Do you want the Road Tax system to change? Do you have thoughts on the potential changes to the Road Tax system? | No thanks

Strange how fate sometimes takes a hand.
Three months ago I was within a whisker of buying an MX5 with folding hard top, but it was not to be. Then came the pre Xmas snow & ice and I broadened my search for a convertible. Returning from holiday I followed up a 6 year old 330Ci which had been marooned at the bottom of an ice covered drive for several weeks. A fair price was offered, and duly accepted. Its a fair bit more refined than my previous Elise, and I shall be sad to say good bye to my current car which was bought to tide me over for 3 months some 27 months ago!
Lets hope for sunny skies and ice free roads from now on.
I may have to change my moniker......

if you read john redwoods blog you will know he chopped in his jag for a 4x4 over the last few weeks in sheer frustration that the jag wouldnt move on the slightest sign of ice or snow

think quite a few people dump their cars when they realise they are useless in mild winter weather

seems previous bmw owner took a similar view

As has already been mentioned in other threads, it takes a certain type of mentality to buy a new car rather than simply put winter/all-weather tyres on the original car. Or even to wait 14 days and be back to normal again.
