...driven your is300 in the snow? One of my concerns with the is300 when I was considering it was that since it would be my daily driver, it would have to brave snow, and I wasn't too keen on RWD and snow. So how's it handle?

I don't expect my CL-S to be great, but it will be better than a RWD config.

Well, my LS400 is pretty bad in the snow. However, when you fill the trunk with sandbags its actually a lot better than my STS was. Your CL-S will actually be pretty bad in the snow for the following reasons.

-Pretty light
-FWD and 260hp. FWD is traditionally better in the snow yes, but the more power the car has the less this becomes a factor
-Low profile tires.

You might just wanna get some chains yourself

Oh, I know the CLS will be less than good, especially seeing how I'm coming off a 4x4 SUV. It will take some "adjustment."

I haven't driven in snow before in my life!!!
I am almost prepared for snow though. Igot my snow rims/tires ready, but they still need some adjustments (the balancing mass is too close to the break caliper). I think I will get it done next week after finals. This quarter really sucks hairy *** .
