Glad it's made a difference
The performance of my 159 TI 2.4 on the snow, slush and ice has been, quite simply, embarrassing. I have watched fiat puntos, battered Golfs and old taxis trudge up our lane, over the last few days, in slippy and difficult conditions. My lovely looking Alfa has, on the other hand, failed to make it up the first 10 yards and I'm sure those fat tyres haven't helped. But I don't think I have ever driven a worse set-up car for these conditions and from someone who has spent half his life living (and driving) on mainland Europe, that says a lot!
