Although summer may not quite officially be upon us, winter never really happened either. Oh, it was cold a few times, and it even snowed… once or thrice, if memory serves — but that’s it. The winter tires were money well wasted, the car’s clocked up a good 167,000km (thanks to a recent trip to Austria) and has been given the TÜV seal of approval for another two years (thanks to a recent service).
In fact, it’s definitely time to revert back to the summer slicks, particularly since I’ve caught myself approaching the supposed 190km/h limit for the current rubber on more than just a few recent occasions.
And, just in time for this posting: one of the electric windows has packed up.
