  1. Set of Cooper weather masters sa2 winter tyres on my wife's Honda Jazz. Had to pay £200 for the set and £40 to change them over each winter and spring, but this is my third winter out of them. Fantastic grip in all conditions, I laugh at the folk in there 4x4 with summer tyres getting stuck on small icy hills whilst I skip past them. Great investment, I do live in Scotland though, so winters up here are colder.

  2. Regardless of random tests being carried out, IMHO I regard that as a mute point. If your caught behind the wheel of a vehicle with excess alcohol in your system you deserve to be held to account. I am a firefighter, I do see the after effects of drink driving all to frequently (more so this time of year). If you know your going to be having a drink leave the car keys at home.

    It's usually the innocent victim that comes of worse in my experience, the drunk driver usually walks away. A lower limit isn't there to catch more people out per say but to make people think "is it worth it".

  3. Aye it's on, I've folded, getting up these last few mornings I've really felt the chill. I either get up at 0530 for my swim at 0600 or up at 0600 to cycle to work. I usually get out of bed and get my Lycra on in the dining room so I don't wake the wife, it's bloody cold walking through the house in the old y fronts. So heating is now on for an hour in the morning and an hour at night to take the chill off.
