Because Hungary is a strange place, we celebrate (and expect) Santa Claus on the 6th of December. And because my wife don’t like me bogging down with the 505, she thought I should be equipped for the winter.

So how do you get your car ready for the winter? I got anti-freeze in all relevant fluids, proper winter tires on all four corners, and have replaced the wipers recently. The heater works, and so do all the lights, including fog lights fore and aft. And now I also have a rope and a shovel on board.

The only problem? Not much snow around here yet, and the forecast ain’t bright either.......
