I can't even find a website for Vancouver Motorcars. Are they supposed to be an exotic car dealer?
Re-opening on Boundary by Benz and Autohaus, I think they're under a new name though, so probably vancouver motorcars.

Not sure on details, didn't see a site either

Nah thats definitely hers. She has picked her daughter up from my school a number of times in that 599 GTO. They also own that livery 599 GTO aswell.

^ part of me thinks it is really kool, people drive their exotics in the snow, but part of me thinks people are idiots driving their exotics in the snow with summer tires.....I wonder if ICBC would decline their insurance if you get into an accident with summer tires in the snow.....I hope so.....

moving the car from the showroom 20 meters into the parking lot for a pic then back in showroom is definitely considered "driving".

Well, the photo didn't come with a video of how the car got there. I saw plenty of cars not prepared for the snow out driving in it, theres nothing that tells us otherwise that this wasn't one of them until someone who knows that chimes in.

Probably not the best assumption that everyone knows exactly which lot that is and which cars are usually in their showroom..

Snow tires are not mandatory in the GVRD therefore ICBC can't deny them coverage if they get into an accident on summer tires.

Assuming they can if its on a class A highway like sea to sky, cypress bowl rd, seymour etc?
On a more enjoyable note though.

After that the cars are rebodied Opels/Vauxhalls with standard GM bin parts. In the 9-5's GM even took the previously bullet proof B series motors and "lightened" the internals (replaced with cheaper parts), got optimistic with the HP ratings (b234's made basically the same, but Saab listed the minimum hp they'd make under hot/heat-soaked conditions) leading to recalls and reliability problems.

TLDR; pre GM cars were already subject to sometimes questionable reliability but at least they had great motors, post GM influence do not touch with a 10 foot pole.

ICBC | ICBC responds to questions about winter tires and insurance

Quote:
Winter tires are not mandatory in B.C. but ICBC recommends their use in snowy conditions, particularly if you live in an area where you would normally expect a lot of snow. In snowy conditions, driving without proper winter tires may not be the wisest or safest decision, but it does not affect a customer’s insurance coverage or eligibility to make a claim.
However-

Quote:
Driving without winter tires will not void your insurance in the event of a claim or mean that you are automatically at-fault for a crash. If you get in a crash where winter tires could have helped, it may be a deciding factor in determining whether or how much you are at-fault.

I've been to their showroom before and I can confirm that the photo is taken meters from the shop. The other photos that you see from that photoshoot is just around the corner of the shop.
