Holy crap, it almost didnt after the road conditions this morning.. The snow started to melt yesturday then it froze last night and snowed, me with my summer tires on, not good. Its very hard to get going, also, ive found gearing down to 1st helps alot, unless your going 20 mph and the car slides cause it actually looses traction doing that!

Good luck w/ the 250,000km...

I crossed that last summer around August/September with my 91...
Not 1hr after crossing it my moonroof stopped working correctly, and just over 1,000km later my tranny started to die....

I hope you have better luck
