Finally some snow to test out the car and tires for winter driving. 4+ inches fell overnight and low temps caused icing under the snow. Snow is not really deep, but typical for single snow fall events. Car was very stable. Stopped well in both deep snow and hard packed snow, straight without the abs kicking in. On ice, as well as Any other car with 3 season tires. Car starts moving quickly with the awd. Currently not planning on changing out the tires. Read the tires get loud at 15-20,000 miles. I hate loud tires and will think about it if that happens, but that is at least 2 years away.
