Nice, @martyg.
TTRS? Think that has the same 5-cyl 400 hp engine as in my RS3.
Loads of fun.

Yes. TT RS. I have maybe 150 miles on it. I discovered the limits of the Pirelli P-Zeros this cold morning. No real drama. They just slid out a bit without me really getting on the car. I have a decision to make on what I drive, when, and what rubber to shoe them with.

LOL. Made it about 500 miles on the stock P-zeros (car arrived in late fall '19) and promptly switched over to Pilot Sport A/S 3+ for a bit more security in the cold and light snow.
Now at around 10k miles and the Michelins have proven to be a decent compromise tire but certainly not something I'd drive in deeper snow or icy conditions.

second the recommendation to replace the P Zeros with the pilot a/s 3
I try to avoid driving my old TT in the snow but they also have much better grip on wet roads and I never noticed any increase in road noise.

3 rd recommendation My p zero were removed when the temps hit 50 with the Cinti dws 06. If the as4 was out when I did , I would have went that direction. I have the as3 on another car as well.
