Well, here's a simple idea. With the country trapped beneath a blanket of 7 odd inches of snow, how has your car done this christmas? The general thrust of this thread being to pick out the stars of on snow motoring, and the lemons. As a starter... being from a mukti car family, my own BMW 330d auto has been predictably brilliant...no, thats not the word...um...awful, yes, awful. Predictably awful for my first winter with it, and hasn't moved much beyond the drive for the last 3 weeks. Partly because I can't get it OFF the gently sloping drive... The '09 Golf GTi basically behaves like an over-excited puppy, spinning the wheels and sliding everywhere but progress CAN be made. Just. The '03 Subaru Forrester S Turbo is unstoppable, as is the '06 Discovery, both of which laugh in the face of any kind of drift, ice or slope, the Disco in particular. But we expected that. So, what's your motor, and how's it managing?
