    How'd your weekend go with your V?

    Mine started well! went to a car show. Made a bunch of imports eat my dust.







    Then... it snowed.... For those of you that haven't had the pleasure of driving your V in the snow... I envy you...

    What is snow??? I'm sure that sucks but I wouldn't know. All kidding aside I'm sure that's a frustrating drive.

    Re: How'd your weekend go with your V?

    I was stationed in North Dakota early 2001 to 2003--I had a '95 Mustang GT,
    and I kept fishing gloves in the trunk (the waterproof ones) because I had to
    dig myself out every day from Thanksgiving to Memorial Day

    I spent Sunday at the races with Cadillac, apologizing to Id for the chipped
    paint. (her name is Id.)

    thanks for asking!

    Re: How'd your weekend go with your V?

    Mine went great! I took mine out to the beach, had a blast. Drove it home, got within 2 miles from home and some piece of dog shit tried to go across 4 lanes to make a U-turn in a Suburban sitting on 26" rims. He almost took out a C6Z in front of me, who swerved one lane over to miss, and then proceeded to continue across and tried to take me out. I had to swerve across 2 lanes and then shoot back one lane to miss people in the turn lane. All the while, this douche is smiling with his gold teeth and giving me the finger. I'm glad I didn't have my gun. I love the handling and tossablity of the V. Any other car, I would have hit that dumb bastard, and with any luck killed him.

    I drive my V year round in Indiana. With a good set of snow tires and traction control off I think its a pleasure to drive in the snow. Not so much at the end of April though...

    as soon as I realized where this story was going, this song played in my head:

    In the Ferrari or Jaguar, switchin four lanes
    With the top down screamin out
    Money ain't a thang

    Re: How'd your weekend go with your V?

    This is my first winter with the V and also my first winter in Colorado... In NY I was used to an effective snow removal program. Snow tires will be a must next season.

    Here's my drive to work today. This is the highway...IMG_20130423_085922_327.jpg

    At first I was confused as to why there was a giant snow bank in the middle of the highway, then I realized that was just the snow on your hood. Maybe if you clean your car off you'll be able to see the road better!

    As for snow tires, the difference between a good set of snow tires vs even high-end all-seasons on snow and ice is night and day. Unfortunately the rest of the time even good snow tires are like driving in mashed potatoes. I recommend the Bridgestone Blizzaks. I had those before on my regular CTS, then bought Nitto snow tires for some reason for the V. I HATE the nittos. Horrendous traction in anything but ice and snow, and in the white stuff they're ok at best.

    Haha, I thought for sure that would blow off and it never did! I've always liked the Hankook Ipikes but never tried anything on the V. But I will be prepared for next season. I'm gunna say it... This should be the last snowfall.

    I use Pirelli Sottozero tires on mine. Makes it completely bearable driving in the snow and they aren't bad when it dries out.
