    Just looking at snow drifting to nearly 5ft out the kitchen window now

    This was this morning, a good bit of snow since



    Got down the road but couldn’t get all the way back up and that was after a guy in a tractor did a bit of a job on it and I flattened a lot of piles he left



    And just now if it came out

    Some conditions out there today! Beached the car in the driveway before I went for dinner in my local.
    Myself and the Mrs were shovelling for 1/2 hour before we got it out!

    All the diff settings in the world wasn’t moving it!

    Once on the main roads/side roads it was ok... not great just ok.

    Glad I took the R888R’s and front splitter off before the snow came.

    Worst conditions I’ve ever seen here.
    im not here for a long time,im here for a good time colin mcrae. r.i.p.

    Snow wasn’t as enjoyable to drive through as yesterday but the landscapes were unreal.

    Rafa that top photo is smashing
    @Grahamo you did it in the right order. First you fed your mrs and then you got her to shovel snow

    I ventured out to go check on the in-laws today. The main roads were fine and gritted but side roads were still full of snow. No drama in the Subaru and that's on Yokohama AD08R tyres. Colour me impressed!

    Funny or so l thought. Yesterday l started my car like any other day just to idle for a few minutes in front of the house. Then l went to turn the car off after l did l heard the rad fans on the front still spinning. Then about 15 mins later when l was passing the car l heard the fans still spinning so l open the bonnet to investigate and then l realized that the neighbours had visitors with toyota aygo and they have left the engine running. But l swear yago's engine was making the same noise like my fans

    Just got handed this and I'm actually genuinely surprised. Could barely get it to pass emissions in work and a bad oil leak!
    Tax arrived as well this morning so full window!

    Have booked in on Saturday with daddy to have the cat removed!

    Cars got a wash to remove any salt that built up over the last few days.

    Jumped into car brought it to get all the shit of it and underneath in jet wash fixed bulbs on brake lights filled to the point of spilling out was going to head straight back but couldn’t waste a good dry night to dry car off even if it was a 21 mile spin around the moon lit roads

    Honestly can’t be topped
