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.

It is a good idea to cover the car when it is about to snow; this way there will not be a lot of cleaning...

Put it uncover, not a cover on it.

A cover on it will scratch the paint surface unless the car is absolutely clean and the cover is soft on the paint side.

Nice.

Remember, when shooting snow, you need around +2EV. The sensor tries to make white look grey at 0EV (don't ask me why) so to make white look white you need +EV.

Also, congrats to the Gators for finishing in style. Good luck finding a new coach.

I'm not a camera geek man... that was taken with my iphone. however, UF has a replacement coach, we just need a new quarterback. brantley has really pissed me off this season.
