New Car Ahead of Winter: Good or BAD?

With all the forum member new cars going on the road ahead of the worst of winter weather, how do you guys feel about the timing?

I did it once, but never again, as the winter takes its toll and ages the look of the car so fast. Salt, grit and winter 'sweating' just accelerates the whole rust process, tarnishes all the underside parts, corrodes the brake parts.

I'd choose spring myself for a brand new car, to at least have it all looking good for at least a season or two. Not start with accelerated winter 'wear'.
