Moar. MOAR!
A vehicle that is well balanced and that handles well in the dry will also handle well in the snow with appropriate tyres. The only real concern will be ride height, frankly. At which point you best wait for the snow plough

Go for it. Just make sure you have the dealership on speed dial. That engine can be, uhm, "exotic" in its temperament. Heh. As for needing more space, well, my only car is a small two seater and I manage to get along. The R8 may actually have more storage room than my Miata.

Right, so relatively recently I discovered the incredible world of 1970's Ethiopian jazz. I know there is this incredible "Ethiopiques" collection but it seems to be a huge number of separate discs.
