Thanks for sharing that, I didn't know the difference was quite so huge. I think the thing that stood out for me was the braking test on snow from 30 mph, at the point the car with winter tyres had stopped, the one with summer tyres was still doing 25 mph  :o

 

I think I'll seriously think of getting summer tyres fitted once temps fall into single figures. Better go look at some prices. Does anyone know if some particular winter tyres are known to be better than others?

 

:lol: Why, you fancy skidding around more?

Haha, it's sad really that additional qualifications don't save you anything. You get a degree and you apparently get paid more (that's a lie lol) or you go get qualifications so your not just anyone, but your anyone who knows something and you get paid more, but why does anyone who knows more a put safe driving just get stuffed like everyone else? I suspect the answer lies in parliament. Motoring is the only way us idiots who have jobs worth doing and need to drive to, or families worth having and need to travel to, or for the final matter just want the pleasure and freedom it offers can be bent over at every turn, VED, VAT, insurance, repairs, tolls and everything else in between.

Sad really, if only motorists started to be rewarded more then perhaps we could afford to spend more which would bring more money in...

Besides, I'm sure the government has stakes in vauxhalls, perhaps that's why the 10 year has gone. They lured owners in sold them a vauxhall, whipped away the offer and now stand back and laugh ad their owners are bent over number 10s desk personally

 

To be fair, the problem with UK motoring is far more dimensional. Gain something on one side and get screwed by the other, vice versa... 

 

Take insurance companies:

 

Person A, B and C all buy a Ford Focus, exact same colour, spec, miles, area etc... 

 

Person A is a Vauxhall driver at heart and goes to Halfords and buys every single shiny useless piece of ****, sticks it all over it, adds a few 'acceleration' mods etc.

Person B decides he wants to mod the safety of his car, upgrades brakes, seatbelts? idk, fire extinguishers etc..

Person C doesn't care and doesn't change anything...

 

You'd expect A's insurance to be highest (it probably will be), followed by C, followed by B...

 

When in reality, B would still get a higher insurance because of the mods... even though his mods mean he is less likely to ram into the back of someone that person A or C....

 

Common sense does not always prevail...

Unless you can pick up and move a whacking great terraced property I don't think a name change will throw me off target. :P

 

...Really? Seems to puzzle the s**t out of everyone else I speak too... :lol:
