Out and about this morning in my new to me 05   GV Zuk not had time to put any ATs on her yet so has Dunlop m/s tyres about 6in snow on the roads abandoned cars all over the place including a fair amount of soft/roaders Ravs,CRVs,Kugar, that sort of thing,first thing I see actually moving is an Zuk SJ pickup both of us have a grin and wave round the next bend a Frontera in the ditch 3 wheels off the ground been there all night by the amount of snow on it got to A303 nothing moving either way because of accidents also lorries cant climb Beacon hill ,anyway point of this was to say driving in low box high gear the little Zuk on nothing more than winter tyres just dealt with every thing it came across just a matter of keeping revs down wheels straight,just a reminder why I buy the little jems!! :cool: :grin:

I had some fun too. Six to eight inches in Worcestershire and drifting. The main roads were havoc but the lanes were car free - 4x4's and tractors only!  :evil:

We are yet to get the serious amount we were forecast but in a way Im gratefully as it is kinder for the sheep. Still want to go for a play though.
