Fun car, but scared of snow flakes

ReviewGreat ride. A little slow off the line but rips above 5000 RPM's. Handling is amazing. The brakes are less than high-performance--very squeeky. (I've gone through 2 sets of rotors with only 26k). As far as snow goes, this thing starts slipping and sliding about 2 secs after the first flake hits the ground---garage it.
Best FeaturesAcceleration and handling are tops. Maybe two other cars in the price range can match or beat it.
Worst FeaturesWork on the brakes and rotors. Come on, it's a sports car for crying out loud. You shouldn't be warping rotors after 10k. Despite 3 sets of break pads the squeek after about 4k.
