      I looked at the brochure from the Ford UK website, and it also mentions that the kerb weight for the estate/wagon 2.0 TDCi is 1,601 kg, with a gross weight of 2,330 kg. So, it's not simply a vehicle...

      Oh no, not Kickerfox's project!? Man, it's looking like I'm going to be an old man by the time he finishes that.

      And if by 'solved', you mean, 'avoided entirely', then I suppose that counts as...

      You say that like someone who hasn't actually seen the state of his M3. :laugh:

      Most dealers here that dedicate space to keeping an inventory of vehicles on-site, do so virtually exclusively for used cars. Also, like you say, some showroom locations are just that: only for new...

      One difference here in Europe (well, I can only speak with assurance for the UK, but I am confident this applies to most of the rest of the EU) is that new car purchases are mostly made-to-order....

      One thing that stood out to me was the almost complete lack of advertising. No billboards, no posters, no hoardings - absolutely nothing of a commercial promotional nature.

      I did spot a couple of...

      Hehe, yeah, "rat fur" isn't too bad a description. :) Although, not exactly cardboard backing, but plastic. Hey, at least that makes it waterproof (ask me how I know :o).

      Oh, and speaking of...

      Cost-cutting isn't the primary motivation behind leaving out spare tyres. Less weight, more interior space, more freedom of design, 50% of owners not knowing how to make use of one anyway...

      As Jay Leno says, wives prefer their husbands to come home smelling of motor oil rather than cheap perfume. :)

      Thanks for the recommendations. :thumbup: I looked up the WR G3 on the Nokian site, but didn't find anything, but then I realised they brand it as the All Weather+ here. Unfortunately, it's only...

      Thanks everyone. Guess I will get some new ones, then. :) :beer:

    15. How long is "too long" to keep using a set of winter tyres?

      I have a spare set of wheels with winter tyres on them (Vredestein Wintrac Xtremes) that I've been using for the past few years.

      I'm trying to decide whether it's worth keeping and using them for...

      This is cool. :thumbup:

      I've been running a similar little CAN-integrated box in my car for a few years now. It takes some of the usual diagnostic info, plus a couple of auxiliary inputs (I have...

      This is actually quite a representative test of how these vans are driven in real life. There's a reason why the 'white van man' stereotype exists. :D

      Oh, and I've driven that circuit on a track...
