I live in a very cold and snowy region of New York State so winterizing for me means mounting 4 snow tires, putting on the OEM bra, replacing the snow bruch/scraper back in the car, and adding a wool blanket to the trunk (variant actually in this case). I stock up all summer with lots of wiper fluid when it's only $0.89/gallon.

I had also planned to do a Rainx treatment to the front windshield but it's too cold right now.
