  • snow

    got a fair bit of snow up in aberdeen just wondering how you think the corsa handles in the snow.
    i dont mind driving in the snow im used to it now but didnt want to risk anything happening to the corsa so took my time but there was a fair few people driving fast for the state of the road. dont get me wrong im sure there good enough drivers but it only takes a little bit of ice or someone else to lose control for things to go bad

    Good time to test that anti-slip brake thing where it independantly brakes wheels to stop spins! I really want to test mine out! I'll do some donuts in my dads yard if they get any decent snow.

        We didn't have much snow last year but having gone from a big 4x4 to my Corsa , I found the whole thing a bit alarming ! I think it was the fear of someone hitting my pride and joy .
        CORSA VXR , ARDEN BLUE , S+L , AFL , 18'S .

        MPS takes the edge off though !

          well i think the corsas are **** in the snow, took mine out for 10 mins and took it home, i found that if i tried to slide it with the handbrake for a little fun it was kinda out of controll, the tires are so ****, and with them having loads of torque you just seem to spin everyone. wasnt impressed as was hoping for more fun ... on the plus side went home and got ma works van, now its good fun in the snow, ,,,, anyone else notice the same as i did??

                  had a few problems with trying to park last night and today. had more problems today due to it being more ice than snow. I just took my time didnt want anything to happen but was more worried about other people crashing into me
