We don't tend to get a lot of snow here in NC, but we have gotten recordable amounts twice now, 1 week apart. This last one was more freezing rain and sleet, so the roads were in pretty bad shape. Even with the Michelin Pilot Sport PS3's on my Ti with the handling package, I had minimal problems. The traction control did kick on a few times, but nothing more than a couple of seconds, and we were sailing. No sliding, no loss of control, people staring at me like I was crazy for driving somewhat normally instead of 10 miles an hour. I'm originally from Pennsylvania, and with a birthday in February, I learned to drive in snow and ice. And with a 5 speed and the ability to downshift and compression brake, I had no issues. Quite impressed, really.
