    Winter Wonderland.... Driving P car all Year

    Car is in shop (has 312 miles on it) getting 3M film on hood/mirrors,snow tires on Porsche 18"rims, built in radar. I ordered black rubber mats. They gave me a Cayenne V8 for loaner--interesting. Good sales technique. I miss my car !
    Another stupid question for the Norther Tier P Car drivers?
    Q : do any of you put 'mud flaps' on the back/front?? To keep the road blast off the fenders.
    The purists are about to barf, I know. But,since I am going the all year round never live once enjoy and have fun route,,,,thought I'd ask.
    Any routine to washing(salt/sand off) that you have found successful?

    By the way, the MP3 discussions are very helpful ,but,still make me frustrated that the company is not even close to the customers in this area. Why don't they develop a tech paper on what we can do with our "state of the art" Bose systems??? What the electronics guys can do to support my IPOD/PDA's--- that have tons of music on them. The CD player is a joke. I still love this car, but World Class should cover all areas!

    That's how it looks this morning over here and I am picking up my new car today!!!!!!!!
    No, I will only have good winter tyres on smaller rims..
    Do not wash the car when it is freezing, unless you can put it in a warm garage afterwards. Put silicon on all the joints...wash regularly.

    Gnil, now have my car in Basel - journey was fine. Snow (less than you have by the look of it) has arrived overnight and I'm planning to drive to France on Sunday afternoon - hmmm. Do you think there might be somewhere around Basel where I can get some emergency snow tyres (same 19" rims) - or even chains? I'd probably go for the Contis - everyone seems very happy with them.

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Winter Wonderland.... Driving P car all Year

    I would not consider chains, unless you have to go over an alp pass.
    If you want tyres go to the local P dealer, as the sizes will be hard to find in independant shops.
    Which way are you travelling?
    If you do through Switzerland, Geneva... then Lyon and so on , I would not worry too much if you drive during the day and snow is not falling intensively . Weather forcast seems to be half snow/half sun..
    Roads are now cleared over here (friday noon)..
    Have a safe trip
