But you know a change in limit is approaching. You'll probably see buildings and street lamps long before you see an actual speed limit sign.

Even as an enthusiast, I do prefer to use a steam cleaner on our car interiors.

I'm not at all a fan of the current crop of Mercs. I find the interiors far too fussy for my liking. Not keen on the front end of this car either.

Do these cars not have ABS? Looked like all 4 wheels had locked up.

Can't quite understand what caused the car rotate anti-clockwise into the path of the coach, after nearly doing a 180?

You could try using a pump sprayer rather than a foam lance to apply your snow foam. With BH Auto Foam, I find this method just as effective. Also, you'll be far less likely to get any on other...

As above, pat dry using a deep pile microfibre drying towel. If you sheet remaining water off the car using an open hose, you'll be left with very little water to actually mop up.

Tricky. Not sure I could pick one car to cover all bases. I feel I would need three as a minimum - track day, commuter, load lugger/family wagon. Think I'd have to pick a Cayman (GT4, of course). ...

It won't foam up through a pressure sprayer. So, it will look like you have sprayed a slightly soapy solution on your car rather than giving it a covering of foam.

Yes, absolutely. And constant re-assesment of risk, as it can change rapidly, especially in built up areas.
