Mein Auto: cars with studded tires
I'm in Munich now in a Sixt rental. I originally reserved a BMW 1 series but after seeing the conditiions here elected to take a front drive A3 diesel instead. Up until yesterday the conditions in Germany allowed safe motoring with M+S tires on the Audi, but especially today the roads were treacherous and driving the little oil burner was difficult. I'm used to snow and ice (Montana style ) but the roads today looked like a bumper car rink.

A 6cyl X1 with AWD and M+S might have been okay, but today M+S with front wheel drive wasn't cutting it.
'18 440xi Vert Individual - ED #17 planned for 10-28-17
'16 550xi - alpine white over Amaro brown • every freaking option
'11 Z4 - mojave over beige • 6 speed manual • Münich delivery

...and a bunch of old English motorcycles
