Ps. WHY DO PEOPLE WITH FRONT WHEEL DRIVE CARS INSIST ON DRIVING IN SNOW/BAD CONDITIONS?
As opposed to what, rear-wheel drive - surely you mean why do people who can't drive go out in bad conditions?
Luckily we've a Landie, or more correctly my wife has one, which is very useful as my 535i can stay parked up. Its quite amazing what 4-wheel drive (and a computer) can achieve.
