As opposed to hot air spouted by you :lol:

Sorry black caps but there are some snow chains in the boot the previous owner supplied as well as a Thule Roof Rack. So Now I have 4 sets of the same size chains and two roof racks. :lol:

btw, Winters over here. Although trying to explain that it is to early to do the alpine walking tracks to certain northern hemisphere Rugby followers has been a mission.

No, dont think so, being white they just cant be seen in the snow and spoil the view.

Jokes aside white was the main colour to be seen on NZ roads in the early 1990s apparently because of the low ozone and high UV levels that effect the paintwork of colour pigmented cars.

Whites actually easier to see witht he lush green backgrounds more common. :lol:

I have nothing against white BXs, in case anyone asks. It would be daft for anyone with a St Tropez to suggest white is anything other than the ideal colour for a BX.

...which means that anyone with a Venetian Pink BX would have an even harder job keeping their car looking fresh if they moved South.

(That's southern hemisphere South and not the Isle of Wight BTW)
