I already have my snow tires on and felt how grippy they are last year (from previous owner), I don't believe i will be having any issues...as in terms of limits, Kreda pretty much showed me those last winter...and damn...i'll tell you what...they are high

As soon as snow falls I'm going to miss the E30 cuz I was waiting to slide that around a bit in areas where if I got out of control nobody would be hurt and there was very little chance the car would get hurt. You won't see me sliding on public road ways unless its low traffic areas at like midnight or later

no e-brake required:

although most AWD rally guys still use ebrake at sometime to help make quick transitions back and forth. through S-curves hence why they have hydro e-brakes. it's not required but helps for going fast.
which reminds me my e-brake doesn't work currently so maybe I should just toss in a hydro ebrake for lolz.
