Get a car cover :P when they predict snow pop it on, when It snows whip the cover off? You can pick them up for a fiesta for about £20 I think

I was tempted to buy one myself, mainly for when I'm detailing the car and if I left it over night to carry on the next day it doesn't get covered in muck

I would, But i live in a area full of dis-respectful idiots so the cover wouldn't be there in the morning, Lol. Though it is a good way to keep bird droppings and stuff off the bodywork. I spent 3 hours in the freezing cold washing the car today it was worth it tho :)

Well light snow arrived in Newcastle at the start of the week, then the ice, and as of this afternoon more snow - thicker and heavier than last time. Had to take some pics tonight on my return journey from the gym:

Cool snow pics, I didn't think to take any! First time I have driven in proper snow, as we rarely get it here on the Island. But was rather impressed with how my little Festa handled it!

Absolutely not true! Your tyres are pants in the snow. My Fiesta on Continental WINTER tyres ran circles around 4x4's in the snow! Could do emergency stops and everything!

Yeah but winter tyres are like £350 and usable for like a month :P

My old cars never needed winter tyres either and were better than most with winter tyres tbh >.<

Only advantage with the Fiesta is it's decent to handbrake round corners :P

My £200 winter tyres on the Skoda beg to differ ;)

In fairness, I could probably swipe some from work. Bust still! I have lack of funds and with 2 newly buckled alloys, there goes more money :P
