Love my MB But...............

I love my modest MB but when it comes to winter I'll take a front drive VW standard shift without ABS coupled with a set of Nokian Hakkapeliitta winter tires and go out any day.

Not in California. Those Michigan drivers pulling on the left lane 3/4 miles before parked cruiser cost traffic jams on their own.

Californians are the most unconsidered people on the roads ever!!! Another thing here is that you want to make a lane change b/c you want to make a left turn and want to go into that lane. You blink for about 5 seconds and look constantly forward, mirrors and make some looks over the shoulders... Now what happens? That guy behind you in the left lane accelerates instead of letting you in. WHYYYYYY????

For those interested in seeing the difference between winter tire performance and others, go to " <http://www.betiresmart.ca> " and start with the home page ...see winter tires matter... go to the view videos and a variety of RWD and FWD and 4WD cars go through their paces with telling results.

In snow and cold, winter tires make a huge difference.

The roads in Europe are covered with Mercedes, not as many as before, and they have bigger hills, and deeper snow.
Auto rental agencies equip their fleets with snow tires, and of course driver training, and a road test is a requirement for a license
