I bet you're better off than my wife's SLK. We live on a fairly gentle incline and the bloody thing wont climb up the driveway.

Makes me glad for the Subaru when it snows.. :D

The car beeps when the outside temp is low enough for there to be ice on the road.

Starting a thread that says "our cars suck in the snow", then including a picture of said car with dsc and traction control off - this is pure genius.

a) it looks like you're on the summer conticrap contacts. get snow tires. stock tires for the sport package are generally useless in the snow. the compound hardens etc.

b) it looks like your seatbelt or airbag warning light is on, might want to get that fixed. if you're driving in the snow with summer tires and no seatbelt, while snapping a picture,well, i guess thats a nomination for a darwin award.

had no problems getting to the supermarket on my LM22's just now.

stock tires are not made for snow

Oh man, rough day today for me on the roads.
I am riding on MV 72 18s Potenza RE040s I believe, need to re-check. This is just not pleasant on snow covered roads. I need some 16s with snowtires.

DSC does help, but sometimes you need to turn it off.

And leave this cat alone, I strongly doubt he rides around without DSC in the snow. It might be that the light was on when he took the pic. DSC is very sensitive.

Now for the important question, whos got some 16s they wanna sell me.
