I'm currently driving a '97 Audi A4 Quattro 1.8T. My wife's car has seen better days and now she wants my Audi, so I need to buy a new car. I'd like to stick with something German but it has to be good in snow. I'll probably hunt for a pristine used car 2-4 years old. Right now I'm looking at the A4, S4, TT Coupe, and BMW 330xi AWD. I'd like to consider a new C-Series with 4MATIC, but I can't afford to spend that much right now. Any other suggestions on a MB that kicks butt in the snow?

You want to kick butt in the snow?, Get one of em SUV's.

ML350 is priced reasonably and is arguably the best one on the market.
Of course, if you have money, the Porsche Cayenne will be THE best european car to perform anywhere. :!:

If it's a SUV I would go with the new Volvo, more for less. I have S60 2.4t and it would do well in snow, get the all wheel drive. I stay with my Coupe and the FLorida weather.
good luck

I've been driving my C230K this winter - ESP helps a LOT, didn't have ANY problems in the snow. I'm very satisfied :)
Ditto!

You can, however, look at the BMW 328xi if you'd like AWD w/o speding the same $$ as on a BMW 330xi.

If you can hold out till the fall the VW Touareg ($35,000 VW version of the Cayenne) will be avilable, with the center locking differential option you could drive to the top of Mount Everest or even 7/11.
