Just had an email from my local dealer today. One of those generic all customer emails sent to look like it is personalised to each individual client. In it they say... Is your car prepared for the winter months? As the weather begins to turn, you'll find the roads become more challenging and your tyres may need increased grip. By fitting your car with Audi Winter tyres, you'll experience better handling and shorter stopping distances, & not just in the snow. We offer two different types of tyre options for Audi drivers during the cold months: It goes on to say winter tyres to fit over your current alloys from only Â£540, or a full set of winter tyres and alloy wheels from Â£875. You can also take advantage of our Tyre Hotel; a safe& convenient way to store your tyres when not in use. Whether storing Summer or Einter tyres, the Audi Tyre Hotel is designed to keep them in top condition & within easy reach, from just Â£120 for 12 months. Now is this just a cunning plan to get customers to buy tyres who don't need them. Do they think they have expensive cars so they can afford to change the tyres/wheels every six months? I was planning on ringing my local Audi about my break squeal problem but was wanting to be prepared in case they try to pursade me to buy something I do not need considering I bought my car at the end of January this year, & we did have some snow & ice around that time. Surely if I needed them my RS3 should have had them delivered, in fact anyone buying a car in winter should have winter tyres. I know there are similar threads in other groups but I didn't read these as the RS3 tyre is a one size fit, & so I wanted to see if anyone else hash planned to fit winter tyres or do we start a poll for this?
