    Ah, a pleasant 29C in JHB at the moment. The drivers are still idiots, so don't worry, you get them wherever you are...

    Re: Feckin\' Snow!!!!

    I don't know what the fuss is all about...

    I took the C4S out for a play in the snow last night...did 40 miles on snowy roads admiring the view of the road ahead out of the side windows.

    There's nothing quite like 295 wide rear tyres and a touchy throttle to focus the mind! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    Seriously though, the roads are awful...and you still have the 4X4 brigade who sail past everyone oblivious the the fact that the still brake like normal cars...

    Did you actually cover 40 miles, or was it more like 30 with the other 10 going to wheelspin from your drifting antics [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Not at all...I was at the launch of the Cayman - the OPC is 20 miles away...so I actually travelled 20 miles there, and the same home...how many were recorded on the mileometer, I have no idea! Somewhat more perhaps?

    That's the test drive booked in the Cayman S too...hopefully the snow will be away by then!

    Cayman S ? IIRC, JC wasn't that impressed with it on top gear on Sunday...... Nevertheless, each to their own I guess and a test drive is always good [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif[/img]

    Correct!

    They had even reserved a parking space right next to the showroom - in full view of all - for the yellow C4S!
    How very thoughtful... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    The new Porsche wasn't going anywhere in that weather...

    ..and I wasn't parked in the doorway...I was adjacent to it.
    There was a silver aerokitted 996TT parked right at the door...

    I see there are around 100 cars stuck on some road in Cornwall with 8inches of snow in the area.
