I have read all the horror stories on this site about the IS300 in the snow. With the 2002 coming out with a manual tranny, does it make sense that snow driving will be much better?? I have never owned a manual, so I don't know. Any insights on this are greatly appreciated.

Thank You.

Oh, and conisering you're in IL, I would recommend getting snow tires for the winter. It snows here in MD, but it's too infrequent to warrant me purchasing another set of tires. The few times it did snow, I either took the subway, or drove very, very carefully.

Snow driving is a little more difficult in a manual - takes some practice - but it's a moot point - with snow tires it'll be fine, without it'll suck.
