    Lookin to buy WRX STI 04

    I am looking at buying a suburau Impreza WRX STI 04. That has alot of stuff added to it. My question is is this car good in the snow. I live in New Jersey in the mountains where the snow can range from 1 inch to 4 feet and in the summer where it gets up to 101 degrees farenheight. SO is this car a good choice for snow? I was also wondering what setting I would put the DccD on in the snow.

    snow tires my man. AWD is great, but the tires that come stock on a STi arent made for the snow, and even the "all weather" tires arent to good in the snow either. Snow extravaganza

    as long as you have good tires its no problem at all in the snow.

    Thanx for the heads up 2 more ?

    1. Should I stick to the auto dccd in the snow or put it in manual.
    2. Can I use the snow tires in the summer?

    I'll second that. Mine is awesome in the snow, as long as it has some rugged snow tires... definitely a step up from driving a civic in the wintertime. (But that doesn't mean I don't still drive the civic to save the scooby.) Oh, and I leave the DCCD on auto.

    well if you buy snow tires, that means youll have your normal summer tires that already came with car. Snow tires tend to wear out faster, and arent rated to go 145+ heh. So, when the evil snow goes away, slap the stock STi tires back on.

    dccd, i have no idea.
