    The other three who I'll be travelling with, we are arguing as to who will drive and hence can't have a few sherberts
    during the journey.

    Without sharing who drives which, I'd appreciate your insightful feedback as to which chariot we
    should choose, we've got the following to choose from:

    X6 M50D
    Q7 ordinary v6 tdi
    5GT 3.0tdi
    XC90 - the new one with a 4 cylinder diesel and a zillion turbos to give it some ooomph, but why oh why would anybody pay that kind of money to have a car which sounds like a hairdryer ? Ok he's got an M650 too, but that won't carry us all so it's out of the question

    Answers on a postcard please

    The 2 Beemers will be terrible if they see so much as a snowflake, and worse if you encounter any ice.
    I'd pick the Volvo, personally, but your Audi should be fine in the slippery stuff.

    Have fun!

    Yes, the serious answer would be Q7 and XC90, but it also depends on who has the best tyres for the conditions.

    Also, if you ski in a flat cap, then the Volvo wins, whereas if you like white powder all over your face, probably the Q7...

    On Monday I drove around 400 miles in a RWD 430hp DSC BMW in big bad snowy conditions and then again last Sunday for about 300 mies with no problems and tend to do that every year. Maybe some people are just scaredy-cat wimpy drivers
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    In other news, milan is still unable to organise a piss-up.

    Good Morning MarkyMarkAndTheFunkyBunch, WTFH, Mordy, Shauny et al,

    where to start ?

    Well somehow my car was selected

    The good news is, the guy with the X6 refuses to be a passenger, and hence will be the driver, so I can relax in comfort and enjoy a few sherberts with the other passengers

    Milan.
