Car is useless on the snow anyway. The tyres ( falkens ) are crap in the snow. Just sits there and slithers and my front splitter ends up being a plough ..

Mine is the same. Luckily there is very little snow on the main roads, it's a bit tricky getting through the village though.

I had the car on the drive Sunday morning, engine running, choke out, clutch out, no feet on the pedals and the front wheels were just spinning and the car wasn't budging at all.

I thought that was quite funny.  :?

I'd be so scared leaving my car at the end of a T junction like that  :lol:  (not trying to scare you or anything, it'll be fine  :D )
We've had no useful snow here. It's just turned to ice and getting in the way  :(
