  1. Yes I guess it was, but I do feel strongly about same. However to a large percentage of people reading this forum, cost should simply not enter the equation, because as already mentioned by several people, over two/three years its a zero sum, so just a short term cash flow issue.

    And snow/ice is not the only issue, under 7° braking distance on a winter (should quit calling them snow tyres, just add's to the confusion) tyre vss a summer tyre can mean upto 30% braking distance...that's huge.

    By the by 4WD does not give better traction per se, just makes better use of the available traction, I have fond memories of my E36 with a limited diff and (very) good winter tyres going up the alps and having to overtake 4WD on m+s or summer tyres sliding all over the place. Its also good to have DSC (or equivalent) off in snowy conditions, and if possible ABS (but that is nite impossible on modern cars)

    Driver training on snow is also a good investment...fresh snow has a surprising amount of grip (with winter tyres)

  2. There is a naked picture of the car on our web site but I can't show you the actual front clam fixing system because it took us allot of time and money to work out and I don't want copied for while yet :sorcerer:

    However, I booked a stand at the Autosports show today where the cars new colour scheme and some of the GT4 (on slicks) upgrades will be visible.

    Any news on the clam fixing system, like being available for sale :w00t:

  3. Your plan probably most adult, reasonnable, their are however alternative :innocent:

    1) buy a couple of rotweilers with an attitude

    2) grill sardines in the garden closest to their windows every evening from now until september, except on saturdays where you barbecue a whole ox by digging a hole in your garden and filling it with coal (helps feeding the rottweilers)

    3) take the exhaust of the lawn mower and start mowing around 6 in the morning (or whatever the legal time is in the uk)

    4) take up bagpipe lessons (something to do while the sardines are cooking)

    5) you have chidren ? drum kits and ear plugs for all :sorcerer:

    6) send a friend to their door coming from a "concerned citizens" organisation, have them ask them if all ok with neighbours ? cos "confidentially" they are a couple of ex-torpedoes for a russian organisation on a witness protection program, but its all "hush hush" however they havent found all the bodies, so DONT antagonize them...........

    I think they will be moving...and when they do ask them to sell you the drive-way :w00t:
