    Hey everyone. New here form Michigan. I’ve been borrowing my brothers 201 Sho PP while he’s selling it. Now I’m thinking of buying it. My question first question is how good is the awd. We get a lot of snow here in upper mi. Next question is about reliability. It’s a 2015 with 60k on the clock. Anything I should know about? I use to drag race motorcycles and now that I have two kids and one on the way I figured this, with from what I looked up, this car with a little work (livernois package) Could keep me happy as a DD and maybe a track day here and there. Anything I should know before I but it?

    Yes stay away from Livernois. With a cheap sct x4 device for Ford and a tune from Gearhead, AJP or Ortiz would be alot cheaper and have more features and drive better. If drive ability is what you want look to gearhead, more power look to ajp. Not sure on Ortiz, heard some things but I'd still recommend.

    With a good set of tires, my favorite being, Continental extreme contact DWS, these cars are a beast in the snow. I live in the snow belt of northwest Indiana. Stay on top of your fluids and general maintenance and these cars will treat you well.

    Yes. Steer far clear from that nasty, icky vendor that begins with an 'L'.

    Total poo poo.

    During those years when I drove my SHO in the winter here in the equally craptastic conditions in Chicago, my SHO was not only very dependable, but also an utter blast to drive.

    I too rocked the Conti DWS's.

    I could only imagine what using a true, dedicated winter tire would improve it even that much further.

    Also, at 60k you should be considering all fluids swapped, as well as changing out the plugs.

    Enjoy the acquisition.
