I know how to do it, but I dislike it. I also hate it with passion fitting chains to tires.

I have changed wheel twice. First time I have panicked a bit and despite following the guide, it did not work. I locked off all the matrices, but the wheel could not be detached. I felt like stupid blonde girl. So I had to call my dad who had changed wheels many times. Unfortunately, he did not help me, since the wheel was unable to detach from the axis. Since it was in summer, the axis was seemingly too hot and therefore held the wheel despite all locked off matrices. So we tried hit it by a middle wooden log and the wheel finally fell off the axis.

Second time it was in last December. I was in the centre of Bratislava and there was no place to park my car. Fortunately, it was within 30 kph speed limit zone. I fellow the guide and everything worked perfectly. I must admit, that I was a bit afraid, where I could find a wooden log in the middle of the city Thanks God for winter

The car is now sold and I have another one I have not changed the wheel on yet.

Btw. sorry for the offtopic, but I would like to start creating traffic time-lapse videos based on DSLR images. I just want to ask whether someone of you don't know answer to my technical issue.

The intervalometers are quite expensive here (about 60 Euro), but there is an Android application called Camera Timer USB. The description says that special USB cable is necessary. Nothing else is added. Do you think it may work with regular Smartphone USB cable with micro USB adapter? The USB micro adapter costs 3 Eur, what is much lesser than 60 Euro. I know some of you like DSLR shooting.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Montreal. Pity about the winters, though.

And what happened then?

(nothing horrible in that video though - especially after I've read gory details about Nairobi terrorist attack right during my lunch)

A Chinese car Quoros 3 is the safest car on the European market tested in 2013 so far according to the NCAP test.
