Will it ever stop snowing in Mn.?

Had the privilege to try out my new 04 Mini S in the snow today leaving North Branch heading for the cities.
Car did ok, not looking forward to drive home tonight.
Anyone planning to change a charger belt soon?
I feel comfortable with maintenance but would be willing to help you if you help me.
It looks to be fairly straight forward and I am on the fence as to purchasing a 15% pulley.
Have not purchased a Bentley manual as of yet and hope to change my oil/filter within a week or so.
I ran Royal purple in my other car and will probably run the same in the mini.
After reading some of the posts, it looks like I could easily use my topsider oil pump that I use for our boat to change the oil rather than running the car up on ramps.

I'm new here and a Sota boy too. Picked up a 2011 Countryman a year ago and going from 20+ years in a pickup, to racecar driver is a blast.

I had Blizzaks on it this winter and it rocks in the snow.
