Had the first snow expierence with the car here in WVa. Basically the public utility doesnt plow or salt roads on weekends around these parts for some reason. Drove home in an ice storm yesterday from a night shift, some city roads, some interstate and up a 500ft hill all on unplowed 2-3" ice/snow covered roads. I know 2-3" is nothing for many of you in true snow belts, but believe me, when roads are not treated and you have the terrain we do around here, things get treacherous. Basically, the car was a stud. Traction control light was flicking most the way home but had no problems keeping control of the vehicle. Never even spun out the back wheels going up a steep unplowed hill. Was blown away with the performance really, felt about as good as the wife's 4x4 SUV. Passed a Porsche 911 going like 10mph on the interstate and laughed at the difference in confidence between these two performance cars in snow. Another good part, started my heater from the app and got into a 90 degree car with visable windows, no scraping needed. The car just continues to impress!
