MBDC crews when it snows becomes the main ingredient in those black pools of standing soup after the snow melts, and then dries as that white dust on the streets that gets blown around for months. It'll turn your bodywork into iron oxide in no time.

Your coupe most likely does not have limited slip, and it's pretty light out back, so it won't deal with the snow very well. I got caught in the snow once with my coupe, which does have an LSD and it wasn't any fun. Ride the T.
