Exactly. I drive my GTI on Dunlop Wintersport M3's in the winter. I don't see the need to put myself and others at risk in order to have 414hp that I can't use in the snow. I'll probably be selling the GTI against some sort of SUV next year, so I have better ground clearance, more cargo room, and AWD/4WD.

If it's your year-round daily driver and you can't justify having another car, fine, but make sure you take it really easy, avoid inclines, and ride on good snow tires. When I lived in Pittsburgh I saw enough BMW's sliding backwards down hills to know better than to have the M3 as my only car in winter.
