What tires do u have the 3? Seems like the tread pattern on the Audi is much more suited for snow to begin with. Seems like the Audi tires are cutting deeper too.

i have a feeling that this snow storm is going to be SOFT like mcdicks soft ice cream cones. BUT since its our first snow fall of this season. the roads are going to be fucked up and people wont know how to drive.

No problems for me this morning. I was quite impressed with the xDrive, the car took off from a stop with no slipping at all and I had no issues while driving as well.

I noticed my front end (except for the headlights and foglights) was completed covered in snow and ice once I got to work.

The first two cars I saw that were in trouble were Honda Civics...not that that means anything - I live in Markham anyways...lol.

But all of the cars in trouble seemed to have been caught in the ridges created by the snowplows...
