    Winter wheels / tyres

    Try Mytres.co.uk steel wheel Inc. winter tyre 15''. Winter tyres are for all round use as compounds/tread pattern are different to summer tyres and perform better at lower winter temps. not just snow. If you want just 'snow' tyres they are a different animal. I have Nokian winter's on mine now till April then back to summer tyres. Even in the High Peak I don't need dedicated snow tyres. When snow gets to 8'' or more I don't even attempt to go out. I have just put Crossclimate+'s on my partners car and they will be fine all year round. (they are doing an offer at the moment for money back!) Hope you get sorted!😉

    Smeary windscreen when it rains??

    I would not use sugar soap because if you get any on the paint work it will strip any polish off! I have used 'T' cut original on windscreens for years, it leaves it completely clean and smooth (it does not remove chips or scratches, for that I use jewelers rouge but it is messy!) If the wiper blades are in good condition it is worth cleaning them with ISO too if you don't want to use T cut. Ps. I don't use T cut on the wiper blades! 😉

    Woke up to a dead battery

    What is the point of buying a new battery and not fitting it and lugging it around in the car? fit the new one and maybe keep the old for a spare on trickle charge in the garage if you must.

    Is my Rav4 worth saving?

    Have you been to a decent independent body shop for an actual quote for repair? you might find that it can be properly repaired for the 2K (or about) and you get to keep your pride and joy?

    Avensis t27 optional extra

    PM sent to you Sam!
  12. Never in a million years!!! the risk is just not worth it or the money. Car hire is cheap enough for a week anyway apart from letting a total stranger use it.
