Yeah, it sucked in the winter with the stock tires. But at this point, few have stock tires on them, and I'd put real winter tires if there was a lot of snow use happening. We rarely get more than a week of snow here, so it wasn't feasable to get a second set of winter tires just for that, so I sucked it up and drove carefully when there was snow on the ground.
But in the dry it was a blast, and one of the best handling cars, FWD or otherwise, I've driven, which is saying something. And the 143 mph top speed was so much faster than anyone should use on the street that how fast it was was really unimportant. It FELT quicker than 7 seconds to 60, too. In fact, it felt closer to 5 seconds to 60, even though it wasn't.
