This year I didn't bought winter tires, because I thought there won't be any snow....

Weather changed to warm again (6°C) and all the snow is gone. But it just changed to rain.
Last year was more snow, I think thats just the tribute to the changing climate....

Didn't risk to take the scooby out in that snow. I am confident that I can handle the short way to the next parking lot for some snow fun, but I am not sure about the person who drives behind me.

Last time I took it out for some driving in the snow (2004) the car got hit by a housewife's golf wich sled into the front left while I was waiting at a supermarket, causing some serious camber. Since that I really hate snow.

Thats how it looked back then:

(But I managed about 50m sideways in a passat tdi last year in snow)

I was about to say, it looks like you broke your suspension. :)

And off-the-shelf snow tyres FTW (http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=1805387077)!
