Snow Tires On Sale Now!

Posted by on Oct 31, 2011 in Slider, Uncategorized

Winter is on it’s way! We don’t always get a lot of snow in Vancouver. When we do though, it tends to be pretty slippy and sloppy. Modern winter tires really do work. They get you going, they get you around corners,  and most importantly, they get you stopped. You’ll be amazed at how well your car performs in the rain, sleet and snow. Our prices really are excellent for winter tires. We don’t make a lot of money on them, but it keeps us busy, and we get to meet more of the folks in Vancouver who drive Volkswagen’s and Audi’s. So it’s good for...

Come in. Eat our sweet fruits. Drink our fine coffee. Please.

No flavoured water here. There are four mugs just waiting to be used....

This week, we’ve got a Maserati, and not just any Maserati. No roachy 80′s Bi-turbo. No sketchy Ghibli with strange electrics and finicky carbs. No, this one is actually quite sweet. A 2006 Gransport. We can’t agree if it’s fully pretty. It’s nice. It turns heads, and it sure looks good out front, but it’s a bit portly in the haunches, it’s got a body...
