I used up 3 sets of tires on the Nordschleife and GP track and 2 sets of brake pads this season. The ///M is questionable in the rain so it should be absolutely horrible on the snow. Not a smart investment to be plowing in a $70K + car just my opinion.
That sir, depends on the tires. All of the UHP Summer tires I know of or have used are great in the rain. Well, at least while they have enough tread depth to channel the water. Mine is fantastic in the wet on the CS3s.

As for snow, I MUCH prefer the M to my 08 GTI, and it's not even close. I find the M much more stable and balanced than the GTI was.

Having said that, if I had a Cayenne I'd rock that in the snow simply because of the additional ground clearance.
