    Hello, it says you're from Tividale? just down the road from me in Rowley Regis :)
    I drove in that bit of snow this morning but luckily it didnt settle. Might be repeating the obvious but..
    1) use the aircon with the heater to stop the windows steaming up, and
    2) if your wipers are more than a few years old replace them as old ones harden up and bump across the window without clearing much.

    We can't vouch for it yet as we got our Copen as a consequence of our Figaro being written off in the latter stages of last winter, so missed the worst of the cold weather!
    However, we have seen reports from drivers saying it handles quite well, especially with the winter tyres added, so we have just had ours fitted and are now waiting for the winter to bite... Will let you know when we've seen some snow, but am assured that even in the colder temps these tyres are better than the normal tyres, we'll soon see.

    I don't think it is much different to any other front wheel drive car, except for the low clearance!

    Yep I agree. I've managed to drive to work fine, then get stuck on the works car park because of the deep fresh untouched snow.
    I've got a pair of snow socks in the boot just in case. Never needed them yet in three years. Touch wood.

    Can't remember exactly. You need to buy them based on the tyre size.
