    Cold weather, I love it, my car is a beast once more :D

    I love the cold weather.

    The car now goes like stink.

    I stuck the induction kit back on and its got the torque back.

    In traffic you get heat soak but I can't really open up in traffic anyway.

    As soon as you hit the open road though it pulls like a train.

    And my springs have settled so the car sits lower.

    I sorted out the tyre pressure also so it has a slightly wedged look and handles great.

    Plus it is now darker in the evening so I can switch on my hids which makes the car look uber cool

    In summer my exhaust rattled, brakes squeked, car was asthmatic comparably.

    I love it when it is not raining but just cold

    I can still drive windows down with music playing as I have heated seats so I dont get cold.

    In the rain all my car does is rev and stay motionless wheel spinning if I put my foot down

    Obviously I cannot drive with windows down when it rains also.



    I love the cold.

    Am I mad or is anyone else with me.
