It's autumn. I'm looking for a new car, and I have ski trips to Mt Hotham in mind. Ideally, I'd like a sporty, medium size SUV. We all know the regulation that you need diamond pattern chains that fit if you are driving to Hotham in the winter. Ideally, I'd like something like the Volvo XC60 would be lovely, but it doesn't take diamond pattern snow chains on its standard wheel & tyre combo. Same for a VW Tiguan, a Landrover Discovery Sport, and even an Audi Q5, despite Audi being a major sponsor of the resort. I know I could get another set of wheels and tyres, but I'd much prefer not to have to store wheels and change them twice a year. I also know that there are a whole bunch of forum participants with opinions, ideas and cars. So what do you reckon? Thanks.
