Highly doubt youíll see much of an issue, itís not like Chicago gets ridiculously high temperatures in the summer.

According to Bridgestone, the handling will suffer in the summer with the tyre being too soft. I wouldn't want to be involved in a crash in summer with winter tyres on.

I'd source a spare set of wheels and get the winter tyres fitted on them and swap them over when the snow stops.

https://www.bridgestonetire.com/tread-and-trend/drivers-ed/driving-winter-tires-year-round

I read that too, and thought: that's exactly what a tire manufacturer would say: "We advise you to buy multiple sets of tires"  ;D

Is it possible to sell a car with outstanding finance if I make it clear on the ad? Obviously will pay it off as soon as the cash is in my hand but not sure if it's allowed

No, as you don't own the car, the finance company do. I remember our kid trying to PtEx his motorbike and couldn't do it due to finance.

What you have to do is get a settlement figure from them first and pay that off then you can sell it. Most people won't touch a car with outstanding finance, as if you don't pay it off, then the finance company can take the car back.

Deleted my post just as you replied, got an answer from a mate. But cheers for the response, wish I could just sell it off as it's just preventing me from putting down a deposit for a house. Went for a 0% finance but should've maybe gone for a 5 year deal rather than 3.

Imagine the lawsuit if they said it was ok and a multiple vehicle pile up was caused when a snow tyre fell apart on a motorway.

Motorbike racing wet tyres start to fall apart when they get used in the dry, I know its different extremes but that is the risk you run. I drive HGV's part time and overheating trailer tyres will come apart - I've had it happen where the whole tread came off. I personally wouldn't drive on snow tyres in the summer.

Contact the finance company. They may have a dealer that will buy it, clearing the finance themselves and paying you the balance. Or ask the dealer who provided the car if they will do it.

Fair enough, thanks - I think I'll just go with some all-seasons. Killing me having to spend the money to be honest, we should just get rid of the thing and replace it with uber, but the wife won't have it

All seasons is a good choice, the Goodyear Vector tyres get great reviews. Can get your issue, we had two cars 10 years ago and mine was barely being used, ended up selling it and sharing her car.

I won't let my wife get a taxi anymore since Uber started over here and governement funding cuts. We've got cities like Wolverhampton giving taxi licences out like free gifts to drivers from outside their area, who the local authority where they live have refused licences to and then they work for Uber or local cab companies here.

Firestone often have deals where if you buy their winter tires, they will swap them on / off each season for free.

Iíve finally given up doing the commute to work (in MCR) by car, so Iím debating getting something a bit quicker as MPG not so much of an issue. Iíve currently got a 2014 VW CC and got the auto box for the horrible commute, but after previously always being a manual fan, Iím a bit of a convert. Iím just weighing up my options as the missus is about to get back into driving lessons. So Iím gonna need something cheap to buy and insure for her first car. We we tend to do a couple of U.K. breaks away with the kids most years (Centre parcs and the like) meaning we need something with a decent boot / potentially with roof bars / a tow bar for bikes and stuff. I really fancy an Audi S3 sportback (2015ish), plenty of poke, sounds pretty decent and can still ferry the kids about of a weekend. Which would mean something like a Zafira / Nissan note for the missus and for the trips away in the U.K.

Iím just not sure it makes sense though, as the S3 would cost a fair bit to buy / maintain / probably lose a bit on it and anything bigger for the missus probably cost a lot to insure. So would I be better buying something bigger and still quick(ish) that would mean buying something smaller and probably cheaper to insure for the missus? Suppose the options would be a boaty estate for me (slightly older 535d or the likes), bit less Ďfuní but still fast. A fiat 500 or something similar for the missus to do the school run in?

Any other ideas?

We used to have a 2007 S3.  Fucking terrified me at times if Iím honest.

Nearly 300hp in a car that size.  It was rapid, and had suspension so hard it was like riding a tea tray.

Jeepers... probably easier in a way though, the S3 felt rocket powered.  Too much power for its size I thought anyway

With a car that big I can see it being more suitable

(Actually, this is nonsense.  Iíd be even more terrified ;D)

200bhp motorbike  :thumbup

Had a play in a Focus RS last summer, that was an utter hoot.

Big problem with the Audi RS series is that the car far outstrips the driving ability of the Driver.

Ordered a 2018 Mazda-3 5 door hatchback. Picking it up 21-22 or 25-26, depending on when I can take off. :)

Sports line variant. Dark blue colour. 2liter 120BHP Petrol Engine.

 I love them bikes, beautiful machines :wellin

Never been on track, seen too many wreck their roadbikes and nowhere to store a track bike. Rode a mates R6, was like a toy compared to my R1

Someone our kids knows has got a Kawasaki H2R, over 300BHP. I'd love a go on one of those.

Fantastic beast, but where do the Labradors sit?

The RS6 is that weird mix of mad fun and practicality. 

Would love a blast on a powerful bike all the same 😀

It's a very nice car. My dad has a red one. I got the Mazda 2 in dark blue and while the colour is nice, it's also a fucking pain in the arse as you can see every bit of dirt that gets on it.

Really? Could you tell me more about the car?

I am really excited as its my first ever car. Rented a fair bit of cars myself. But its a different feeling owning a car that, people say, has a bond with its driver. And hence the Mazda 3. I was looking at the CX-3 but decided against it as its based on the Mazda 2. And I wanted a compact class car. I could have gone for the CX-5 but it was a expensive.

Not a lot I can say about it except that my dad is happy with it. The only thing he doesn't like is the sensor for the emergency breaking thing. He says that it sometimes overreacts. Could be just him though. I borrowed the car for a couple of days and had no issues with it. My experience was that it's a nice car that handles well and the 120 horse power is enough to drive around nicely. The only issue I have is that the windows in the back are rather small and therefore your view is a bit restricted depending on the situation. But that seems to be an issue with the design of Mazda's newest cars in general. It's even worse in my Mazda 2.

All in all, I'm pretty fond of Mazda. They do build nice cars and I think they are very reliable. My first Mazda 2 was 10 years old and I never had any real issues with it except for the usual stuff like renewing the brakes from time to time.

My old mans got an S6 saloon (about 2013 I think), V8 TT. Not as balls out as the RS6, same motor but not as tuned, itís still rapid.

Cool. Thanks for the response. It is always nice hearing feedback  from current owners. Makes you a little bit more content with the choice of the car. And Youtube videos arent always "ownership" focused, if you know what I mean. They give you a very subjective view of the car under the pretext of "ownership review". Like, they drive the car around for a week or two. But not from a current owner who has lived with the car for about 2-3 years. So whilst I do watch the videos, I do take them with a pinch of salt. So its always 50-50 for me.

So your dad has a Mazda. You had a Mazda. And your current car is also a Mazda? So I guess your family is pretty satisfied with a Mazda. :)

I test drove the Mk II New Mini Cooper at the weekend, three of them to be exact. Great fun to drive, but assembled terribly, all of them had bits of interior coming off. For the money I want to spend, I think I would be better off fixing up my current Toyota.

XC40 T3 R Design Pro, convenience pack and/or panoramic roof (haven't decided on the last two choices).

I have a friend who is the senior design strategist for Volvo who gave me a sweet friends and family discount code to take to the dealers. £2000 deposit and £286 a month for the R-Design, £312 for the Pro.
