Not really especially if the build is an early one. I have AWD and it's weird, because it's so subtle how it works. It is pretty much a rwd car until it needs the front 2 wheels, then they just start spinning (say in the snow) and you never really noticed, except that you are moving and the back end is not swinging out in front of you. Remember, nav updates are expensive, so if you go that way, try to get the dealer to update it now for free. I think the performance package is almost a must. The hid's, fog lights and 18" wheels make a huge difference. My phones nav is so much better than any cars is ever going to be, I never cared about the nav.
