    Take care people out there, its starting to get quite thick , and theres all these dummys that think they can drive at speed in the snow and handle it....NOT!!! Just witnessed a TT trying to pull out on white van man and..... hit it instead!!!!

    So take out there Huh?? As an old 80s police show used to say... "Lets be careful out there..." /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/fuck_you.gif

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

    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! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif

    Correct!

    They had even reserved a parking space right next to the showroom - in full view of all - for the yellow C4S!

    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...
