That's unfortunate, but the car is at a disadvantage for being so heavy. Conditions wouldn't affect it so much as it's 4wd, I think it might just be slow. Anyway, it's not like Top Gear lap times matter, I'm sure half of M8 buyers have never heard about the show!

I know it rains every day, except the two weeks of summer, in England but it looks quite wet and cool. Not that fair for apples to apples. Easy 3 seconds better in the dry I would guess.

Not quite. Winter only lasts 3 months. It's just Autumn and Spring that get in the way of summer.🤣
