First question answer: Not by just running the engine, driving, your breath inside the car (condensation, remember bringing a girl somewhere to park the windows get all foggy :lol: :lol: ) and you will use the heater to warm the inside of the car, defrost the windsheild if need be etc... Now, when you turn off your car, there is a high amount of humidity inside the cabin area. To understand with a visual example, you would need to have a heated garage, and you would know what I mean. when you would leave the heated garage, and park it outside for an hours or so, the entire windsheild will frost up from the inside. Not good !!!!! that means all other components would have that kind of reaction (sensors, computer, interior panels etc) If you use the car regularly then its not too much of a problem but not good. And dont park it in a heated garage if you use your Ferrari in the winter, turn the heat off in your garage.
Second question: the tires will kick the salt up everywhere...front tires turn inside/outside, it gets into everything, and rear gets kicked up because of wheel spin
I did a full inspection that one year I drove my MR2 a few times in the winter and I had salt and sand everywhere.
