Winter is here BIGTIME!!

Well, winter has hit us hard now in Ontario. I didnt even get a chance to put snow tires on the 126 yet and let me tell you...never drive a 126 without snow tires! The car is lousy in the snow without them. The biggest problem is moving from a stop and try to get the car moving when the road is snow covered...not much traction at all.

Just wanted to share! The snow tires will go on this week

Yeah, this kind of came out of nowhere, eh? Nothing on the weather station about it until it started to snow and then a storm warning in the middle of the storm. Better get those winters on. I used to run Michelin M+S 330s on my 420SEL and those things really ate through the snow, never got stuck. The E420 is handling the weather pretty well, but it doesn't take much to activate the ASR in this weather, so a very light foot is in order from now until late April it looks.
