    Default Vectra vxr winter

    Anyone here driving a vectra vxr in the winter? How does it handle? I have never driven a car with such amount of power on snow
    The winter in sweden can be really bad lol

    In England, we get next to no snow, but driving the VXR around is just fine if you're sensible. Any car can spin/lose control in the snow if you're not
    Having said that this year should be much easier as mine now has a teapot map, which has reduced power when you're not in sport more

    Mine did really well in the snow earlier this year obviously just don't give it the *******s and be mindful that you're stopping a pretty hefty lump of metal so brake early with plenty of distance.

    Its a torquey car so can get into high gears easily , the wide tyres go against it though. I managed to get home in the snow when we had the bad weather in Feb/March this year and then a few days later got to the shops without getting stuck
