This morning, I took a nice 90 minute drive while there were very few cars around (at around 5:30am). In part, to familiarize myself with the AWD aspect of the car (never dealt with one before in the snow), and in part just to help build my sense of patience (I'm much more crankier if the delays on the roads happen shortly after the start of the drive). This photo was taken at around 6am local time.
Pretty nice with the AWD side of things, quite the happy experience. Definitely seemed like a "point and go" arrangement. The original Yokohama tires on the car, though, are definitely not
remaining on my car for the next winter (will be getting dedicated winter tires next year). They seemed a bit lacking. The Fuzions I had on my old Integra stuck better in the snow than these Yokos, and the Integra was a FWD.
