We eventually ended up with a depth of about 4-5 inches over here in Leicestershire when i checked on monday morning.

All of the roads that my missus had to drive on were untreated.

Rather than risk taking the little 500 out ( however with good winter tyres fitted), i decided to take the missus to work in the Vitara, mostly just to have a play in the snow on the way home if i am being honest.
It also gave me an excuse to use all of driving aids, Snow/Mud mode, Diff Lock, Hill Descent, ABS anti-lock brakes, etc, etc  on very quiet country roads on my way home.

Vitara instilled confidence and didn't miss a beat.

Now then Karl/Admin... when are you going to find us a heated steering wheel mod to try, my daughters Vauxhall Corsa has it and I have to say I would like one too...

What about the TPMS sensors not being on the steel rims? Or do you need to fit sensors? If so at what cost etc.

You don't need to fit sensors but you'll have the warning light permanently displayed.
It will also fail an mot if presented with the warning light on as its indicating a fault in the tpms system.drive in the snow 20180213

I had sensors fitted when i got the winter tyres on steel rims. like imack says will just throw a warning message if not fitted.
