Re: BF Comp T/A VR4

Commiserations Andrew, but I'm afraid IME quattros do not overcome the laws
of physics as they apply to ice either.  Now a set of Hakka 1s might go a
long way to helping.  I just put a set on my wife's Jetta GLX and the
difference from the Dunlop 4000s is remarkable.  In fact on ice it feels
better than my similarly equipped Ur-Q ??
