Like this at present, outside my home, frozen solid, like driving over rocks.
Yes been driving around the North of Scotland on the 16" steel (bridgestone blizzaks) wheel set I got fitted last week. Looks aren't the best but this is definitely the best car I've driven in snow and ice. The grip is scarily good. Seeing everyone else struggling especially a few X5's and Audi quattro's on low profile summer tyres I don't know why holyrood doesn't consider making it law up here at some point in the future.
I thought I'd regret not having the x3 but so far so good!
