Snow Driving

What are your experiences ?

Even with ABS, TC, ESP, I must say I'm not impressed, wallowing about like an old biddy in 2 inches of the white stuff, embarrassing to see a Fiat Punto breeze up a hill that you have tried 3 times and failed.

My street cred is in serious trouble, what's the solution, winter tyres, snow socks or chains or buy a [ gulp ] 4x4 ?

studded tyres.....as long as you dont stop at red lights, park on the street or slow down to much for corners no-one will know you have illegal tyres.

tried to get out of my rear yard the other night.
steepish and a bit greasy with green slime (tree's leaking) and had a hell of a job and tried both backwards and forwards.

Well its going be snowing soon Other road users may not be as experienced on the snow, so I try avoid taking my car out....allow getting hit by someone. Snow sock seem to work on smaller tyres, not sure if will last on heavier cars like ours?

I don't take mine out in frost or snow, worst car for winter conditions I have ever had. I suspect a lot of it's down to the traction control, if you could turn it righ off I think it would be better in really slippy conditions.

Likewise! If I have to go out, I use my FWD Audi A4 - much better in slippery conditions.

Don't bother - leave it on the drive for the few days of bad snow/ice we experience. I use my daughter's corsa in these conditions!
