    Driving RWD in snow depends on you, your car and your tyres. I'm just back from Austria, where most of the Mercs and BM's are running around on their winter steel wheels with snow tyres on.
    I have no room to talk, as I once got my Omega Wedged across the width of our road, trying to get it up the drive in snow!

    It all depends what you used to driving and what you prefer ?
    I also have a 5 series as well as the vectra and it was fine in the snow as rwd is what im used to so i know what it is going to do ..........................most of the time !

    I used to have a Granada many years ago, when snow was almost common in the winter, and it was very good in the snow. I had all the confidence in the world driving it.
