Yes, plenty of snow then. But sadly warming up by the weekend. I hope it comes back with a vengeance!

I have an automatic gearbox. This is incredibly smooth, and never found myself to be wishing for a manual.

Don't have new snowchains yet actually, still have to purchase. Had for my old car, but they won't fit the new wheels. Not sure what new ones to get, so if anyone has any recommendations?

The tyres are Dunlops, although not run-flat. Dealer was unable to get the Pirelli run-flats I originally requested, as they were out of stock. I did however get a free compressor I will have to check the exact model, but they are 225/60-17 99 H. Pirelli would have been my first choice, but the Dunlops seem to be excellent so far!

Sorry to hear the Utah trip was cancelled, wish you a very snowy New Year!!
