Up here in the frozen wastes there are these folks who like to splash out on everything. They are logophilic bling-mingers. I have studied their antics over the past week in the arctic conditions on our roads and have compiled a shortlist of the crappest blingmobiles you can drive on snow laden roads:
In 5th place: All Jap sports cars
In 4th place: Anything with "Turbo" or "X" appearing in its name
In 3rd place: BMW X3's and 5's (I know, these have "X" in their name but they deserve an extra mention as they really are naff and slide about like crazy)
In 2nd place: BMW's, generally
and in 1st place, the most hopeless car I've seen on snow, is.....
the new Mercedes 230 series, one of which I had to push, even on a totally level car park under a mere 6 inches of fresh snow - the thing just sat there with its rear wheels slowly revolving like they were on ball bearings. A knackered old Rover on skinny tyres ran rings around it. Beware!
