Default Moving TL to cold weather

I have a late '04 TL that I purchase in August (Ebony on Black). Love the
car and have no complaints other than the way the water drains after
washing. I currently live in Los Angeles, but will be moving to Central
Virginia in two weeks. What things should do to prepare my sunny girl for
the cold weather climate and conditions. I have the all-weather
Bridgestone's. Should I look into chains, cables, undercoatings, etc. Any
advice will be helpful. I will have a heated garage at the new home.

You're confusing central Virginia with central Maine. :-)
If there's enough snow to require chains, everything
will shut down anyway. The biggest worry is probably
ice, and well, if you're foolish enough to try and
drive on ice...

Be weary of heated garages. The warmer it is, the more that calcium
will eat at your car.

Living in the midwest (Chicago) all my life, I can recommend two things: a good
strong coat of wax (Zaino or Rejex are my favorites) on the body and the
wheels, and a coating of Rain-X on all the exterior glass.
