  • Its official .... Winter is here !

    got in the car tonight to be greeted with this .....



    For people who arn't aware it may be a good idea to :-

    Make sure your coolant is topped up and Anti-Freeze is sufficient.
    Make sure your Washer Fluid is tipped up with screenwash (not tap water!)
    Tyre Pressures are correct for the 19" wheels its 35 Front 32 Rear (book Values)

    If your and inexperienced driver or are unsure of the road condition then i would advise NOT to turn the ESP off !!! (Traction Control) as in this weather it is very EASY to spin off the road due to the lack of grip.

    Dont' want to sound patronising to anyone, i just don't want to see any threads on here from people who have had an accident this winter !

                      Just been washing my car this morning , soaking shoes etc , freezing "cant feel your hands" .................but worth it

                      Winter washing is a pain but makes it all the more enjoyable when done after its caked in winter grime
