We had some half hearted attempt at snow, about 1/4" I guess, it's nearly all gone now.......

Although the pavements are freezing up so it could be fun later!!

I was going to bring the Leader intoday to get the work done, its far too icey to risk damaging a £62 car, so ive used my £18500 worth of company car instead to skid about in! :D

Weve had a good 8 inches in Worcestershire. Even the grit couldnt cope. I was still getting held up by 4x4's on the way to work in my C2. The thin tyres slice through nicely. Saw one minor bump. Its probably not a good idea taking my BX out in this snow. People would be petrified :) At least ive got ABS in the C2. Incidentaly, the guy I work with says his ABS came on earlier in the snow, but only on the front wheels. I thought ABS was on all 4 wheels? Could be dangerous that.

The BX ABS is scary in snow, nothing happens apart from the brake pedal doing a rhumba under your foot, if Iwas going any distance in snowI would disconnect a sensor and nobble it.
