Did an emergency run first thing Friday as the 1 series was grounded. Performed faultlessly even on summer tyres, back safely in the garage, been in the 1 since....loads of fun :)

Confused the hell out of the neighbours by being the only BMW to make it up our slight hill; summer tyres and virtually no traction......spin it around (literally) and simply reverse out; instant front wheel drive.

I have now started a merc / bmw reversing craze in the neighbourhood....it is quite entertaining watching rear wheel drive cars being piloted by people sporting insane grins...:-)

I've been out today after about 4-6 inches of snow last night in Yorkshire :D

Car was fine and very reassuring .. easily managed a very trick U-turn which is on a steep gradient and ungritted . There was a beached BMW at the same location :roll: did'nt see how he/she came to grief though.

I'm actually glad I don't have to deal with the snow in the uk any more.

Took the RS3 out for the first time last night. Wow summer tyres are shit. The winter tyres I have on my leon make a massive difference. I'd highly recommend them. Think I will get a set for the Audi next year.
