The lease on the A8L is coming to an end in a few months and am now thinking about its replacement.

Of course the S8 and the S550 are the usual suspects, but the QP remains such an intriguing option for me that I HAVE to consider it seriously - especially finding out that it takes 4 1/2 to 5 months to order one.

I live in the northeastern US which means inclement weather is just part of the equation in winter. We do have an SUV that my wife drives and other summer driven cars that do not get driven in the winter months, so another "good weather only" car is out of the question.

I always buy a set of snow tires for my daily drivers so that's what I'd do too if I did go with a QP.

Does anyone have any experience driving the QP in winter? More specifically, driving the car in snow when equipped with snow tires? The A8L has proven to be great in winter and I know I'll miss the surefootedness of the Quattro if I don't get the S8, but I've owned RWD cars before so that's not a big concern. I'm sure many of our European friends take their QP to the Alps or Garmisch in the wintry months, but for some reason, I find the idea of a Maserati a slightly different proposition than a BMW, Audi or Mercedes-Benz; hence the probably stupid question.

Any input, experience and comment would be appreciated.
