In the end I couldn't find anything to bring me to a halt so I've given up and come home to write this post.

There are undoubtedly better pure winter tyres out there but these have proved a great all-rounder through the Autumn and they didn't let me down today.

Tomorrow I am going hunting for stranded Quattros.

Yes, but are you really a prince?
