Totally understand and agree with the tire issue and the warrenty contract issues. I would beleive if a dealer (any dealer) wants to make a sale will do what ever is needed. A question about the tires and german law, I understand the requirement and agree, but when I was stationed there in 94-96 no one said anything to us service members stationed there that there was a requirement for winter tires, Now saying that I was driving a truck at the time and had truck tires that were all season. Never had any issues. I was at Spangdahlem near the Trier.
you are right
by that time, you had to use winter tires in wintery conditions, but no one care as long as nothing happened (as chapter 1 of the highway code says that you always have to act in a way that no one else is in danger!)
so if you did not cause an accident, no prob
if you had an accident in winter and having no winter tires on your car was at least part of the reason, the insurance would not pay for your own damage and charge you for the damage you have done to others...
the laws were changed last year
if you get caught driving in wintery conditions without wintertires the cops will offer you a ticket to pay
and you void your insurance for sure (i.e. it can ruin you)
i found different threads in u.s.-camaro forums and i will check that info with a tire dealer
i found a dealer in munich who offers homologated alloys for camaros for winter use
(this should be done by the dealership...
well, wasn't there a smiley icon holding up a sign: your dealer is an i....?)
wonder why this is coming to my mind right now
if there is a way to get it done, i will find it
i found a leasing company offering leasing with all the insurance stuff (desease, dead etc)
have to find out if they offer leasing for camaros
last friday after the testride my dealer showed my the 3 leasing offers i asked for
camaro 432 hp automatic
WE all know, 432 hp (LS3 european rating) manual or 405 hp (L99 european rating) automatic
do i have to say more?
