Long icy uphill driveway - no problem!

This is my first benz winter and I have to say that I'm fairly impressed with my 210 sedan on PURE ICE. My driveway is long, winding and up hill... had a litle trouble in my TUNDRA 4WD, but the benz made it with no problem whatsoever. I have Hakkepalita IIs on it that I got off craigslist for 2 bills... both the tires and the traction control are incredible!

I was heading down the hill the other day and thought it wise to shift to 1st gear...big mistake because I started to slide quite a bit. I put it back in D and inched down with the brakes and it did much better (assume in 2nd). Came back about 10 mins later and drove straight up. I'm very pleased.

-T.
