Are you citing low grip from any tire due to high hp / tq figures (anotherwards throttle mgmt) or is there a different reason specific to Mustangs. Just curious as I've never owned one before. Given the same winter tires, I was actually expecting it to handle a bit better in the snow than my BRZ given how much heavier it is.I don't think I would suggest this car for a daily driver in Pittsburgh for the winter. Sits way too low and I wouldn't count on any tire giving you much grip. I just feel you are asking for trouble
Look at the pictures of the underside of the prototype display car at the Track Tour. There are lots of aero bits under the car that would be problematic in the snow. I believe this is also one of the reasons that car washes are not recommended.
OK, so I looked this up, and it sounds like pure nonsense:Page 33 and 40 of the GT350 owners supplement.
THIS. I grew up in Pittsburgh. The GT350 will be great three seasons out of the year, but when the snow flies, you want a winter car that you are willing to sacrifice to the road salt.I don't think I would suggest this car for a daily driver in Pittsburgh for the winter.

To add to what you said, I agree with you. I wouldn't put the GT350 in a regular car wash. I would look for a touchless car wash and it will be just fine.OK, so I looked this up, and it sounds like pure nonsense:
"Washing Your Vehicle
Do not drive your vehicle through an
automated, commercial car wash due to
the vehicle’s low ground clearance and tire
My C6Z06 has about 2.5 inches of ground clearance (slammed on coilovers) and runs on 345s in the back and 295s in the front. Have been using automated car washes for years with no problems whatsoever. If there's a more scientific reasoning for this, I'd be really interested to know.
There is a full service car wash near me that specializes in high end cars. I take my '18 GT350 there on a regular basis. I haven't had any problems. The spliter clears by about an inch and the tires by a couple of inches. They always double check to make sure it clears/fits and follow it as it goes through.To add to what you said, I agree with you. I wouldn't put the GT350 in a regular car wash.

Have you seen "Auto Fanatic" on Youtube drive his GT350 through the snow?I agree with what others have said. The car is way too low for snow travel. Get it, but not as a daily in the winter. I don't daily mine at all. If you have to, get something cheaper and more appropriate for the weather and keep the gt350 garaged.
