some pics of where i would normally park it and my struggle last night to get it even close to the side of the road! not sure if anyone else has tried battling the traction thingy in snow but it really doesnt work

lost my hump with it and left it a short bus ride away from the curb :P

People say to try without the VSA...but whatever you do, don't risk moving it if you don't have to!

only fear is leaving it there for tomorrow morning when the gritters fly round and take a few layers of paint off. however it just wasn't interested in reverse gear and i have quite a tricky reverse to get into the drive when dad's car is one side (the black saab in the pics) and someone else parks where my car is now...

i'll risk leaving it there i guess but i'm not too comfortable with it! may shovel the drive and the road around it later and take a stab at moving it in or i may just sit here some more :P

Milano in a few years time if you don't have a garage

Great pics zai0s. I really feel for you having this kind of weather when you have just got your car.
